Grimms' Fairy Tales

by The Grimm Brothers

488 ratings, 72 reviews

Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, or the Brothers Grimm, were born in Hanau Germany in the late 1700s. They were well known scholars who made popular a multitude of European folk and fairy tales that had until then remained mostly an oral tradition. Most of these stories are well known, such as "Rumpelstiltskin", "Snow White", "Rapunzel", "Cinderella", "Hansel and Gretel", and "The Frog Prince." But these aren't the sweet and happy tales made popular by Disney: they are often way more gory and brutal and awesome.

That said this might not be the best collection to read to little kids before bedtime, unless you're raising some child goths or something. For example in Cinderella the stepsisters get their eyes picked out by birds, and have their feet all cut up. Either way, this is a collection that is timeless, and can be enjoyed by young and old alike.

Eclectic; timeless short story (at times teeny bites!) fables--often doubling as sound parable--sometimes silly; quirky; odd; ever unpredictable; macabre; edgy!

I found it to be intriguing and realistic, like the un-seen parts of the Disney movies made from these stories, and same with the folklore that it spawned.

This is the best book I've ever read- it doesn't seem like fairy tales, yet it's really entertaining and a great way to waste time on a rainy afternoon. Praise the Grimm Brothers!
