This hauntingly beautiful retelling of "The Little Mermaid" is smoothly narrated by Jennifer Jill Araya and Mark Turetsky. Transitioning between two characters--Brooke, a human who suffers from depression, and Coral, a mermaid--Araya seamlessly delivers an outstanding performance with strong character differentiation. Turetsky portrays Merrick, playing up his golden boy personality to perfection. The narrators' sensitive deliveries allow listeners to sympathize with the principals and their unique dissatisfactions in life. Araya, in particular, does a fantastic job of depicting the story's mental health issues. Although these depictions may trigger memories of trauma for some listeners, the gentle narrations ease the pain and help to build the story. Both narrators make this audiobook a gem.
