My Rating: 5 Stars
I was very excited to read the original tales of the Grimm Brothers' and it didn't disappoint!
These fairytales and their "live happily ever after" are dripping with blood, poetic justice and a lot of bad karma. The stories keep the morals that I got to know through the modern and softer versions of these tales but in a way that would turn the most rebellious child into the nicest, honest and compliant figure. The crude reality of these stories should how the real world looks like and the real consequences of talking to strangers, trusting someone too quickly, being greedy and price of vanity.
Absolutely loves all the stories. It's a book that everyone should read at least once in their lifetime.
I chose this particular edition because it's magnificent and it really is like the fairytale book that we all dreamed of having. I definitely recommend that you buy this beautiful edition by Taschen! Here is a glimpse of that's inside:
Hope you find an idea for your next reading here.
