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?

    "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.

    I like novels, biographies and classics but not Crime, Thrillers, Sci-Fi, Fantasy etc and rarely buy non-fiction as an audio book.

    "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.

    "A mesmerising, gripping story told from the heart"

    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.
