The Woodcutter

The Woodcutter - Kate Danley, Sarah Coomes When I first started this book I loved it. The idea of the Woodcutter as the main character and a mix of fairy tales that are going wrong? Sounds good, right! And I like the character of the Woodcutter himself.

Somewhere along the way I started to lose interest though. I don't know whether this was due to the story or the narrator of the audio book. I still wanted to see how the story would go, still kept me at least a little interested, but I was good and ready for the book to end when it did.

I am not really familiar with audio books, having only listened to a couple before this, so I'm finding it difficult to say whether the narrator is doing a great job. To me she sounded... overly enthusiastic? I'm not sure, but for all I know that is a sign of a great narrator! It did kinda fit with the story being a fairy tale, drama seems appropriate. But in the long run it got a bit much for me personally.

Would recommend the book if you like a new twist to old fairy tales! :)
