    First, I share with you how I decided to read this book Read my silly coincidence A prelude fairy tale It was dark already, when I was getting down through the steps, from my rooftop after my lazy late evening walk I found a little creature jumping over my feet I got scared for a moment, quickly came down, took a torch in my hand and climbed up back to the stairs.There, not to my surprise, a little frog had placed himself just at the corner of a step At ground level of my building, there is good [...]

    The original Grimm s Brothers fairy tales were a far cry from the Perrault collection of many of the same stories, the Green Fairy Book by Andrew Lang, or, God forbid, Walt Disney The Brothers Grimm told stories with meat on their bones, where the good people were heroes and the bad people were really, really bad The outcome of a particular story rose and fell on the consequences of the actions of the characters The evil stepsisters in Cinderella, for example, did not go to the wedding of Cinder [...]

    Boldly ventured is half won.As always, Grimm Brothers didn t disappoint me I enjoyed this tale than I expected.OVERVIEWThere is a princess who proclaims that whoever solves her riddle, she will marry him Princess is 100% sure that nobody can solve it but a tailor solves it In state of shock, Princess refuses to marry him and gives him another test to pass in exchange of marriage She puts him in the cage of bear If he stays alive all the night, princess will marry him.This tale was a fun read fo [...]

    The copy that I owned as a child had Anderson s stories on the reverse UPSIDE MOTHERFUCKING DOWN I know, right Too rad for words Why don t I own it any I presume it just fell apart from the heady love affair that I had with it I was besotted Rapaciously smitten If rapacious means what I think it does I just wanted to climb in between the covers and love it good With or without its consent Maybe rapacious simply means greedy, which does just as good because I was greedy for it, like a fat kid who [...]

    Do you know kids today don t know how gory fairy tales are This is a travesty and will not stand while I am a teacher While we were discussing Paul Bunyan this week I got sidetracked and started talking about how everything in fairy tales happens in threes Like how in the original Cinderella the stepmother tries to trick the prince by cutting of portions of her stepdaughters feet to fit the shoe The kids were all riveted and many asked Where s that book with all the gross stories in it during SS [...]

    I tried I tried so hard to read this book.I kept telling myself that I can do it That they re all old fairy tales That it s nice to know the origin of all those classic stories.But no I just I really can t do it any.They re all ridiculous, annoying, and so so so much boring.DNF I m not sorry

    I was gifted a lovely edition of this which was incredibly thoughtful, since there was no occasion for it So, this is a review as much as it is a perfect bout of nostalgia for me There are 211 tales in here so I m not able to, nor would I want to comment on them all.Grimm s tales are known all over the world Hanzel and Gretel, Rapunzel, Rumpelstiltskin, The Frog Prince everyone knows these, right What about The Old Beggar Woman, One Eye, Two Eyes, And Three Eyes, The White Bride And The Black On [...]

    I wish I could review each and every story in this individually, but there are soooo many All I can say is that this has given me quite a few story ideas and its also given me quite a lot of laughter along with probably scarring me for life, as well P Some of those stories are creepy And if anyone writes a fairytale retelling of The Straw, The Coal, and The Bean let me know, because that will be HILARIOUS.

    This was a chore to read, I thought it would be brilliant and dark Sadly, it was anything but, there was the odd moment of slight creepiness but that was about it Out of the two hundred or so stories, there were only a few that stood out the rest were all repetitive, it felt like I was reading the same story over and over I was getting sick of the same themes, characterizations and dynamics used The message throughout was that All stepmothers are bitter, jealous, evil, immoral, lazy and greedy S [...]

    I love fairy tales I grew up with Disney s cute, timeless renditions of them I think it s important to point out, though, that Disney definitely made the majority of these stories much palatable For example, in the original Sleeping Beauty, the prince basically rapes the princess while she s asleep and by the time she wakes up it turns out she s already had kids by him In the original The Little Mermaid, the mermaid kills herself after seeing the prince marry a human girl In the original Cinder [...]

    I ve been meaning to read this one for a while It is fascinating to see how all of the fairy tales which we have grown up with in a sanitized Disnified form, originally came to take their shape The tales are in as enjoyable a form as any cheerful animation Whatever translation was done is seamless and there are no ridiculous schisms between the meanings and implications of terms that have different connotations in German a common trait when words do not match exactly in two different languages, [...]

    Nunca dej de leer cuentos infantiles De vez en cuando, entre tanto Camus, tanto Borges, Kafka, sadasdsdaf, tengo la necesidad de salir de lo absurdo, lo opresivo, lo filos fico, la realidad, en definitiva para volver a lo b sico, a esa ingenuidad que caracteriza a la ni ez, donde realmente crees en bosques m gicos y hermosas princesas que no hacen m s que dormir hasta que su pr ncipe azul las despierta con el beso del amor verdadero aunque jam s las hab an visto antes, y personajes con nombres q [...]

    He visto tantas adaptaciones de estas historias que no dudar a en hacer la m a en formato de Novela Gr fica, algunas tan disparatadas y terror ficas que las otras, esa es la esencia que siempre me ha gustado de los hermanos Grimm, me sorprende como textos tan oscuros se volvieron lindos cuentos para ni os, en mi opini n prefiero torturas que un final feliz

    The original collection of tales, that encompasses the foundation of what we base the majority of our present day lessons upon In particular, Rumpelstiltskin was a story that struck me as very intense and dark for being a children story The idea that Rumpelstiltskin is portrayed in a devil like fashion, and is the essence of evil, scares even me In addition, the story contrasts normal gender roles, where the man is wise and the woman is weak and insignificant Within Rumpelstiltskin, the roles ar [...]

    I think this is an absolutely important book for everyone to read The story tropes are important for appreciation of other later works in all forms of entertainment So why did I give it three stars Because so many of the stories in here are not ones that you have heard before, and for good reason, they are either boring, a copy of an earlier story in the same work there about seven stories of Clever So and So that all follow nearly the same story path , or don t really teach anything Also, have [...]

    The kids really enjoyed hearing the real story of Cinderella, Snow White, and others But some of these stories are just so darn WEIRD The Straw, the Coal, and the Bean is that anyone s favorite story Yeah, I didn t think so But this is a beautiful edition leather bound, gilt edged, with a ribbon bookmark and a creepy owl on the endpapers If you re looking for an old school edition of Grimm s Fairy Tales, this would definitely be my pick Oh, and the kids favorite story The Fisherman and his Wife [...]

    Even though I like some of the Disney movies they re mostly watered down and fluffy versions of these incredibly imaginative, dark and grim folk tales that the brothers Grimm collected Even though not all the tales are interesting I would happily get this to my bookshelf anyway.And finally, I would like to thank you my Finnish teacher who introduced the morbid world of the Grimms to my class when we were 13 She read the most memorable fairy tales to us under a red lamp and it made me travel back [...]

    La vera fiaba c era una volta e ci sar sempre.Un volume che una perla della mia libreria Non si pu dire nulla di nuovo sulle fiabe Iniziano tutte con c era una volta , finiscono quasi tutte con e vissero per sempre felici e contenti le versioni variano Forse mi aspettavo un pochino di pi , ma le fiabe dei Grimm sono sempre le fiabe dei Grimm.

    When people are too well off they always begin to long for something new What an entertaining and enjoyable collection of fairy tales with sharp sprinkling of reality and just a little bit of madness but that s expected from Fairy tales The Complete Grimm s Fairy Tales is not the usual Disney stories we grew up with but an older version with life lessons on the dangers of the world I guess this is how they used to teach children common sense in the past and it s fantastic because children are re [...]

    I made it through, and WAY on time for the readathon This was a much faster read than I had anticipated since fairytales are in an older English, I thought it would be slower and difficult to get through them, but since I already knew many, many of the fairytales in German and they aren t very complex stories, I flew through these Obviously there were some I enjoyed than others, but overall it was a really good read and the ones I loved way outweighed the ones I didn t like so much, so I can c [...]

    This is probably one of the most famous and influencer book of tales of our time Hansel Gretel, Ranpunzel, The Little Redhood But although we have listen and seen many times the major part of its stories I can say that I never read the original ones, amd I have to admit that they are interesting and dark than I expected It s a great readin for all who want to discover the real stories of the classic tales.
