"Finally finished reading all the fairy tales. =="I was bored half of the time. Some of the stories are morbid but they end up to be 'happy' endings, so it's weird. :PAnyway, I especially liked 'ASHPUTTEL'. ^^ "

    " children's audio/grimm fairytales. Though Laura Paton's narration was great, the tales themselves are rather lackluster, and I wouldn't expect this to hold the attention of an actual child (though probably fine for adults who are into these sort of audio tales). "

    " I read so many different versions, but I loved the ones where the violence was weeded out - in a Jungian interpretation they just grow, and grow, and grow. "
