    These stories make me cry Grimm s fairy tales are cautionary fables These are tiny little slices of tragic reality, dressed up in doll s clothing or hidden behind animal masks Check out The Steadfast Tin Soldier, The Ugly Duckling, and The Little Match Girl Devastating.

    I m not going to lie this was a bit of a slog Some of the stories are very good typically the famous ones, like the Little Mermaid, or the Emperor s New Clothes Many others dragged on, and were too moral for me eg a little girl loves wearing red shoes, so she is punished for her vanity.Would not recommend especially not this 1000 page anthology I d never have gotten through it without some back to back flights.

    What s left after finishing this collection is a memory of beautifully described nature, of quircky characters all struggling with being in whatever form they are being, and the joy of reading these fairy tales aloud to someone else, commenting on these weird tales as we went on and on and on I noticed that reading them with someone else really upped my enjoyment, because as I was left to finish the last ones on my own I kind of didn t care any Maybe that s due to the fairy tales becoming What s left after finishing this collection is a memory of beautifully described nature, of quircky characters all struggling with being in whatever form they are being, and the joy of reading these fairy tales aloud to someone else, commenting on these weird tales as we went on and on and on I noticed that reading them with someone else really upped my enjoyment, because as I was left to finish the last ones on my own I kind of didn t care any Maybe that s due to the fairy tales becoming sort of weird towards the end, a kind of weirdness where it felt the tales themselves were not really going anywhere Before they felt dark and weird, but good weird in the sense that there was humor and silly random things happening Most of the tales are concerned with kings and queens and princesses and talking thinking feeling animals and trees that sounds less coherent than I wanted it to sound Just, maybe that s nice to know I m definitely giving the collection at least 3.5 stars It s a very well put together selection of Andersen s fairy tales, I m assuming, and the introduction is quite interesting If you decide to read it, please do read it to someone else or let someone else read it to you if possible , no matter your age well, maybe not when you re two years old, maybe Some tales that stood out for me wereLittle Claus and big Claus , The little mermaid , The emperor s new clothes , The ugly duckling , The shadow The snowman.

    I finally finished this book My reading was improved since the first half took me about 4 moths while the second half took me less than 15 days Most of the stories deal with Death and Sorrow, is also a very religious book.I m so use to happy endings with fairy tales that was, for my surprise, not the case with most of the stories The fact that isrealistic with the idea of death and how to deal with it made me getengaged than I expected.It has a lot of fantasy elements but not I finally finished this book My reading was improved since the first half took me about 4 moths while the second half took me less than 15 days Most of the stories deal with Death and Sorrow, is also a very religious book.I m so use to happy endings with fairy tales that was, for my surprise, not the case with most of the stories The fact that isrealistic with the idea of death and how to deal with it made me getengaged than I expected.It has a lot of fantasy elements but not in the way of finding a godmother with a magic wand that can change the life of the characters.The book is perfect for fall winter I got to say is very atmospheric.I like most of the stories, I didn t understand a few and I was really disappointed with Snow Queen I have to say it Overall a great book to read

    I could never imagine that there comes a day in my life when I read H.C.Andersen in his own language I would say Andersen hasdimensions than I imagined him in Persian.

    This book is intresting although its a fairy tale book and you would say these story are pretty obvious and i know most of them since i was a kid, but no they are very different from the stories we have read when younger it has much of grown ups content Really intresting and you wont get bored of Its just amazing how you recall a story from childhood and expect a certain ending but you see something that is totally different from what you know.
