I found this story by accident not too long ago, not my favourite by Hans Christian Anderson, but enjoyable all the same.

I think I have found my new favourite Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale. I began reading this because I mistook it for the original story Frozen is based on (which is actually 'The Snow Queen', not 'The Ice Maiden'). However, my disappointment disappeared completely by the end of the first chapter. This is a dark tale, as is the Anderson fashion. However, the light outweighs the dark in this one. The description is absolutely breathtaking, and the protagonist, Rudy, is a lovely character. This [...]

Very interesting, its a bit like the Snow Queen, but better written and lot more fun to read, not as confusing as Anderson's Snow Queen, which I just read a few days ago, which is why I am drawing a parallel between the two books. With Anderson's work, I see a lot of Christianity, which was very unique back in Anderson's time, but quite refreshing at the same time.

The whole time while reading I was thinking how the movie Frozen adapted this story and I finished the story disappointed. Maybe I believed I'll have more surprising turns and challenges but I didn't.

I found this to be a very disturbing story. I think I will wait for Disney to turn the rest of these stories magical
