The Storyteller Customer Review -“Interesting… different than I thought it would be”
Based on the summary, I thought most of the story would be centered on Josef, however, it was more about Sage’s grandmother, , a victim and survivor of the Holocaust. I think I was looking forward to a more in depth exploration of a SS officer during and after the war, and that is the reason why I haven’t given this a 5. Having said this, it is a very good story with good narration. I really liked “My Sister’s Keeper” and did not like at all “Lone Wolf”, so Jodi Picoult books for me can be hit or miss. I guessed most of the ending, however, the book has made me think about the characters and what I liked and did not like about some of them, well after finishing the book. I would recommend this book to others.
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?
