Faery Tales from Hans Christian Andersen


Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(3.6 stars; 4 reviews)

This is a 1910 edition of the Fairy Tales of Hans Christian Andersen. This volume is nicely mixed, containing both the most famous tales as well as some which are not quite as well-known. The translation is adapted for American readership and in some ways brings a new facet to some of the stories. Listeners may want to have a look at the online text for its beautiful colour illustrations. - Summary by Carolin (15 hr 57 min)

Reviews

(3 stars)

They are great classic stories, but many are incredibly dark, grim and very moralistic, even when compared with the Grimm Brothers fairytales.

(4.5 stars)

I love fairy tales! These were great! Thank you to all the volunteers who participated!
