The story started very slow, and the different narrators made it in the beginning difficult to get tje story line....but when nanna started her telling her story....it was here where I could not put it down...love the narrator.

Excellent Read

Loved this book. I was captivated throughout and emotionally connected to the story and it's characters. There were a few narrators which were all excellent, and which made this possibly my best audio book yet.

Such a moving story

What did you like most about The Storyteller?

The story was well told and the historical aspects were very moving indeed. It gave such a tangible experience of the World War II events.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Storyteller?

Grandma's experiences in the concentration camp

What three words best describe the narrators’s voice?

Well there were several narrators and it was extremely annoying that the narrator for the German characters was obviously unable to pronounce German. He was very poorly chosen.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

History runs deep in our blood

Any additional comments?

One of my favorite Jodie Picoult stories.

What a journey!

Jodi Picoult delivers again. Weaving story within story within story - what a genius. Brilliantly researched and written, digging deep into psyches of her characters and tackling one of the most abhorrent times in history with unusual compassion.

Very powerful and well researched

I almost didn't finish this book a few times owing to me being a bit confused as to which story I was listening to. It all made sense in the end. It is very long and one needs to concentrate. It was quite depressing at times too. There were lighter moments - but the grandmother-her story and narration were exceptional.

Superb

This is equally brilliant and sad . A torrid recount of the holocaust. I would definitely recommend.

Excellent- couldn't put it down.

Some shocking descriptions made it not for bed time reading and the ending was totally unexpected.

Riveting

Listening to this audiobook caused so many emotions. It felt like I could feel the pain of some of the characters mixed with my own dread of how those who were in the camp must have felt. I would wake up in the middle of the night with my first thought being how did people survive, how did they manage to continue hoping and believing? Absolutely brilliant - from the intertwined story to the unexpected outcome at the end.

second time I listened to this

I started not remembering I had read it. But I can't say ienjoyed as this is tragic story. I was locked in again.
not many books can do that to me. I'm glad it's finished again.
what a story. Stick with it. Great twist attend end.

Heart Wrenching Story

This story was slow to start but when it did start it was difficult to stop listening. It really effected me deeply as parts are someone’s true story of the Holocaust. At points I stirred me to tears, as I thoughts of those, even now are going through such experiences.
The book is beautifully written and narrated and the characters are well portrayed, each with their own complexities and depth.
I truly recommend this book, but beware it can challenge you on a very deep emotional and mental level. So listen to it when you are feeling robust in yourself.

Excellent

Fantastic book. Excellent narration. Heartbreaking and really made you think about the atrocities that took place from a different point of view.
