The year is 1364. Hungry creatures stalk the dark woods of medieval Europe, and both sea and sky teem with unspeakable horrors. There is no foulness, however, no witch nor demon, to rival the grave-robbing twins Hegel and Manfried Grossbart. This is their tale, sad but true.

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Richard | 1/31/2014

    " This book is marketed as a fairy tale for adults. I guess adults don't like heroes, they don't like characters they can root for, and they like inane dialog about courage and cowardice, good and evil, religion and witchery all set in 14th century Europe, but having a smell of old west to it. I'd say this is all rather Grimm. (Bad books deserve bad puns.) "

    " Too Q.T. for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jared | 1/27/2014

    " A fun, dark and clever little book that is perhaps a tad too repetitive. Very reminiscent of Jack Vance's Dying Earth series, if not quite so fantastical. "

    " got a bit gory "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kurt Wagner | 12/20/2013

    " Delightfully nasty. Slows down past midway, but I'm still enjoying it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kelly | 12/7/2013

    " I wasn't put off by the characters as some of the other readers had been... I felt that the book started off well enough but became confusing and rushed towards the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leila | 12/6/2013

    " "The Sad Tale of the Brothers Grossbart" is a thoroughly enjoyable tale that is more about the fascinatingly horrible protagonists than any profound revelations. It's pure entertainment. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 10/31/2013

    " This book was gruesome, nasty and fun. I couldn't help but enjoy it, despite the gross imagery that ran rampant across its pages. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Beano | 9/21/2013

    " Started out great and then got pretty difficult to get through. Awesomely gross. Shock factor made it worth reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aaron | 9/9/2013

    " A strange fairy tale, full of magic and evil. Very funny, very dark. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristian | 7/15/2013

    " Talk about anti-heros, this book was a fun read. I can imagine some people opening this book and after a few pages slamming it shut and burning it with a flamethrower :) I enjoyed reading this book, the brothers Grossbarts are a different flavor of "evil" or is it "good". "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Leah | 6/17/2013

    " I really wanted to like this book. I read the whole thing hoping it would get better but I was very disappointed. There's plenty of violence and gore, but very little depth, character, surprise or humor. Despite all the action- I was bored. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Nick Ernst | 12/28/2012

    " This book reads like an action movie. It starts off as a quick read but ends up being really long because its tedious and repetitive. Brothers grossbart would make a much better movie comparatively to its book form. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christopher | 4/7/2012

    " Something a bit different. I was beginning to get bored by the end as there is little character development or reason behind the plot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Zachary Krug | 4/5/2012

    " Decent medieval-type adventure yarn, with lots of violence, religious irreverence and fairly vile set of heroes to guide you through it all. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve Owens | 8/4/2011

    " Um....Gross. But funny and irreverent! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John Cahill | 5/27/2011

    " A brilliant book, dark and very real. The heroes are not heroes at all, they are almost as monstrous as those they face. They are just two brothers making there way in a dark and fairly dangerous world. They care for each other and no one else. "

    " I absolutely hated it ... didn't even bother finishing it and I did try up until around half way! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Genevieve | 4/4/2011

    " There are very few times where I've read a book and found myself rooting for the bad guy. While the brothers Grossbart are horrible horrible people, I still wanted them to triumph and was pleased when they did. Kudos to Bullington for making such terrific bastards into near likable fellows. "
