    "The finest Picoult yet. Brilliantly written."

    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?

    Story
    "must read for 3rd gen Jews"
    If you could sum up The Storyteller in three words, what would they be?

    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.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    No, It was expected including the who is this Nazi.


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    The grandmother, she even sounded like mine. Made me cry.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The part where they dealt with the tooth ache, it reminded me of a real event.

    "Jodi Picoult ... Never a Disappointment"

    Loved the history and the "re-living of history" in this book. Raw emotion and feelings. A great book to listen to!


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

    Emotion


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes ... if only I had the time!


    Any additional comments?

    I can't imagine anyone being disappointment with this book unless they were just looking for "fluff".

    Story
    "I Was Transported!"

    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.

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