An astonishing novel about redemption and forgiveness from #1 New York Times bestselling author Jodi Picoult. Sage Singer becomes friends with an old man who's particularly beloved in her community after they strike up a conversation at the bakery where she works. Josef Weber is everyone's favorite retired teacher and Little League coach. One day he asks Sage for a favor: to kill him. Shocked, Sage refuses…but then he tells her he deserves to die. Once he reveals his secret, Sage wonders if he's right. What do you do when evil lives next door? Can someone who's committed a truly heinous act ever redeem themselves with 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?

Jodi Picoult: The Storyteller

Van az a pont, mikor elfogy a szó, és elfogy a könny. Mert már nincs értelme. Csak megyünk, egyik láb, a másik után, fizikálisan irányított ösztön erőd, az agy és a szív lemarad, a porban hentereg. Agyonlőtték, megalázták. Nincs többé. A láb nem tudja miért megy. Erre programozták. A szív nem élheti túl, ami túlélhetetlen.
És a száj nem mondhatja el, ami elmondhatatlan… De Jodi Picoult, ahogy azt már tőle megszokhattuk, mégis megpróbálja… Nem is kevés sikerrel…

Jodi Picoult: The Storyteller

Az elején még tetszett a könyv, végig izgultam, hogy mi fog történni… de a végében csalódtam. A csavarra nem volt nehéz rájönni már jóval a vége előtt, a befejezéssel pedig egyáltalán nem értettem egyet.
Amikor Minka mesélt a koncentrációs táborról, azt éreztem, hogy mások már megírták ezt a sztorit (sőt, talán jobban is) – de lehet, hogy csak túl sok ilyen visszaemlékezést olvastam már.
Szeretem, ahogy Jodi Picoult ír, de az eddig olvasott könyvei közül nekem ez tetszett legkevésbé.

You can believe, for example, that a dead-end job is a career. You can blame your ugliness for keeping people at bay, when in reality you're crippled by the thought of letting another person close enough to potentially scar you even more deeply. You can tell yourself that it's safer to love someone who will never really love you back, because you can't lose someone you never had.

History isn't about dates and places and wars. It's about the people who fill the spaces between them.

Power isn't about doing something terrible to someone who's weaker than you, Reiner. It's having the strength to do something terrible, and choosing not to.

I don't know what it is about death that makes it so hard. I suppose it's the one-sided communication; the fact that we never get to ask our loved one if she suffered, if she is happy wherever she is now… if she is somewhere. It's the question mark that comes with death that we can't face, not the period.

The weapons an author has at her disposal are flawed. There are words that feel shapeless and overused. Love, for example. I could write the word love a thousand times and it would mean a thousand different things to different readers. What is the point of trying to put down on paper emotions that are too complex, too huge, too overwhelming to be confined by an alphabet?
Love isn't the only word that fails.
Hate does, too.

But if you seek forgiveness, doesn't that automatically mean you cannot be a monster? By definition, doesn't that desperation make you human again?

So you see, this is why I never told my story. If you lived through it, you already know there are no words that will ever come close to describing it. And if you didn't, you will never understand.
