Listener Opinions

    " This is actually the first time I have read a non-disney version of The Little Mermaid. I have to say it was just gruesome enough and I really enjoyed it. I enjoyed the illustrations. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Olivia | 2/4/2014

    " I never knew the real, classic ending to this! Disney makes it so pretty, and so happy. Not Hans. Still a magical story though and I think the ending gives it the final push to making it so memorable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 2/2/2014

    " This is definitely not Disney; an hour to read out loud with wonderful details about life under water. Good for 6+ age group. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sharmin | 1/29/2014

    " I loved this Disney classic as a child! It's a great book, girls will especially love it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jacqui | 1/20/2014

    " This was my favourite book as a kid. Now I read it to my daughter and she loves it too. It's so weird because the ending is so tragic yet I couldn't get enough... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Megan | 1/5/2014

    " I give it a 5 for originality. It was nothing like the movie, but it was a Haunting little fairy-tale that can be a little scary for any child under the ages of 7 maybe. I still loved it though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 LÄ«ga | 12/31/2013

    " What can I say? It was a fairytale and I enjoyed it. It is quite different from the Disney version and there is no happily ever after. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rhin | 11/22/2013

    " I think I'm going to stick with the happy Disney Movie, rather than this book... Even though it can definitely be argued that it is not an unhappy ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alyssa | 11/20/2013

    " This version is completely different from the Disney story. It's really tragic, but very well written. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ðɑηηɑ | 10/8/2013

    " Tragic, sad, awfully beautiful tale. Hans Christian Andresen - a Childrens Author? Noo! Loved it :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maryfin | 9/30/2013

    " This story broke my heart and was uplifting at the same time. I find it hard to believe that it was written for children, but sometimes children can deal with more than people give them credit for. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emma | 8/15/2013

    " This was NOTHING like the Disney version. Much better! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicole | 7/13/2013

    " I never realized how true to the actual story Disney was. Obviously there was no flounder or Sebastian, but the core ideas of the story (except the ending) carried through into the movie. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 6/17/2013

    " I love this original story of the Little Mermaid, although I love the disney version I think I love this even more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ta N. | 6/12/2013

    " Forget Disney. This is a surprisingly deep story... everyone who's ever seen the moveie should read this version! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessi Collishaw | 6/9/2013

    " What a wonderful story. It's a shame she doesn't get a Disney fairy tail ending, but I think that's part of the original story's charm. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mloy | 4/14/2013

    " This is one of the most beautifully illustrated books I have ever been fortunate enough to own. I am already a big fan of this heartwarming story but the illustrations in this book is simply gorgeous. Quite possibly one of my favorite books in my collection! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Persnip Means | 2/6/2013

    " I think I got the one with the sugar-coated ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ira Bespalova | 1/18/2013

    " One of the favorite fairy tales of my childhood. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 John Yelverton | 12/4/2012

    " After having seen the movie, I thought I was going to die after I read the actual book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tasneem | 11/19/2012

    " I've always loved the little mermaid and I read this when I was learning how to swim. How I wished that I was like the mermaid, that I could find my prince. "
