I am not very familiar with this genre, especially in a more modern sense than Grimm, so I was not exactly sure what to expect. I picked up the book largely because I wanted to read more Oscar Wilde. My actual rating varies greatly based on the story. Some were drawn out and a bit boring, others were overwrought, but some were also hilarious or poignant. The book as a whole is worth the read, as is the section explaining exactly why Oscar Wilde wrote them. We really should have more modern fairy tales!
