Publisher's Summary

Audible's 2014 Narrator of the Year Julia Whelan performs one of Hans Christian Andersen's most beloved fairy tales, The Snow Queen. This classic tale is a fantastical fable of two dear friends - one of whom goes astray and is literally lost to the north woods, while the other undertakes an epic journey to rescue him. This charming, strange, and wonderful story is a timeless allegory about growing up and the challenges of staying true to one's self, and it served as the wintry inspiration for the blockbuster hit Frozen.

    "not so great stories but excellent narration"

    Maybe something was lost in translating these short, connected stories from their original Danish, but they are disjointed and really aren't very fun. However, the narration is excellent. I doubt this would be entertaining for children, too dark, and not very magical.

    "Boring"

    Ugh, this book was only an hour but it felt like an eternity. they claim this is the inspiration for Frozen but I'm not sure where they found that story in this one. I typically like fairy tales but this but bored the crap out of me. The narration was ok.

    "sweet but different"

    I ended up loving the way this book was written although it is 180 degrees from the style I'm used to. if it hadn't been written in such bizarre prose, the review would have not been so high. the narrator was excellent.

    "Wonderful to rediscover"

    This tale is not one that I read as a child. However, it takes me right back to when everything was Full of wonder, beauty and magic. The performance is wonderful and the depth of the story will not disappoint even the most ardent of Hans Christian Andersen's fans. Most highly recommended.

    "Good Christmas story"

    I would have given this a lower review, because the story really wasn't great in my opinion, but hey, I read it at Christmas, and for me, that's when I'm the least picky about what I read. Anyway, my mane problem with this was the narrator. She is ok, but I really don't love here, and I'm not excited when I see her as narrator of books.

    "Classic fairytale for Xmas"
    Would you listen to The Snow Queen again? Why?

    Yes, it's an easy listen and something the whole family could listen to.


    Any additional comments?

    Classic fairy tale suitable for the whole family. An evil mirror breaks and a small piece enters a boy's heart making him run away with the snow queen. Loving friend sets out to find him with the help of talking crows and a princess. Very festive for the time of year. The MD of Audible introduces the tale with a thank you for being a customer, but Audible search facility needs improving as I only found this free gift via a helpful person posting search tips on the Internet.
