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?

    Story
    "Definitely recommend this!"

    First, thank you Jodi Picoult for the multiple narrators who were all excellent readers! More authors should do this. It's much easier for the listener, in particular when there are several time lines and characters.

    This was my first Picoult listen and I was not disappointed. Excellent story, well written, interesting characters.

    Part of the story is about the Holocaust as well as the experience of Sage's grandmother, Minka, as a prisoner and survivor. I can listen to some graphic scenes with most fiction books because I know they're probably not true. But this subject is part of history and I believe things like this happened. The stories that are told were uncomfortable for me for that reason. But, again, this was well written so I was able to sit through it and it's only a portion of the book.

    The story is serious, yet there are times that are funny and made me laugh. While I didn't care for the story of the monster I understand how it fits in for Minka and her survival. I appreciate Leo's sense of humor - a little over the top and sometimes inappropriate, but that's fun.

    There is a question asked a couple of times, "How does it end?" (referring to the story).

    Story
    "Captivating, mesmerizing"

    This is a story of struggle in WW2 Nazi Germany written, and performed, in several voices. It is a story of unspeakable horror and of bravery & hope. The underlying story is a bit vague. That's ok because it is the tale of Josef, Minca, Daria & other victims of Nazi Germany that are the real story here.
    This is my first Jodi Picoult novel. I look forward to many more.
    In closing I would like to give a nod to the narrators. Using more than one reader is a stroke of genius. I hope others pick up on this idea as well. Best performance I've heard in a while.
    Thank you for the entertainment. It was well worth the time.

    "Moving"

    To those reviewers who wrote that the ending was foretold, I am incredulous that you would say such s thing. This intricate tale of love, betrayal, incredible courage, and forgiveness was never predictable. Nor is the ending. "How does it end?", Franz cries out. Jodi has left us to imagine.

    "Best Jodi Picoult Book Ever!"

    I loved this book. So many stories wrapped into one. The voices make the book I think. Use a credit! You won't regret it!!!

    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.

    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.
