THE STORYTELLER -- JODI PICOULT
Jodi Picoult is one of those few authors who deserve to be on every reader’s must-buy list. Her books often dip deliciously into multiple genres, blending them in unique narratives full of action, suspense and, most of all, heart. Her characters are always unforgettable. Picoult has a well-known and beloved penchant for writing about sensitive subjects, but her work is never emotionally manipulative. Instead, Picoult is masterful at weaving scientific, historic or legal topics into stories in which one can easily get lost. In The Storyteller
, Picoult somehow meshes all of these themes together. After all, racism can be compared to a cancer and (so far, at least,) it doesn’t get worse than the Holocaust. Religion and belief intertwine with that historic event. And in this novel, Picoult presents an unlikely friendship between a former SS soldier and a young Jewish woman – one in which he asks her to help him die. The Storyteller
is not divided into chapters, but into stories and the voices of their narrators. We become witnesses to Ania’s, Sage’s, Leo’s, Josef’s and, ultimately and most heartbreakingly, Minka’s stories. Minka’s story is clear and crisp in its joys and tragedies. The reader wonders instead about Franz and Reiner, the ones who wielded the guns and bayonets, something fresh and unique in a literary work covering the Holocaust.
