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. She longs to join his carefree world, but how much will she have to sacrifice? What will it take for the little mermaid to find her voice? Hans Christian Andersen's original fairy tale is reimagined through a searing feminist lens, with the stunning, scalpel-sharp writing and world building that has won Louise her legions of devoted fans. A book with the darkest of undercurrents, full of rage and rallying cries: storytelling at its most spellbinding....

    That cover!!

  • Katie.dorny

    Everyone oversold me on the feminist part of this story.

    Don’t read further on if you don’t like ranting.

    Gaia spends most of her time pinning after the main boy who ends up being an ass. Her inner monologue is recognising the boy is a stranger - but her must be perfect because she loves him!!

    Her father is an ass as well - what a surprise that is.

    She feels sorry for herself the entire time - a lovely whining monologue.

    The biggest feminist is Ceto who is the sea witch and therefore the natural en

    Ahhhhhhhh this book!!! This book was so empowering, beautiful and perfect.

    Firstly, I was already on the hype train for this book because it's written by an Irish author. Despite being Irish myself, I haven't read anything by an Irish author since school so I was overly excited (from what I know, YA isn't that big of a genre over here). Secondly, this book talks a lot about feminism and women in society which isn't something I read about a lot. And, obviously, it is a retelling and not just any r

  • Resh (The Book Satchel)

    A retelling of the Little mermaid.

    What to expect:

    - a patriarchal under water kingdom ruled by the Sea King

    - HIGHLY ENGAGING plot

    - plight of women in a partriarchal world - being wed without their permission, being called unnatural, being forced to behave, being cast out as rusalkas, life of a sea witch, a human wife who is emotionally wrecked by her selfish, lazy son and her husband who was in a world of his own.

    - the world building was excellent.

    What disappointed me

    - the mix up

    A retelling of Anderson's fairy tale. A feminist one. An awesome one. It was good to read about the merpeople kingdom.

    As for the world-building… 'Rusalka' is a 'mermaid' in Russian. Why the author thought them ferocious or anything, beats me. Obviously, yet another author became a translation troubles victim. Yes, they supposedly all mermaids have nasty tempers… Still, they are only mermaids.

    The concept of the armistice achieved by Muireann was underdeveloped. Basically, what, the Sea King neede

    3.5 Sterne 🤔 denke ich 😅

    The Surface Breaks war ein absoluter Coverkauf 😅. Nachdem sich auch der Inhalt toll angehört hat, musste ich es natürlich auch gleich lesen 🤗.

    Aktuell weiß ich aber noch nicht was ich von dem Buch halten soll 🤔. Es handelt sich um ein eher düsteres Retelling, was natürlich auch daran liegt, das die Vorlage nicht der süße Disney Film ist, sondern das Original Märchen 😅.

    Ich habe das Buch jetzt an einem Abend beendet, denn es ist wirklich toll geschrieben und man fiebert au

    A book by Louise O'Neill? A fairytale retelling? Feminist?

    This should have been everything I wanted. But it wasn't.

    I read Almost Love when it came out and I can't help but wonder if maybe writing the two booms at the same time damaged this one. I had my issues with Almost Love but at least it was always written in O'Neill's startling, crisp prose. How I wish I could say the same for this. For the most part, the writing was very heavy handed, and she was constantly trying to point out feminist

    Not even going to pretend I'm adding this to my TBR for any reason other than that beautiful cover
