Review: It's been a long time since I read The Ugly Duckling; I haven't read it in years since I was a small child. I found this illustrated version for free on the Kindle store and decided to grab it and revisit my childhood; plus, it's Hans Andersen who has always been a favourite of mine. I definitely got a lot more out of this book now I'm an adult, and was able to understand the message much more. It managed to sit with me a lot more now, understanding it so much better -- truly, the message is simply, don't judge a book by it's cover. This is a lesson I had forgot in a society that has become so judgemental towards everyone and anyone. It's hard to remember the simple lesson we are taught from this book, and it's hard to fully understand as a child. This lesson will definitely stick with me a lot more now, and will be a constant reminder in my own head for a long time. The illustrations definitely make this a lot more enjoyable. They're sweet, obviously made for children, but are pleasant to look at and so smooth on the Kindle app. The narrative flows beautifully; there isn't a break in it at all and it stays smooth throughout the story, making it easy to just flow read no matter what. It's a lot darker than what I remember as a child, but I suppose we all read the abridged version that wasn't so dark - like we did with all of Andersen's stories we read as children. This truly is still a wonderful story, and a classic. I would recommend this to everyone and anyone, for sure. It holds such a beautiful story and a stunning message. Maybe a lot of people in this current society actually need to read this.

    Description: A new account of the brilliant and prolific Danish writer whose works captivated readers across Europe Rarely does an American or European child grow up without an introduction to Hans Christian Andersen's The Ugly Duckling, The Princess and the Pea, or Thumbelina. Andersen began publishing his fairy tales in 1835, and they brought him almost immediate acclaim among Danish and German readers, followed quickly by the French, Swedes, Swiss, Norwegians, British, and Americans. Ultimately he wrote more than 150 tales. And yet, Paul Binding contends in this incisive book, Andersen cannot be confined to the category of writings for children. His work stands at the very heart of mainstream European literature. The author considers the entire scope of Andersen's prose, from his juvenilia to his very last story. He shows that Andersen's numerous novels, travelogues, autobiographies, and even his fairy tales (notably addressed not to children but to adults) earned a vast audience because they distilled the satisfactions, tensions, hopes, and fears of Europeans as their continent emerged from the Napoleonic Wars. The book sheds new light on Andersen as an intellectual, his rise to international stardom, and his connections with other eminent European writers. It also pays tribute to Andersen's enlightened values | ??values that ensure the continuing appeal of his works.
