If you love the Little Mermaid then this is a good story for you! This book is a retelling of a mix between the Disney movie and the original, darker Hans Christian Anderson tale. Although I do think that it didn’t differ much from the actual stories. I haven’t read the original Anderson tale but from what I gather it seemed pretty close. I love anything mermaid so I think that is part of the reason I liked this book. This book also had a performing arts/Opera aspect to it, which I also love. Like I said this book felt like it was re-stating the original stories. Because I knew the story, I knew what was coming in the book. These characters were interesting to read about but I didn’t really feel connected to them. I was reading about their story not in it with them. I also didn’t get emotional while reading until the very end. All in all I enjoyed this book but I’m ready to start reading the next thing. Definitely read it if you are interested though!
