Jodi Picoult's poignant number one New York Times best-selling novels about family and love tackle hot-button issues head on. 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. After Josef reveals the heinous act he committed, Sage feels he may deserve that fate. But would his death be murder or justice?

I don't look anything like that figurine, just love the fact that she's holding a book like that.
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?
Two friends, a bad tooth and a fountain pen. When someone loves you - they'll do anything to help you.
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.
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,
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
