    What a great story. I thought it was going to be a light read/listen but it turns out not to be! Enjoyed every minute of it.

    Beautiful story! This is the second time I’ve listened to a book by this author and each time I’m captivated by the diverse viewpoints, the emotions of the characters, and the twists at the end. Although these are fictional characters, the author does a well done job of bringing all the complexities of real life histories to the table. I can’t wait to read the next one!

    Not my favourite Jodi Picoult, whose writing I normally love. I felt the ending was obvious from the middle of the book and then found myself just listening to prove myself right. Narration was excellent though.

  • Barbara O

    I was craving more Jodi Picoult after listening to Small Great Things. The Storyteller did not disappoint! It was beautifully written, story lines magically woven into a tapestry with rich characters. Truly a masterpiece treating a tragic moment in human history on a personal level. Awesome!

  • Karen B

    Elegant, poetic language, plot line disjointed and distracting. Too many tangents and characters. A gothic fairytale embedded in the re-telling of a tragic Holocaust story within a modern day romance, all kneaded together in some very delicious sounding pastries

  • Helen M

    Beautifully written, increadiby sad,but a must read. I love the way she weaved in and out the generations, but the ending was a lesson in it self.

  • Claudia S

    I really enjoyed this book. At first I was concerned because the book moves back-and-forth over several decades but it was very enjoyable and very suspenseful and with a surprising ending I thought the narrator did a good job.. Can definitely recommend this to others.

  • Jennifer Waugh

    I was so torn all the way through the book, I could not put it down.

  • SHIRLEY Wooten

    The writer brings words together to paint such a vivid picture. It was gut wrenching but I was unable to lay it down.

  • Jacquelyn Blue

    Fabulous and beautifully written book with terrific narrators. Put it on your wish list.
