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
    "Surprisingly good!"

    I hadn't read the summary since it was a book I picked as a buy four purchase. So imagine my surprise when it turns out so good. The story weaves you through the current life of the grand daughter of a concentration camp survivor, the grand mother, and the story the grand mother wrote. It took me some time to see where the story was going but the story itself and voice acting completely engulfed me. Every part of the story had purpose and drew me in slowly but surely. This isn't my usual type of book but, I really enjoyed it. And I really feel liked I learned something.

    Story
    "I hung on every word. Loved it!"

    The author painted the visuals and emotions in such a way, I clung to every word, every experience, set back and victory. Perfect voice for Minka, one that begged to be heard. A story with themes that still relate to todays social issues.

    "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!

    "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.

    Story
    "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.
