Grimms' Fairy Tales
Average rating
3.9 / 5
Should have left it for the youngsters
July 4th, 2015
Found I got bored very quickly and did not read to the end. It is fairy stories after all and I should have left it for the younger set but I'm not even sure they would appreciate it these days

I really enjoy classics like this one. I wish this review didn't need to be so long. 100 characters is too many.

Immense
July 24th, 2014
Both a nostalgic evocation of the fairytales of our childhood and a realisation of the sheer volume of tales which aren't as well known. Pleasurable though dense.

Great to read the actual stories as they were written and not through the lens of a Disney World motion picture.

One of the great Fairy Tail books
December 22nd, 2013
Overall stories are great. Best for bedtime stories. Most of them are famoues in my country, Sri Lanka, and I have heard them from my elders. Great book!

Alright book
July 14th, 2013
To be really honest with you, this book destroyed my childhood values. Even though some of the stories in here I found quite entertaining, I don't need to be told by two people of how to run my life based on a few petty childhood fairy tales. You could definitely tell which stories were ancient German folklore and which were created by these two (masterminds?) as the ones that did not make sense you could tell we're created by the two brothers. With all that said and done, this was an excellent compilation of the stories, and more, that I grew up with and learned to love, with an obvious twist. These stories teach us the moral values that we hold in modern day society. One final thing I would like to say is that I am glad that this was only 62 stories from the brothers and not the entire 206.
