Review: The Snow Queen

The Snow Queen
The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Weird story. So this is obviously a story of redemption and, while I see vague similarities, this is not at all like the story in Frozen.

Frozen, of course, claims that this is the tale which their movie is based off of.

Anyway, in this story, Kay and Gerda are the main characters. Kay gets a piece of magic mirror caught in his eye and his heart making him see more ugly than good – a pessimist- and runs off and is captured by the Snow Queen… Gerda treks an adventure to find him even though he was quite an ass to her before he left…

I have to say that the Little Robber Girl is quite frightening and I’m very glad that the reindeer was allowed to escape her creepy knife tickles which frightened him so. Geez, lady…

Weird story. Even stranger fairytale. I definitely prefer the way the story is told in frozen.
