Warm Farytale Fantasy


Uprooted was amazing. I went into it knowing that it was fairytale fantasy, what I didn't expect was for the protagonist, Agnieszka, to be so likeable. Her reactions and feelings were very believable and natural. This was in no small part due to the excellent narration by Julia Emelin. The book is written in 1st person and with Julia Emelin's warm voice and Eastern European accent, I felt like Agnieszka was sitting next to me in front of a fire, both of us with fresh baked bread and mugs of cocoa, telling me her story. I never had a problem becoming immersed in the audiobook.
