This German import only received one star, and honestly, I’m not sure anyone is talking about it.
But I think this is an unsung, unnoted gem, and everyone needs to get a copy STAT.
And then read the book before you read any more of this post, because here be spoilers, and they would really spoil things. I am so glad I did not know what I was getting myself into when I started this, and I would hate to ruin the visceral experience of the book for anyone else.
So, in case that wasn’t clear enough: click beyond this point ONLY if you’ve already read The Storyteller. Or if you know you’ll never ever read it. (But then you’d be missing out.)
