Review: Mermaid: A Twist on the Classic Tale


Mermaid: A Twist on the Classic Tale
Mermaid: A Twist on the Classic Tale by Carolyn Turgeon

My rating: 4 of 5 stars



This was a retelling of one of my favorite sub-genres, fairytales. I loved the complexity and emotion behind this book. I love how the author took HCA's Little Mermaid and expanded it to a full length novel with real purpose and meaning behind the mermaid's sacrifice. And even though it doesn't end the exact same as the original fairytale, the ending does add a distinct moral to the story.
