Good quality 6 mars 2007

See my customer images.

The pages have gold-leafed edges, and there is a ribbon bookmark. There is also some metallic on the cover, and the illustrations on the inside are great. I have not read the text (giving it as a gift for a new baby), but the type is easy to read. The paper is of the super-thin Norton Anthology/Bible variety (hence the 4 stars), but anything thicker would make the book large and heavy, so understood. That said, read it to your kids, but don't let them play with it too hard or you'll probably end up with torn pages. The price of this book is great though, for a decent quality hardback that is a full collection.

The Complete Hans Christian Andersen Fairy Tales, Deluxe Edition (Literary Classics) 10 septembre 2007
Par Mrs. S. J. V. Crummey - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Excellent edition, however I had hoped to receive one with colour plates rather than the black and white plates. This was my only disappointment. The book was luxuriously bound and beautifully put together. All the stories are there, and it is funny how ones memories can play tricks as I thought the description in the story The Tinder Box described one of the dogs as having 'eyes like saucers' when the book texted 'eyes like teacups' or 'eyes like towers'. I am in no position to argue, but the story still remains magical.

Worth having this in any serious book collection, but as the pages are quite fragile I would suggest avoiding letting children having free run of this in case it gets damaged, perhaps until they are at least about 8 with advanced reading capabilities.

clumsy translations / great stories 23 novembre 2007
Par shamrock2014 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
There are many better translations out there, so there is no excuse to produce something that reads badly. I was disappointed and bought another edition. Mine is being resold on Amazon. I hate these bogus "classics."

Worth it for The Snow Queen, but be aware of formatting issues. 18 octobre 2010
Par BlueFairy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
There are some Kindle version formatting issues with this version, I'm afraid. There are a few points at which there should be poetry or quotations (italicized, indented text) but they are missing. Not a huge problem, but this means a long poem is missing from "The Shoes of Fortune" and the punch line of "The Old House" is lacking.

Aside from that, I found this collection uneven, and remembered why as I child I largely preferred Grimm's Tales.

There are a few real winners. I forgot how much I like "The Snow Queen". It's a long meandering tale with plenty of intriguing minor characters and the edges of lots of other stories surrounding the core. The scene in which Gerda hears the story that each flower knows was beautiful and very surreal. I adore the side plot about the vicious, but ultimately kindhearted, little robber girl. The ending is sort of a let down, sadly, but only because the first 3/4 are so good.

I also really enjoyed the other long one: "The Shoes of Fortune." It consists of a series of sub-stories about the eponymous shoes, which cause the wearer to receive whatever they wish for. Unlike in a more traditional fairy tale, the wish-receivers have no knowledge that it is the shoes that are affecting them, and the overall moral is 'be careful what you wish for'. The second section is especially amusing, in which a townsperson who had thoroughly romanticized the middle ages finds himself back there...much to his dismay.

"The Fir Tree" is moralizing, but has quite lovely use of language. "The Emperor's New Clothes" is a classic. "The Shadow" is proto-Twilight Zone. I approve of that.

There are quite a few more that are up and down: either not that interesting, or simply too odd for me. A few are quite creepy, and a few like imitations of older stories.

Then there is the one in which Cupid is represented as a "naughty boy", that one should attempt to avoid, although usually in vain. It was so bizarre that I hopped over to Wikipedia for a bio, and, sure enough, Andersen was plagued by unrequited love. No surprise there.

Then there are a few that I hated. Ones like "The Story of a Mother" or the infamous "Little Match Girl," or even "The Red Shoes." They are well written, often pretty, but I am personally not okay with stories, ostensibly for children, in which the end is about how beautiful it is when poor children die horribly, because they go to heaven. Not okay. That is some pernicious and nasty stuff there.
