I enjoyed "The Storyteller" very much as I was fascinated by the changing relationship between Sage and Josef. I had never finished a book by Jodi Picoult before as I find her style a little tedious, but one of my friends highly recommended it so I tried it. The twists in the plot kept me interested, and I could tell that the book was well researched and thought out. I gave it 3 out of 4 stars because it was a very good read; however I found some of the descriptive passages to be a bit longwinded and boring.

I enjoyed it the written work is extremely solid and it unquestionably established a connection at the forefront of my thoughts. I think it come at a decent time for the world to think back and gain from the past that we ought not deliberately ignore to abuse, be it religious or something else. I give it a 3 out of 4 stars.
Live Life to the Fullest and Enjoy Reading!!

I've read many Jodi Piccoult books and enjoyed them all. The Storyteller was no different, I couldn't put the book down and really enjoyed it. I rate it a 3/4 and would recommend it to everyone. It is definitely worth the read.

I love Jodi Picoult's writing. She's very talented and you can tell she's experienced. Her books always make me cry and they are very powerful, they can make you have to take a step back and see two different perspectives of one story.
This book is more graphic and can be disturbing, but as it should be. This book is great.

I enjoyed this book, and have recommended it to friends. Jodi Picoult is not my favorite author but I have enjoyed a few of her books.
Anyone who says they have only one life to live must not know how to read a book.
