  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jonny | 12/21/2013

    " I'm not sure if there are close to the original stories or not. They are quite a bit different from the Disney versions. I was also surprised how many modern adaptations were combinations of multiple fairy tales. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mya | 11/30/2013

    " very old school some good others haard to understand "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jill | 11/18/2013

    " Damn, there is some nasty stuff in this book. "Aladdin" is racist as hell. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peppers | 11/17/2013

    " Pretty good collection of some fairy tales. For the amount it has, there is a pretty wide variety, with very well known and not so well known ones. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cathryn | 11/15/2013

    " alot of these fairy tales were different from what I was raised reading or hearing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 sparkypink | 10/27/2013

    " Wow. These are not your Disney sugar coated fairy tales, although everyone does end up living happily ever after. Well, almost everyone. It was interesting to read them in their original forms, though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol Ann | 10/20/2013

    " Yipes, and to think I enjoyed these as an impressionable child! What were the Brothers Grimm, and my beloved Walt Disney smoking? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Derrick | 7/22/2013

    " Not a bad book. It was a good book but a lot of the stories were not quite what i think they are really like. It seemed like a cross between the Disney version and the real version. Not a bad book, a very interesting read and pretty quick. I enjoyed it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah | 3/31/2013

    " It was alright, there were some stories I didn't know and some that were completely different to the ones I remember from my childhood. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tammie | 3/28/2013

    " As an adult I really loved the book as a child...well I don't think I would have enjoyed all of them a younger me wouldn't have liked the fact that some did not have happy endings. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christina | 3/3/2013

    " Cute, most of these I had never actually read before so it was interesting. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Annika | 1/27/2013

    " In theory, a nice collection of well-known fairy tales and stories. In reality, very dry. I'm glad to read some of the original stories as they were told and not how Walt Disney re-told them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca (everyday reader) | 1/16/2013

    " A good collection of well loved fairy tales. Good read!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Yaz | 1/3/2013

    " A few of these I knew, becuase they were classics, but the ones I didn't were amazing. My favorite, however, is the last one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenny | 1/13/2012

    " Some of these stories I am not sure if young readers should read. I read this on my phone's Kindle option. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Yi Ding | 1/9/2012

    " Very classical and easy to understand. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caroline | 12/1/2011

    " I probably wouldn't have read this had it not been free for kindle. There're some favorites in here, but while I enjoy fairytails in general, I much prefer the unfiltered Grimm's. I mean, Cinderella's just not the same without some good ole toe carnage. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer | 5/9/2011

    " Some of these stories were new to me, and others I was familiar with, buit my overall impression was "disturbing." I am glad I read this myself before I read it to my kids. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 5/1/2011

    " There are a ton of stories! Some stories are totally crazy and ridiculous but in a fantastical way. I wouldnt expect any less. So it's fun and interesting, gives you an idea of what children stories where like years ago. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ed Mcfadden | 12/3/2010

    " A slight monograph on the economic and foreign policy achievements of the Obama administration that is hindered by its insistence on using gender neutral characterizations and dietary advice after each story. "
