    " This was a solid, enjoyable read for me. I did feel like it didn't reach its full potential, which is why I only rated it three stars. I really liked the world building in the beginning, but the story went downhill as soon as (view spoiler)[Lenia turned human. From that point on, the focus was entirely on the love triangle, and Prince Christopher was simply too boring and unlikeable for me to stay interested. (hide spoiler)] Both Lenia and Margrethe were much more interesting to me than the prince they were both supposed to be madly in love with. I don't regret the time I spent reading Mermaid, it just didn't leave me feeling satisfied. "

    " i really enjoyed this story. it was a fast read. but the other book was better, this one was more predictable. "

    " A great read! Flowed naturally. Loved the plot and storyline. Will be reading more from this author. "

    " This was an awesome twist on the original mermaid story. It kept most of the same elements but added so much more. It definitely tugs at your heart strings. "

    " I was 'eh' about the ending of this book, even though in the middle, I found myself frantically flipping pages to find out what happened. I enjoyed the ties back to 'The Little Mermaid' as well. I found myself on Team Lenia for most of the novel, despite her willingness to give up everything for love, including her tongue.... Margarethe just wasn't depicted to be as compelling a character as Lenia. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 George | 9/17/2013

    " Pretty good twist on the tale! not the best writing in the world, but it kept my attention for the most part. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessie E. Meyer | 8/22/2013

    " When a friend recommended Mermaid, I was promised a gritty, dark, adult retelling of Anderson's tale. What I got was another sappy, overly romanticized young-adult novel. Not the worst of them, but certainly not enough to stand out from its many peers, Turgeon's retelling suffers heavily from forced, saccharine relationships -- specifically that of the mermaid and the princess -- and the overuse of words I'm sure the author had learned just before picking up her pen. If I never hear the word "ephemera" again it will be too soon, and I'll get back to you if I ever figure out why Turgeon thought it was a good idea to consistently describe the prince's eyes as being "the color of weeds". "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jenny | 8/14/2013

    " Well I liked this retelling and the idea to get to know the princess as well as the mermaid, but I did not like the liberties the author took for the ending. Plus I just struggled to get through it, and that never bodes well for my overall opinion. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth | 8/5/2013

    " 3.5. Very different from what I expected. I was shocked by some of the decisions made by the characters in the book. An interesting twist to "The Little Mermaid" story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carrie | 7/20/2013

    " Fairy tale princessy with a moral dilemma. Enjoyed it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Manda A | 5/17/2013

    " It started to get really good and I really enjoyed it. But I have to say the very ending felt a bit rushed. Still a good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 5/13/2013

    " An intriguing retelling of the women behind the story of The Little Mermaid, fleshed out with their lives as they meet and separate yet remain a part of each other, with the man that is in the center of them. It keeps you wondering how it will all turn out. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jillian | 10/8/2012

    " Too many holes in the plot, nothing added up! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary Henry | 11/24/2011

    " I was a sucker for the beautiful cover. The story was inventive and original, but lacked some serious substance. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elisa | 6/2/2010

    " This was a great interpretation to the fairy tale of the Little Mermaid. I also loved that it was a more adult story with adult the es making the characters very compelling. "

    " gothic love triangle heartwrenching mermaid sass... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Foggygirl | 7/12/2006

    " The potential was there but the story missed the mark. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly Remmert | 11/24/2002

    " It was a good read, didnt really get my attention till late in the middle to end of the book, slow going. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meagan | 9/5/2002

    " i loved the story but her writing isnt very fine tuned and sometimes the way she phrases things is annoying. but over all the book was amazing. cant wait til the movie comes out "
