In The Storyteller, Sage Singer befriends Josef Weber, a beloved Little League coach and retired teacher. But then Josef asks Sage for a favor she never could have imagined - to kill him.

    I don't look anything like that figurine, just love the fact that she's holding a book like that.

    Story
    "Predictable and Amazing"
    Would you listen to The Storyteller again? Why?

    I wouldn't listen to the entire thing, I would listen to Minka's Story again. I found it Heart wrenching and enthralling. Also I would listen to the story Minka wrote. Even though I liked Leo, even if he was (to me) a little too good to be true. I wouldn't want to listen to the story between him and Sage...unless his first question to her was - where's Eva? We walked into the house and Eva wasn't here - where's Eva Sage? And if indeed she did have Eva, why would she have had her if she didn't know what had happened?


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Storyteller?

    Two friends, a bad tooth and a fountain pen. When someone loves you - they'll do anything to help you.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The Narrator Suzanne Toren brought Minka's memories to life in a way hearing it read in my own head by my own voice -never would have.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes I did shed a tear listening to Minka. And I laughed with Sage at a moment when the person whose face she laughed in - somehow didn't expect it,


    Any additional comments?

    There was a point when Leo went to speak to Minka - and I knew how it would end - I felt it was the only way it should end, and was I pleased that it did end that way.

    This book is not good. If I knew there were some weird vampire characters I would have skipped it.

    "Riveting!"

    I could not stop listening. The way the book transitions from one story to another so gracefully is amazing. I am suprised I didn't see the ending sooner but it was a great twist!

    "Moderately suspenseful"

    I stuck with this book until the end but in parts I was tempted to abandon ship. Some parts really dragged, and the transitions to the different points of view was awkward at best. The narrators were very good.

    "My review"

    I really enjoyed reading this book, and having the audio really helped me understand the characters. There are differences from the audio and the book, but not to bad to where I lost my spot.
    Over all, I enjoyed the book and would recommend it.

    "Fantastic!"

    Picoult is a fantastic writer. Her descriptions make you feel as if you are in the middle of the story. I did not know what to expect with this book. I am glad I "read" it through audible.

    "I loved this book."

    I'm addicted to audio books and this is one of the best I've listened to. It made me think about the holocaust and the survivors in a much more personal way.

    "Enlightening story and very good narrators."

    I listen to many books. I have started choosing books with multiple narrators. This book came to life through the narrators. I felt as if I were in the periphery of this drama.
