Sage Singer has a past that makes her want to hide from the world. Sleeping by day and working in a bakery by night, she kneads her emotion into the beautiful bread she bakes.

But when she strikes up an unlikely friendship with Josef Weber, a quiet man old enough to be her grandfather, and respected pillar of the community, she feels that finally, she may have found someone she can open up to.

Until Josef tells her the evil secret he's kept for sixty years.

Caught between Josef's search for redemption and her shattered illusions, Sage turns to her family history and her own life for answers. As she uncovers the truth from the darkest horrors of war, she must follow a twisting trail between betrayal and forgiveness, love and revenge. And ask herself the most difficult question she has ever faced – can murder ever be justice? Or mercy?

One of Jodi Picoult’s best books.

 on 15 February 2017
By JJ
I’ve read a number of Jodi Picoult books over the years, I have to admit that some of her books are forgettable whilst others stay with you for years after you’ve read them. The Storyteller is one of those books that isn’t easy to forget. It tell the story of Sage, who lives a lonely sheltered life after the death of her mother who discovers that one of the few people that she has allowed into her life claims to be a former high ranking SS official.

a good book club read as there is so much to …

I’ve read a lot of books about the holocaust and every book leaves me in tears, this one however had me sobbing at the half way point. Jodi Picoult has a way of making you feel empathy for every single character, she draws you in completely and doesn’t let you go until the last word. Very well researched, a good book club read as there is so much to discuss. A very good book on a very sad subject.

Moving, emotional – wonderfully written

 on 7 February 2016

To be honest, I didn’t know much about this book before I started to read it other than its was about a young girl who had suffered a family tragedy in the loss of her mother and to cope hid away in her job. Then an old man who is well known and respected locally stops by the bakery and they strike up a friendship, but he is hiding a secret from the world as an ex SS Nazi officer. Intrigued, I started to read and literally couldn’t put it down. The story takes the reader through the eyes of the SS Officer and his childhood and what it was like to grow up under the Hitler regime. The terrible, inhumane treatment her grandmother suffers as a Jew had me in tears and I was in awe at her ability to survive. The underlying thread of baking bread and its importance through the story was genius as was the ending!!

Heartbreakingly unforgettable

 on 7 July 2018
By Midge
This quotation from the final pages of this novel (and I’m not giving the story away here) says it all, “like a postmodern canvas. If you end your story, it’s a static work of art, a finite circle. But if you don’t, it belongs to anyone’s imagination. It stays alive forever.”. I can honestly say this is a story which will stay with me forever. I take my hat off to you Jodi and salute you. I have studied literature at third level and post-modernism has always left me a little baffled, but now I get it! The final outcome did not surprise me, I had suspected it in advance. Regardless, this is a story of multiple, complex layers yet simplistic in its depiction of humanity and the basic decency which we all hope will always overcome evil. A potent and timely reminder in view of the recent resurgence of nationalism and anti-immigration policies worldwide.

Review from Goodreads 31/3/14

Jodi Picoult is the bestselling author of numerous novels, with My Sister’s Keeper being the most well known, perhaps. All of her stories are well written although it is still possible to notice improvements in the writing over the years right up until now with her latest, The Storyteller, which quite possibly could be her best yet.

Loved it!

This was the first Jodi picoult book I read and I thought it was fantastic and thought provoking. I found myself wondering about my own moral compass and how I would feel in relation to sage’s new friend.

Excellent storytelling

 on 30 May 2014
By J Hutch
Judy Picoult certainly excels at storytelling in part2 of this novel – here Minka tells the heartbreaking story of her life in ghettos and nazi extermination camps for Jews. But she adds ‘If you lived through it you already know that there are no words that could even come close to describing it.’ It was so well written I found it emotionally stressful to read, and cried at the end of Minka’s story. She says ‘Sometimes all it takes to become a human being again is someone who can see you that way, no matter how you present on the surface’, which makes you realise that the Jews were treated so inhumanly that they appeared to forget they were human.

Fantastic read……the history of the holocaust comes alive and the main characters will have you rooting for them for sure ; )

The characters in this book are so rich and full of depth it is easy to empathise with them all the way through their memories. A book full of history from the holocaust and it is extremely well told. It is full of detail and the research done on the subject was very well done. The characters come alive and almost jump from the page to a point where i could visualise them in my minds eye down to the smallest detail, a sign of a good author (story teller lol)I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it most highly. Jodi Picoult at her very best. It is a few years since i have read any of her books, i must admi,t but this tale has piqued my interest once again in her work and made me want to explore other books she has written in the years since i stopped actively searching for her new releases………………….

Amazing depth and substance; harrowing but riveting.

 on 11 November 2014
By Dave
It’s very apt that I’ve finished reading this book on Armistice Day; an anniversary to remember the lives sacrificed for the horrors of war. This is the second Jodi Picoult novel I’ve read – My Sister’s Keeper was the first, which I loved – and one thing I love about her work is the sheer amount of detail and research that’s given to the plotline’s subject matter. My favourite portion of this book is Minka’s recount of her experience in a Nazi concentration camp, which is as harrowing as it is riveting. We feel her pain right through from being a normal girl from a Jewish family to a prisoner within the Third Reich’s brutal, tragic regime.

Unputdownable…

 on 18 January 2014
By Patricia Davison
Unputdownable. The Storteller did not grab me in the first paragraphs..nor until I’d actually progressed well toward Part Two and Minkas tale. In the beginning I did not warm to the main first character, Sage (in fact did not really warm to her at all throughout the book). I also didn’t like the interwoven tale of the Upior (vampire) at all…It did not interest me in the least to seek the similarities between the characters in this drawn out tale (albeit a very relevant presence in the book) and place them alongside Sage, Josef and his brother and Minka and draw parallels. What I did find utterly remarkable about this book was the brutal clarity of Minka’s story; the thought provoking questions of “could/would I be able to kill to avenge others/another” and the age old dilemma of trying to understand the art/gift of forgiveness. I am not going to write a synopsis of the Storyteller… I couldn’t do the authors wonderful writing style and clarity any justice. What I would say though is to read this brilliant book and draw your own conclusions from the words in it…they are powerful and sad, hopeful and mysterious…as complicated as humanity is I guess. A thoroughly good read.
