yes to pick up information about the charaters i might have missed when concentrating on the plot
yes. I like the way her charaters are so well rounded you are never sure who will remain to be the most important.
also the story within the story is captivating.
i was very interested in the theme of forgiveness and evil...

Sage. I loved the way she worked through her pangs of conscience to arrive at a moral decision even though she did not believe in God.
I was Moved at every turn, from curiousity to disgust, depression to relief and satisfaction. I enjoyed the plot and sub-plots. This author îs very tallented.
One of the best books I've ever listened to. Something for every kind of listener. The performers were excellent in their portrayals. It felt like I was hearing it directly from the characters.
Yes.......I love history and history has a dark side and Jodi did her research....facts were expressed that only one who cared enough to tell a completely fact based story could do.
The different performers and their geniune accents made it seem like I was experiencing it.
I wanted to but could not. Had to tear myself away.
Highest praise for Jodi Picoult's "The Storyteller." Beautifully written, heart-wrenching, eye-opening. Picoult expertly weaves the threads together.
JP out did herself with this book! Unable to fathum what the jews went through but I believe she was pretty close without being to graphic.
Honestly one of the best audio book I have heard in a long time. You will keep thinking about the characters long after it is over.
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.
