did not like it
bookshelves: read-in-2008, dnf, uk

** spoiler alert ** Oh dear! I did want to like this book after hearing good things and I persevered so hard with it but by page 143 I decided that I had had more than enough and have slammed it shut in disgust.

Little Red Riding Hood shags wolves and Snow White is fat, ugly and fowl tempered? NO, NO, NO!!!!!! It's ruining all my childhood memories. Call me old-fashioned but Snow White is pretty and sweet and Little Red Riding Hood is a dutiful Granddaughter who doesn't strip off her knickers in the forest for a wolf!

Maybe I have a problem suspending disbelief but I really didn't get this or find it funny at all.

Ayu Palar Yeah, I also got disgusted in reading some parts of it. But I found this book quite interesting :)
