Recommended for: Dark and original Fairy tales
Read in January, 1998

This was given to me and I have read it over and over. The dark tales are told fluidly without losing any of it's dark side. I like these better than some of the original material. The stories are the same but the way they are told are a bit more smooth and modern. This is the book that got me really hooked on dark fairy tale and other horror. I love that fairy tales were meant for adults. These stories don't hold back and they shouldn't.

The only think I dislike is a nasty typo/ missed edit that leads to an odd plot hole in the Aschenputtel story. However, I have a very old edition. If it has been republished in the last 5-7 years, I hope they fixed it.
