The Storyteller Book Summary

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.

The Storyteller - Jodi Picoult Book Reviews

  • Once again, a riveting story told by a master storyteller (Pim50)

    Just having finished The Storyteller, I’m wondering if there’s another book of Jodi’s to read. I think I’ve read them all. I’ll be waiting anxiously for her next book
  • Must read! (Bunmom88)

    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.
  • Compelling reading (larsons45)

    Truly enjoyed reading this compelling book. I was captivated from the begin. The story teller won’t disappoint the reader.
  • Great blending (SandeeLou)

    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 (Jack_466)

    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.
  • One of my favs (Emily-IN)

    Such a good book kept me wanting to read more all the way to the end!
  • stellar read (👏😊☺😉😝😛😝)

    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 (HaloDoc)

    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.
  • Wow (Sueballs)

    The Storyteller. Fabulous book. I could not put it down. I bought it by accident when I hit the wrong button, but I am so glad I did! Now I want to get other books from this author.

    Another winner. Picoult always manages to keep my interest. Her characters are well developed and there is always a meaty ethical dilemma to consider. Although I saw this plot twist well before it was revealed, the story still held my interest.

    The Storyteller. I've never taken the time to actually write a review before, but this story was impossible to put down. It sucked me in and made me feel as if I were actually there in the pages. Jodi Picoult is truly a wonderful "storyteller"! I loved it and it will haunt me for a long time. A great read!

    Outstanding. Picoult has outdone herself with this book. I have read all of her books and this one, by far, is the best.

    Surprisingly good. I must admit I am not a great fan of this author. I usually get a bit bored with her writing. However I purchased this book intrigued by the premise of forgiveness posed by Wiesenthal. And because of the reviews. So I offer my own agreement that it is hard to put down. I enjoyed the characters and the insight into how someone becomes a monster. The journey through the stages of isolation of the Jews and the interaction of the women as they struggled to survive was poetic. The ending...well done.

    Long. Following 3 different story lines was a bit much. Very long and drawn out.
