The Fairy Tree by Domien de Groot is an interesting tale that places the listener directly into the story of a magical world complete with fighting trolls, fairies and other magical creatures. It is up to the listener to choose their own fate or one may let the story flow naturally. Either way, the choices the listener makes creates several different outcome possibilities while also making the adventure fresh.
This is not a simple narration, it is a professional performance. Complete with music, sound effects and multiple actors. It is well done. The story lines and characters are magical becoming fierce when necessary and soft-spoken when appropriate.
As the listener you are given time to choose which path you are going to take; however, I found the pause to be too long for me since I let the book take the straight path. If I were going to choose, it would have been the right amount of pause.
The production quality was very well done, however, I did find there were times when some actors did not speak loud enough or the music would overwhelm the dialog. The story line was an interesting one but not one that is unique and is reminiscent of other fantasy and magical worlds. For me, in my opinion, this was not a favorite book of mine simply because I don’t like to choose the path type books, I like things laid out for me – I want to hear the story through the voice of the author and follow his path beginning to end.
This is a book for those who enjoy performances, fantasy worlds of magical beings and interactive content.
