The Best Story-Tellers Fiction

Robin M. Yarbrough "I know good books!"
The list author says: "Sometimes it's not genre that matters - it's that story-tellers voice in your ear telling you such a story about such compelling people/places/times that you are drawn in, captivated and swept away. These are the books I have a hard time "coming out of" when I'm done - I still live with these characters, in these places for days after. And these are the ones I read over and over and over....."
A Prayer for Owen Meany
A Prayer for Owen Meany
"Hands down the best book I've ever read ~ a MUST read."
The Time Traveler's Wife: Unabridged Edition
The Time Traveler's Wife: Unabridged Edition
"What. a. story!  Zoomed right up to my second most favorite book EVER (sorry, The Stand).  Who can resist time travel - especially couched in a non scifi-ish story."
The Stand: Expanded Edition: For the First Time Complete and Uncut (Signet)
The Stand: Expanded Edition: For the First Time Complete and Uncut (Signet)
"The best of Stephen King ~ the best of story-telling.  The ultimate good vs. evil/ end times story."
The Other
The Other
"Disturbing ~ I find something new every time I read it.  It's a good twin/bad twin with a twist - still just not sure exactly what the twist is.  Do not rely on the movie - nowhere near as good as this book.  And Thomas Tryon is a great 'with a twist' writer."
Run with the Horsemen (Penguin Contemporary American Fiction Series)
Run with the Horsemen (Penguin Contemporary American Fiction Series)
"What an incredible story-teller ~ first in a trilogy.  A young man's coming-of-age story - but it's really the characters and the story-teller's rendering of them that matters."
The Whisper of the River
The Whisper of the River
"Still an incredible story-teller ~ second in the series."
When All the World Was Young (Contemporary American Fiction)
When All the World Was Young (Contemporary American Fiction)
"Sadly, the last in the series."
Odd Thomas: An Odd Thomas Novel
Odd Thomas: An Odd Thomas Novel
"I love Odd Thomas. I'm not sure if I want to mother him or marry him - I just want to be around him."
At Home in Mitford (The Mitford Years, Book 1)
At Home in Mitford (The Mitford Years, Book 1)
"A wonderful story-teller ~ a delight  and a relief.  This is what some folks call "gentle fiction". I called it wonderful.  The whole Mitford series is to be relished."
A Time to Kill
A Time to Kill
"The best of John Grisham.  The later stuff got kind of repetitive, but this one shone."
The Five People You Meet In Heaven
The Five People You Meet In Heaven
"Incredibly moving & thought provoking about the impact we all have on the world. This one was a WOW."
Water for Elephants: A Novel
Water for Elephants: A Novel
"Another good story-teller - what an entertaining, touching, and darn-it down right informative story.  Who knew the every day ops of the circus could be so entertaining?"
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
"One of the most compelling protagonists since Owen Meany.  It deals with autism in the context of a great story with a great story-tellers voice.  I loved him."
The Thirteenth Tale
The Thirteenth Tale
"Her first book - I want her to write 200 more - right now!  It started off like Daphne du Maurier and ended quite unlike Daphne Du Marier.  Another Tryon-like twist at the end."
The Girls: A Novel
The Girls: A Novel
"I loved, loved, loved The Girls...really.  I cried when the book was over and I had to leave them.  And it's written from the perspective of each of 'the girls' (conjoined twins Rose and Ruby) so you get two distinct story-tellers.  Amazing, touching, heartbreakingly wonderful."
Imaginary Jesus
Imaginary Jesus
"This was an eye-opening book told in the most inventive and entertaining way!  It's about how removed our perception of Jesus is vs the Jesus of the Bible. And it's told by an excellent story-teller!"
