Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 rae | 2/19/2014

    " i am a sucker for fairy tales in general, but this collection gives me insight into gogol's imaginative workings... absurdities, odd, cruel, dry humor... and excellent illustrations to boot... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 whalesister | 2/10/2014

    " Best and most complete source of Russian fairy tales that I've found. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicholas | 2/2/2014

    " Although this book contains many variants of typical tales collected by Afanasyev, leading to some repetition, it exhibits the art and beauty of Russian folklore. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eric | 1/30/2014

    " absolutely essential reading for anyone interested in fairy tales or russia... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 oh carlyn what key | 1/24/2014

    " seriously there is nothing more weird and bewildering and beautiful than russian fairy tales. first of all the titles are incredible. "if you don't like it, don't listen" is a classic example. the way they end is my favorite part. often the story is clipped short by: "i was there, i drank mead with the king and it got in my beard but did not spill into my mouth." or other such brilliance. and baba yaga and her chicken-leg hut? don't even get me started. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Darcey | 1/11/2014

    " This was THE MOST exciting book my mother ever read us in the remote Pacific islands! It was so stimulating to our young imaginations!! All my siblings also remember this book - though not specific stories, just scenes (it WAS a long time ago now!) - which means something too. HIGHLY recommend for children!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Corbin | 1/9/2014

    " Beautimous. They bugger up their version of Marya Morevna, but so does Anna Karenina and nobody seems to hold that against Tolstoy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Darren | 1/7/2014

    " The illustrations by Ivan Bilibin are what really push this collection of largely Cinderella tales from three stars to five stars. They are beautiful work. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lótë (Iris) | 12/26/2013

    " Great book. Highly enjoyed it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Megan RFA | 12/26/2013

    " One of my favorites is "The Magic Swan Geese." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 12/26/2013

    " Not for everyone....but I really liked them "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ali | 12/24/2013

    " Russian fairytales are awesome. Also weird. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 1.1 | 12/12/2013

    " A great collection, not quite 'authentic' per se, but more than serviceable. Great and voluminous selection. Really well done, no complaints, not much else to offer: if you like fairy tales or care about Old Russia this will tickle your fancy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 A.J. | 12/10/2013

    " The children of Russia must live in awe and fear. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Caitlyn | 11/5/2013

    " I started reading this easily four years ago... I keep coming back to it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nelleke | 9/19/2013

    " Leuk. Wel veel van het zelfde.... Tsaren, koopmannen, Baba jaga, boze stiefmoeders. Ze verschillen eigenlijk niet eens zoveel van de europese sprookjes, alleen komt er duidelijk meer wodka in voor en wordt er duidelijk meer gedreigd met hoofden afhakken "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Becky Weaver | 6/27/2013

    " These stories are as wonderful, earthy, silly, pointless, profound, violent, and fun as I remember from childhood. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kari Gray | 4/16/2013

    " Bought this while visiting the Legion of Honor (with my sister and parents). Got to revisit many stories I'd heard as a child but have not seen since. Fun, went quickly, but fun just the same. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julia | 3/31/2013

    " It's an interesting collection of fairy tales, but a lot of them were simply confusing. Some of them I had already read in their American form, but it was nice to get a new perspective on them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nora | 3/12/2013

    " The moral of each of these stories seems to be "the world is a dick." All in all, a charming collection for anyone with a passion for folk tales. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bridgett | 2/11/2013

    " A large collection of fairy tales, most of which I hadn't heard before, but some were familiar and some reminded me of other similar fairy tales from different parts of the world. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 BlueSky&Sunshine | 12/20/2012

    " These fairy tales are so good that I enjoy reading them as an adult. You just can't go wrong with these Russian tales. My mom enjoyed them a lot when she was young and she got me to like them too. Our favorite tale is obviously the one with Baba Yaga. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Faby | 12/18/2012

    " i love it all of the the frog princess, ivan and the wolf, and y favorite of all BABA-YAGA , some of the tales were like ..DAFUQ, but in general matters they all are good "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shelley Chastagner | 8/20/2012

    " Really was only searching for one story. Very enjoyable. "
