Somewhere Enchanted is an incredible book that is beautifully narrated with an expressive and emotive writing style that is delivered with a mellow tone, making it easy to follow the story and trust the narrator.
J.F.T.’s Somewhere Enchanted tells a mesmerizing tale of a man whose love for his people makes him do the unexpected just to see those he cared about live comfortably. We follow Grettos, an intriguing main characters in the story, in his quest to look for more living space for his village and its declining people that are in trouble due to overpopulation. What I admired about the man was his will to do right by his people, sometimes by sheer force of will, even willing to break village rules and possibly sacrifice himself.
The forest is a forbidden area and is portrayed with a mysterious undertone that never really left me. Danger and risk loom, but does that stop Grettos? There is the fear of the unknown that always lingers throughout the story. His determination and persistence made him a wonderfully heroic character in this intrepid story where danger and risk are ever present. The narrator did an amazing job developing dynamic characters that are consistently intriguing. One could feel the difference in the narrators voice and tone when speaking about different characters and their roles. Somewhere Enchanted is a thrilling and adventurous story that is easy to follow. I recommend the book to fantasy enthusiasts who enjoy audio books that get begin quickly and are superbly narrated.
