The Storyteller Jodi Picoult read online review & book description:

An astonishing novel about redemption and forgiveness from the “amazingly talented writer” (Huffington Post) and #1 New York Times bestselling author Jodi Picoult.

Some stories live forever . . .

Sage Singer is a baker. She works through the night, preparing the day’s breads and pastries, trying to escape a reality of loneliness, bad memories, and the shadow of her mother’s death. When Josef Weber, an elderly man in Sage’s grief support group, begins stopping by the bakery, they strike up an unlikely friendship. Despite their differences, they see in each other the hidden scars that others can’t.

Everything changes on the day that Josef confesses a long-buried and shame­ful secret and asks Sage for an extraordinary favor. If she says yes, she faces not only moral repercussions, but potentially legal ones as well. With the integrity of the closest friend she’s ever had clouded, Sage begins to question the assumptions and expectations she’s made about her life and her family. In this searingly honest novel, Jodi Picoult gracefully explores the lengths to which we will go in order to keep the past from dictating the future.

    I was so amazed at the stories from the grandmother then to find out that they were something that someone had actually gone through just amazed me. She is so dedicated to giving valid information in her books it makes reading them that much better.

    Multiple stories in one. The grandmother's, the story the grandmother writes, Sage's, Leo's, and the two brothers'. 6 different voices and perspectives, 2 completely different stories all blended so carefully and masterfully to make 3 different genres: Horror/Fantasy, Historical and Modern Romantic Mystery. Page turning, engrossing and thought provoking. Absolutely loved it.
  • Not like her other books

    I expected a classic Jodi book but was disappointed. The horror of the holocaust is not what I wanted in a book from her. Very disappointed.

    By far my favorite book of all time. Picoult captivates readers in a series of point of view changes and a forever changing story. This is the kind of book that when you finish, you sit back, and stare at a ceiling for 3 days. Insanely good.c
  • One of the best books I have ever read

    This book is the best book I have ever read on the holocaust. The way Jodi Picoult weaves the characters into the story and how they all become intertwined is absolutely amazing. You can't help but feel what Sage, the main character is going through. I kept asking myself, what would I do if I was Sage. I still don't have an answer.
