The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult is a book that I read recently and have been recommending to everyone I know. What a book!
It tugs at the heart as the author takes us through the lives of the characters. I loved Minka, a resilient woman who has been through hardships and survived them with her mental strength. It is very well researched about the Holocaust. I found the writing intense and kept getting emotional at many points.
Sage Singer is a baker who is dealing with her personal demons. She has befriended an old man named Josef at a therapy group, who was a Nazi and at the same time she learns that her grandmother is a camp survivor. In an effort to handover Josef to the police, she learns more about his past, and that of her grandmother, Minka. The ending was awesome with an “I didn’t see that coming” twist to it.
I only felt that the piece about Josef and Minka as old people revealing their pasts could have been more detailed. But that could be because I personally couldn’t get enough.
This one is definitely worth a read.
