Book Review: The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult

15753740

I used this book for the Treasure Hunt (a profession, a hobby you don’t have), Women Challenge, Goodreads 2013 Reading Challenge, and 52 Books in 52 Weeks.

Summary from Goodreads: Sage Singer befriends an old man who’s particularly beloved in her community. Josef Weber is everyone’s favorite retired teacher and Little League coach. They strike up a friendship at the bakery where Sage works. One day he asks Sage for a favor: to kill him. Shocked, Sage refuses… And then he confesses his darkest secret – he deserves to die, because he was a Nazi SS guard. Complicating the matter? Sage’s grandmother is a Holocaust survivor. What do you do when evil lives next door? Can someone who’s committed a truly heinous act ever atone for it with subsequent good behavior? Should you offer forgiveness to someone if you aren’t the party who was wronged? And most of all – if Sage even considers his request – is it murder, or justice?

Verdict: 4 out of 5 stars. I read this back in April and totally forgot to review it or add it to my “read” list even. So… I remember that it was good but not much else. 🙂

4-stars
