Publisher's Summary

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?

    "O.M.G. Awesome author."
    Where does The Storyteller rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is in the top three. I don't know how the author managed such a huge undertaking. I want to ask her if she's alright. And the narrators were brillian.


    What other book might you compare The Storyteller to and why?

    Sophie's Choice


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

    They made it real

    "Depressing!"

    UG, this is not what I expected, the ending is horrible, only good thing is the character development. Don't waste 11 hours listening to 50 chapters of this crap, I am a huge Jodi Piccoult fan and this was a big disappointment

    "Excellent historical Fiction"

    Captured my attention from the very beginning. Story had several plots that intertwined perfectly. In addition the ending was a surprise so slightly anticipated but a very good one that. An ending I wanted. Please read this book you won't be sorry.
    the narration was excellent.
    I come to love this author and plan on reading more of her work.

    Story
    "Morbidly depressing - I stopped half way through"
    Would you try another book from Jodi Picoult and/or the narrators?

    I found this story claustrophobic and overly depressing. None of Jodi Picoult's normal interludes of relief or magical human moments. When she started describing a mortician running needles into a corpse's jaw and out through its nose I turned the story off.

    Story
    "stories surrounding the holocaust can't be ignored"

    My grandfather's immediate family left Germany to protect his Jewish mother and German father. They fled to Argentina. I odd course am aware that German Nazi/SS also choose the same country to hide in after the war. My heart aches even during this story and the atrocities humans inflict on each other. I don't love the ending of the story...but I was moved over all.

    Story
    "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 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.

    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!

    "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.

    Even there's a lot of German language used in the book and pronounced well. I congratulate the narrators, they did an amazing job bringing this well-written novel to life.
