For nearly ten years, young Oliver has begrudgingly accepted his position as the flute player of the peaceful village of Drommar—a responsibility thrust upon him after the previous flute player, and Oliver's best friend, drowned in a tragic childhood accident.
Now on the cusp of adulthood, a mysterious young woman enters Oliver's life, and he begins to question the nature of his world and the importance of his place in it.
My Review:I received a copy of The Flute Player for an honest review.
Wow The Flute Player was totally not what I was expecting at all. Shawn Mihalik did an amazing job writing this story.
Oliver is living the life his best friend is supposed to have, but his best friend died and for the last ten years Oliver has been playing the flute for the town twice a day. He doesn’t really enjoy his life until he comes across something that changes everything, a girl, one who knows nothing about how she got to Oliver’s home or how to get back.
All in all while I wasn’t in love with the book the idea behind The Flute Player was genius and executed amazingly. Great short story that I would highly recommend this book!
