Simply Magical!

I picked up this book not knowing what to expect, mind opened. The story and setting is minimalist, which allows the reader to enjoy the simple things in a deeper way. Upon reading, the story grabbed me and pulled me in, in a personal way. It’s highly relatable and magical, and teaches fundamental lessons of loving kindness, compassion and gratitude.

From the book: “I look around my apartment at the bed, the lamps, the chairs and sofa, the stove and refrigerator—all of it was simply an idea in someone’s head that was created. Everything I use was just a thought in someone’s mind at some point, and they took steps to will it into reality. And I’m the faceless benefactor that is blessed by their effort. They did this for me…

What’s the difference between today and any other morning? And that’s when it hits me. What’s different is my mind. Because my story is different, my situation is different.”

Both the book and author are making a difference in this world.

Fundamental (but fun to read) message

Korrol’s story of Michael and Jeannie shows us a universal piece of ourselves—our storyteller. He has created an incredibly relatable character in Michael, who draws you into the stories that he tells himself and shows you just how easily it is to get lost in your own head. As the character awoke from his own daydreams, so did I along with him, without even realizing I had done so, until Jeannie woke us up, together.

Much in the way Coelho’s story of The Alchemist teaches, “when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it,” The Gifted Storyteller imparts one of the greatest lessons you can learn—how you shape your own reality. In other words, “…how you choose to see a situation can make it beautiful, or miserable. There are always many choices..You’re literally inventing your life, and creating reality based on your focus and actions.”

The Gifted Storyteller is one of the best books I’ve read in years. Personally I really connected to Michael. I could relate to his struggles. This book has helped me understand myself a lot better. It’s one of those books you start reading and don’t stop till its finished. My favorite quote from the book “When your intentions are clear, when you are present, and you have faith, the universe responds with what you need.

Insightful book!

I absolutely loved this book! Very thought provoking, simple and easy read, filled with many insights that I can apply to my daily life. The author, Gregg, does a great job telling a story that is easily relatable and entertaining! Often times, we get stuck in our own heads and make up a story/meaning about an event or a person. After reading each chapter, I found myself being more aware in my daily life and reflecting on my own thoughts. There are no coincidences and we are always guided. This book and story served as such a great reminder for me!

A beautiful story that is a simple read and a page turner. It reminded me of the simple truths my step mom shared with me when I was younger.

A Gifted Storyteller made me think. So many people are not making the most of what they are given and complicate their lives by not following this simple plan. Much easier said than done. This is an nicely written, easy read with an inspirational message, particularly for young people. Thanks, Gregg Korrol, for delivering an important reminder for all of us.

This story is comforting, inviting open-mindedness and options, even in grief. For this, Mr. Korrol exhibits a real talent in his storytelling. This novel gently reminds the reader that one may participate in every moment, rather than watch moments unfold, or judge them. Looking forward to the next book!

Really Excellent!

“Really enjoying reading your book, Gregg. Really excellent.❤

A Unique Story!

“A unique story! Very thought provoking and captures a process of one’s self awareness, as well as the inner strength, power and courage that we encompass. It also serves as wonderful and bright story of working through grief and loss.”
– Sandra Goldberg, LCSW-R

“Perhaps everything you see was given for you to enjoy at that moment; you just have to be present to see it.”

The gifted storyteller tackles universal experiences of grief and relationships, but on a scale that challenges your own perceptions on the meaning of existence. It’s an informal fable that echoes the importance of connection with yourself and the world around you, in a setting which reflects the modern individual. The mirror it holds up, both metaphorically and literally in the story, is like a window through thousands of years of shared history, psychology and theology, woven together in a modern tale that most readers will be able to related to.
Michael’s voice is just like your own internal monologue, his lessons are all of ours to learn.

“Gregg Korrol’s inspiring story left me reflecting on my life and the many times I wrote my own story about what I thought was going to happen or who I thought someone would be instead of simply letting life unfold and discovering—and enjoying—the real truth, the real story!”

Can’t Put it Down!

“It’s 3am.  I can’t stop reading.  I tried. I’ll sleep tomorrow. Have you’ve ever gotten caught up in a book you just can’t put down?”

Say Goodbye to Old Messages!

“…a thought provoking novel about a journey of self exploration.The story begins by meeting Michael and “listening “to his thoughts as he enters a bar hopeful about the prospect of meeting that special someone.How often we look forward to this exciting new experience only to be sidetracked by the voice within. This captivating story introduces Jeannie,a feisty and insightful character who artfully moves us to recognize the “Genie “within!
A must read for all ages as we recognize the untapped power we have to create a new story and say goodbye to the old messages that do not work for us any longer.”
-Natalie K., Educator
