Reviews - What do customers think about The Complete Hans Christian Andersen Fairy Tales?

Fairy Tales  Nov 8, 2007
I bought this book and must admit to not paying attention to the typeset or quality of the paper. It didn't matter to me because I was still being transported away with the memories of the wonderful fairy tales from my childhood.

The book still serves its purpose, the tales are as wonderful and magical as I remember them, and I look forward to reading them out loud to my grandchildren. Better still, the format will still see them enjoying it in their adulthood as it does me.

It is good to see these stories have been kept alive and well preserved.

For the price, its been well worth it for me.
Andersen deserves better  Mar 10, 2007
It is just sad that publishers like this one are opportunistic and know that just because Andersen is on the cover the book will sell. The translations are rickety and unreadable. And the quality of the book is disappointing. I immediately resold mine and bought another, far superior, volume. Don't get taken for a ride.
This book is for adults as much as children  Oct 27, 2006
Hans Chrisitian Andersen's fairy tales are incomparable. They have a level of depth absent in any other collection of fairy tales including the Grimm Brothers, Arabian nights etc...He amalgmates magic and reality and seals them in beautiful poetic expression. You will feel pain and love, rejection and hope, despair and persistence. The characters and images are sad yet impeccable. The tales are vivaciously symbolic of your dreams and reality. My favorite tales are The Red Shoes and The Little Mermaid(which is way different from Disney's version). They are a must-read.
Not for kids  Jul 9, 2006
I first read HCA when I was about 8 and I remember being baffled at their deviation from the standard "fairy tale" formula. They stayed with me however.
I bought this edition because I wanted to explore more of his work and I am very glad I did. I have finished about 3/4ths of this volulme and the richness, satire, obersvation, depth, humor and relevance of the themes continue to awe me. It's not a book for children but for those adults who want to go on adventures with a master storyteller.
