Surperb acting by Sri Gordon!!

Han's Christian Anderson's version is not the Disney version. Hans books are sometimes a bittersweet pill to swallow and therefore geared more towards adults than children. The little mermaid is no exception. After leaving her beautifully, scenic home for a prince she realizes the grass isn't always greener. This melancholy version is certainly not the happy ending Disney put out, but nevertheless still a beautiful classic.

Not your Disney version of the Little Mermaid

If you're looking for a cute quick listen for your little ones, this is not it. However, if you are looking for a more grown up version of the Little Mermaid, you've hit the jack pot.

I really enjoyed this listen of the Little Mermaid. It deals with everyday life and death events.

The narrator is did a superb job in narrating.

Great story. There should be a movie!

Disney has never done these old stories justice. This one ends a little bit more moralistically than it needed to, but it is a ripping good story. The narrator did a fantastic job. What are you waiting for?

Not Disney's Version!!

I hadn't ever heard the original story of The Little Mermaid. I must say, it was much darker than what I thought it would be. I figured it would have it's dark moments, even Disney showed that but oh my! This is really a sad story. I enjoyed listening to it and Sri Gordon did an excellent job with the narration. She has a lovely voice and really brought the story to life. If you're looking for Disney's version of The Little Mermaid, you won't find that here. This story is much darker and without the happy ending.

Wonderful Narration of a Classic

This is not the Disney happy ending but the original darker classic one. Probably not content for the really little kids but I think 3rd grade and up would be fine. I thought the narration was really well done and fun to listen to!

The Little Mermaid

Sri Gordon gave a wonderful performance of the classic Hans Christian Anderson tale. Be warned that this classic is darker than the happily ever after Disney version.

Nice Children's Book!

As other reviewers said, Hans Christian Anderson's story is darker than the Disney version. It also has a very different and not so happy ending. It is still a charming tale and you and your family will enjoy the original. It is nicely read by Sri Gordon. I was gifted a copy of the audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

Excellent telling of the classic

This is a beautifully read production of The Little Mermaid, great for putting kids to bed. It's a classic tale by Hans Christian Andersen that was well read in this production.

It's short, but well told, and an important classic fairy tale for kids. I recommend it.

Imaginative and Magical

This story of The Little Mermaid is a beautiful tale of a young mermaid princess and her love for the prince she rescued from a shipwreck. The audio version is well worth a listen just for the detailed descriptions of life under the sea. It's imaginative and magical. It's very different from the Disney version, and the two really can't be compared.

The narration was done well. Sri Gordon doesn't dramatize the story, she lets the listener interpret the emotions the author intended. She gave each character their own speaking voice, and immersed me in the story. It's a lovely quick listen.
