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?

    "Prepare to be absorbed into the storyteller."
    Where does The Storyteller rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of the best audio books that I have had a chance to listen to. I think listening to this book is advantageous over reading it,. I sometimes struggle with foreign names, and it is easier to hear them, than trying to determine their correct pronunciation, while reading them. I hope you know what I mean.


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

    The plot was tragic and riveting. The author draws you into each character's side of the story. You are put directly into the scenes.


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

    The multiple narrators worked. I thought it would be confusing, or disruptive. I was wrong.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    This will effect you deep inside., where you live.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't hesitate. You won't regret listening to this book.

    "Excellent"
    What made the experience of listening to The Storyteller the most enjoyable?

    This is beyond a doubt my favorite Jodi Picoult book. It was predictable (as most of her books usually are) but still held my interest till the very end. Well written and well narrated.
    Highly reccomend it.

    "What a stunner"

    This woman knows how to write I have listened to this book twice & can't believe how well Jodi Picoult portrays the way people feel, behave and live who they are. All her characters are solid well defined people & even with a subject as difficult as the holocaust, she writes with such understanding of the different feelings & emotions of all involved, whether survivors, victims or perpetrators. I know I will come back to this book again & again. As I do with many of Jodi Picoult's books. They stimulate MY emotions & feelings.

    "Tough Listen"

    The narrators of this story do their characters justice. The story is beautiful and I'm so glad Jodi Picoult wrote this story. However, be forewarned, this is a TOUGH book to listen to because of the subject matter. The descriptions of the Jewish ghettos and Concentration camps. I burst out crying multiple times.

    "Incredible Story. Incredible Narration."

    This is not the type of book I normally read. It was highly recommended from a good friend, and I'm extremely happy I listened. This is immediately one of my favorites. The story is incredible and all the different narrators were fantastic.

    "A real page turner"

    Enjoyed this book but wasn't too impressed/satisfied with ending.

    Gripping in many places but couldn;t really connect with character Sage.

    "Ambitiously promises a lot which it can’t quite de"
    Any additional comments?

    This is a moving account of the holocaust with excruciating attention to the horror- the subject matter is dealt with better then might be expected. However, I was desperate for the book to do more that it managed to achieve- it promises in its subplots and undertones to explore the monstrous nature of humanity and unpack the complexity of forgiveness and death. However, these themes never seem to quite get out of the box. I failed to understand the ending and the decisions made by the central characters left me back tracking through the story to see whether it was my mistake to find it baffling. This book promises much that it can’t quite deliver, tackling an incredibly difficult subject it falls short of its own very high ambitions and, a victim of its own ambition, left me a little bewildered and disappointed.

    "A Page Turner"

    Whilst its definately a page turner that will have you listening way into the night its not my favourite Picoult book because I failed to relate to the main characters. I found Sage quite whiney but then she was in a difficult position.



    You think you know it all but you will be led up different paths before finally it all becomes clear. Well worth listening to but somewhat different to what we have come to expect from Jodi Picoult. The subject matter is difficult and an horrendous period in time which she deals with very well.



    The ending had to be a difficult one but I felt it to be the best we could expect.



    I loved listening to this book as the narrators really bought it to life, totally first class reading.

    "Moving, but predictable"

    The writing and narration were beautiful. Minka's retelling of her experiences of the Holocaust was heartbreaking and moving. Much of the rest was entirely predictable and cliched.

    "Good, but..."

    Being a great fan of Jodi Picoult, again, this book is excellent if somewhat terrifying, and like all others I have read by her, extremely well researched.
    However, I found the voice of Leo (Fred Berman) hugely distracting and irritating because of the sharp intake of breath before each sentence. The other narrators were good.

    From the beginning it hooks you. The characters are fascinating and I honestly felt I was missing them when I had to stop listening to the book inbetween opportunities to listen. I don't want it to end. Harrowing at times, addictive yes, beautiful throughout. Thank you JP!
