Publisher's Summary

One of the most famous fairy tales of all time, The Little Mermaid was written by Danish author Hans Christian Andersen and published in 1837. The littlest mermaid of the Sea King ventures to the surface of the ocean on her 15th birthday and falls in love with a handsome human prince whom she sees sailing on his vast ship. As her heart has been captured by this young royal, she endures great sacrifice and pain in order to be with the man she loves. Not a typical fairy tale as seen on the big screen but one with a heart-filled story of love and loss.

    "Good audiobook"
    Would you listen to The Little Mermaid again? Why?

    I would listen to the story again, it was an original reading.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Little Mermaid?

    The end of the story was very tragic.


    Have you listened to any of Andrea Emmes’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No,I haven't, but the narrowing matches the storyline.


    Any additional comments?

    "Classic and Well Read"

    The original, classic story of the Little Mermaid. In this original story the little mermaid was not only looking for love, but was looking for an eternal soul. I had read it years ago, but had forgotten some of the story line. This is not Disney! I absolutely loved it, but what made it great was the narration. The narrator truly brought this story to life. The prosody and flow of the reading was superb, and she had me spellbound. In my opinion, everyone should listen to his story.

    This book was provided to me at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review.

    "The real story behind Ariel"

    Being a huge Disney fan it is always amazing to hear the real story behind the Disney one. The old tales were always darker (obviously) than the Disney ones and I find they make a great companion to the story. It's interesting to see what is kept, lost, and changed.

    "wow! good but not the fully disney story."

    wow, not the disney version.

    This is a great story, though I do not believe it is one for small children. its not all sunshine and roses. Beautifully told. and short. only 53 minutes. I do wish it was longer. it was told so well. I now know where Disney kind of got their idea
