Meet the Author

Wilhelm Grimm or The Brothers Grimm, Jacob (1785-1863) and Wilhelm (1786-1859), were born in Hanau, near Frankfurt, in the German state of Hesse. Throughout their lives they remained close friends, and both studied law at Marburg University. Jacob was a pioneer in the study of German philology, and although Wilhelm's work was hampered by poor health the brothers collaborated in the creation of a German dictionary, not completed until a century after their deaths. But they were best (and universally) known for the collection of over two hundred folk tales they made from oral sources and published in two volumes of 'Nursery and Household Tales' in 1812 and 1814. Although their intention was to preserve such material as part of German cultural and literary history, and their collection was first published with scholarly notes and no illustration, the tales soon came into the possession of young readers. This was in part due to Edgar Taylor, who made the first English translation in 1823, selecting about fifty stories 'with the amusement of some young friends principally in view.' They have been an essential ingredient of children's reading ever since.

This ebook of Grimms' Complete Fairy Tales appears to be a digitized copy. It is readable, however I found the table of contents to be useless for navigation. You can read the TOC to find the page but then you have to manually navigate to the page number. The TOC is not directly accessible via my Nook ereader. I did find several miss-spelled words in my short 5 minutes reading so I decided to delete this version and to go get another version. I will look at the non-free versions to get a copy that can be navigated using the Nook ereader controls.

A mixture of Poe and Aesop's fable may best describe the fantasies featured in the pages of this tome as they entail morality tales many of which do not shy away from bloodshed and gore that have become accepted as the norm courtesy of the Disney studios catering to political correctness and providing baby food for the masses. If this were not enjoyable enough, all these tales are collected in a single volume. At times, however, it is this very inclusiveness that works against itself as some of the stories are very much the same thus becoming repetitive while, in other instances, abrupt turns in the story line with a suddenness that proves disconcerting and confusing. This last is overshadowed by the aforementioned virtues making both the hardcover edition with a dust jacket containing liner notes (ISBN-13: 978-0-088029-519-2) and the leather bound volume (ISBN-13: 978-0-7607-0335-9) lacking the dust jacket and liner notes but, instead, having gilded pages and attached gold ribbon book mark both excellent additions to anyone's library.

This book does indeed contain the same, good old stories, but they are translated into a literal, flat english that leaves all the richness and shadow out of the stories. Highly disappointing and hardly worth reading when there are so many better versions of this collection.

Even though this has spelling errors and table of contents does not link to stories this is a complete collection of all 211 stories. It is unedited and contains punishment for the wicked. Great deal for free!

I have been wanting to read the complete works of the "real" fairy tale stories. This is a fantastic reading of all the Grimm's classics. Dark, gory and sometimes funny tales. The true story of Cinderella is by far the best! The stepsisters scheming and lengths they go through to get the shoe to fit are how we see the darker side of humanity. Not recommended for elementary school aged children.

This book is priceless, in that it contains those tales that are well-known and those that are practically unheard of. Many of those that we have heard, i.e. Snow White & Rose Red, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, etc. are told in their original fashion, without having been watered down or "Disney-cized" for children and those who constantly wish for happy endings for all. I think that there is a certain sense of dimension added when these tales are left as originally told, as they were passed down through the generations. Many similarities can be seen between the Grimms' tales and those found in other collections - this is because they are a part of who we, as people are. They are culture.

So many classics, but if you're used to the Disney versions, you're in for a ride.

This book is great! Every one of the tales have a good moral to them, but i would not recommend them for small children to read.

I can't wait to read this. I bought the boxed set with this, Edgar Allan Poe, Shakespeare, Jane Austen, Sherlock Holmes and Illiad & Oddessy last week and I am definitely starting with Grimm. My boyfriend has been reading the Alice & Wonderland versions for a couple months now and told me about it's dark secrets. I have always been a Disney fan but I honestly wish they would have thrown in the darker sides just to make our inner demons smile. I'm excited!! I have a different series I'm reading right now but the moment I'm done....... <3
