Jodi Picoult is an amazing "Storyteller". I started this book and could not put it down. I read all night.
This is much more than your usual Picoult novel. In fact, it is one of my favorite books of the last few years. Extremely sincere, graceful, moving, with a fresh perspective on holocaust survivors and war criminals.
I was very taken with this book. Very difficult to put down.
Narration is perfect.
Say something about yourself!
I had no idea that the book contained so much graphic material on the Holocaust. It wasn't what I expected so I skipped many chapters. I will return this book.
Psychologist and writer who looks for inspiration and escape in witty tales and perplexing mysteries.
Someone wanting help with insomnia.
The book moves very slowly. It needs a greater pull earlier on to garner the audience member's attention. I enjoy reading Picoult's work, but this is definitely not her finest.
Showing more enthusiasm
I never got far enough to meet all of the characters.
Sadly, this is just not an engaging work. If it had been my introduction to Picoult it would have been my last.
The different voices of the characters were well done.
Every Jodi Picoult book has a twist and manipulations at the end of the book!
I have listened to other books narrated by Edoardo Ballerini, he does a great job.
Of course the Holocaust scenes are horrifying and brutal.
I discovered Jodi Picoult though this novel, and was impressed enough to move backward through her enormous body of work, reading every one. Some were wonderful, others tedious, but THE STORYTELLER stands out as Picoult's finest work to date. It seems as though the multi-character narrative Picoult has used in most of her novels, finds its perfection in this one. Storylines, histories, and emotional arcs weave seamlessly herein. The reader always has a front row seat, witnessing with rapt clarity as this multi-layered story unfolds. Bravo Jodi! What's next?
Compelling subject matter, clever structuring, great characterisation
My Sister's Keeper - by the same author
it brought the book to life - one can identify with the characters
My grandmother's tale. This story is amazingly accurate according to the stories my grandmother told me. The characters are real humans having something happen to them.
No, It was expected including the who is this Nazi.
The grandmother, she even sounded like mine. Made me cry.
The part where they dealt with the tooth ache, it reminded me of a real event.
Loved the history and the "re-living of history" in this book. Raw emotion and feelings. A great book to listen to!
Yes ... if only I had the time!
I can't imagine anyone being disappointment with this book unless they were just looking for "fluff".

I’ve always been drawn to holocaust stories because they are so compelling; all you need to do is scroll through my library to see how many I’ve read – but this one was notch above most.
I was not just gripped - I was riveted, spellbound… I hung on to every word; it was so engrossing!!
It was like eating, the more I consumed, the more I wanted; even the romance didn’t get on my nerves and that’s saying a lot!
Easily the best book I’ve read all year.
