Excellent story

Loved this book so much - especially the many perspectives of forgiveness, guilt, and grief.
Great characters and the audio book was so well read.

Drawn out

As usual Ms Picoult 's story is well researched and interesting. She draws it out so long that it becomes a chore to get to the end. The analogies were great. The twist in the end was not suspected. Speed up the time as you listen to it!

Great book!!!

This book was great right from beginning to end!! It was so ray to get lost in the various lives of the characters!!!the different narrators made the characters come alive. I've always loved history especially WW2.

Not what I expect but so much more!

This book was exceptional. When I read the brief summary I only thought that it should be interesting. This story had me reeling through all my emotions. Ms. Picoult is such a great descriptive writer that I thought I was there in many of scenes described

Great Listen!

Just enough twists to keep you interested but not enough to make it implausible. A great story teller telling a great story! Picoult has won a new fan here.

Another Excellent Jodi Picoult Novel!

Excellent Narration brought this story to life and makes you feel like you are in the moment. You will catch yourself smiling, grinding your teeth in anger, making faces of disgust, but most importantly you will ponder the meaning of love,compassion and forgiveness. I highly recommend this book. 5 stars all the way.

Bipolar or Two different narrators?

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I am about half way through trying to decided whether I want to move on to another book. The story line is okay but I wouldn't recommend this audio version to someone.

Would you be willing to try another book from Jodi Picoult? Why or why not?

Yes, I would be willing to try another one of her books.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Twice now, the voice of the narrator will change and suddenly it is another voice reading an entirely different story.

Could you see The Storyteller being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

The story started out pretty slow. I am just now getting interested in it.

Any additional comments?

I am sure this is a decent book. Like mentioned above, pretty slow but obviously this is a bad narration since another book hops in periodically. Because I am cheap, I will probably continue to listen just because I want my money's worth. <br/>

Jodi always delivers...

And this book is no exception! The performance only enhances the story line. GREAT!! A must for any audible member!

Too predictable

While the performance is phenomenal, the story is very predictable. I enjoyed the book and was deeply disturbed by the stories of the Holocaust. It was riveting. Not an easy listen/read because of this. I wish the story overall had not been so predictable in the end.
