    "loved this! A story within a story!"
    Would you listen to The Storyteller again? Why?

    yes to pick up information about the charaters i might have missed when concentrating on the plot


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

    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.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no


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

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    i was very interested in the theme of forgiveness and evil...

    No.


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

    "Simply Amazing......"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Storyteller to be better than the print version?

    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.


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

    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.


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

    The different performers and their geniune accents made it seem like I was experiencing it.


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

    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.

    "Words escape me... Picoult's finest work!"

    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.

    "Not Prepared"

    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.

    "Returned"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone wanting help with insomnia.


    What could Jodi Picoult have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    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.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Showing more enthusiasm


    What character would you cut from The Storyteller?

    I never got far enough to meet all of the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    Sadly, this is just not an engaging work. If it had been my introduction to Picoult it would have been my last.
