Read in March, 2012

In 4,500 reviews there's an average rating of 4.25.... I have no idea how this is. These fairy tales lack any signs of creativity. They're written with a fleeting sense of commitment. Like he had an idea for a morality play turned it a fantastical fairy tale and just hoped for the best. I have little ground to stand on here since I've never read the complete fairy tales of any writer and have never read anything from Oscar Wilde, but it was a painful 225 pages. Each adventure I'd start saying to myself, okay this one here will be a famous one or a step above the rest and four pages in I'd either see the entire plot right before me or would be too bored to care.

Avoid this book unless you know EXACTLY what you're in for and are still looking forward to it.
