          Let me start by saying how beautiful is this cover?!? I love the word classic books!

     If you know me, you know that I absolutely love dark stories and fairytales, so the Brothers Grimm always appeal to me. I really enjoy the darker tone of the fairytales and this book did not disappoint. I will say some of the stories I didn’t really find interesting but for the most part they all were entertaining.

        I think one of my favorites is “Rapunzel” because it always seems to end well according to companies like Disney, but this one she ends up terribly. I mean everything gets slightly resolved but still, the fact that its different from modern storytellings of it is really cool.

         All in all, I gave this book a 4 out of 5 stars.I would recommend this to people who are really interested in darker toned books and books that are clever. If you’re not interested in factual things and dark fairy tales its not for you. Like, if you don’t enjoy older language then this isn’t for you.
