The Surface Breaks

Deep beneath the sea, off the cold Irish coast, Gaia is a young mermaid who dreams of freedom from her controlling father. On her first swim to the surface, she is drawn towards a human boy.

    I ended up DNFing this book at about 82%, so I feel like I know what it was that I did not like about this book and I feel confident in my rating.

    The synopsis of this book says that it is “reimagined through a searing feminist lens” and I do not agree with that at all. To me when a book says that it is a feminist retelling, I think that it is going to have female characters that stand up for themselves and fight for equality, but in the 254 pages that I read of this book, not once did our main c

    Have you seen this cover? I just want it to be in my bookshelf beautifying it, all I want is to look at it and plus, a retelling of the Little Mermaid with feminism? Yes, please and thank you.

    "We are women. And women are warriors, after all."

    This story is a retelling of the famous The Little Mermaid by Hans Christian Andersen and therefore this book is anything but the happy and soppy Disney movie that everyone knows and has grown up with. Therefore the story is much darker than you might expect. Do not forget how tragic this tale truly is.



    When I first read the synopsis I was immediately sold because it had promised us that this story was going to be told through the lens of a f

    Disclaimer: I have read and loved all of Louise’s previous work and I love her newspaper pieces but this one just wasn’t for me and that’s that,so don’t come at me,please.

    For once,I quite honestly have no idea how to rate this.Most of it was floating (lmao,get it?) in a meh kind of space,while the last 30 pages or so felt so strong.However,all of that being said,boy were the lows so low and did it really feel lik

    That cover!!

    'Another human woman set on fire by an insatiable man.' Louise has done it again - she has reimagined this classic in a way that will make your brain do mental gymnastics to align what you thought you knew and what you know is right. I inhaled this book, much like every other feminist masterpiece Louise produced. I winced while reading this book, felt every sharp bit of pain that Gaia did. Admittedly I don't know much about the folklore surrounding the tale but what I do know is that Louise has ...more
