Not the best. The idea of this book is fantastic, but sadly the actual book isnt. For starters, the book's narrators are extremely predictable. However, the little red riding hood chapter's narrator was definitely unexpected. Secondly, the writing in this book is way too modern for the time eras each story is set in. If this book had more (but not all) language incorporated from classical fairytales, it would have been much better. Thirdly, a lot of the conclusions from each tale left the reader unsatisfied. Whenever i finished a story, i found myself with many unanswered questions and slightly confused. Books usually are able to fill in the reader with continuous explanations and details to help the reeader figure out what is going on; and at the end of the book(s) and/or series, the reader is caught up to date and knows what happened. And some books are supposed to leave you with unsatifaction and questions, but this book over did it. I was so looking forward to reading this book and im glad i read it. I just wish it was written better and had a solid storyline. I hope this writer or any other writer will write something around the lines of extended fairytales and such. Its a great idea and hopefully writers will step up and give this a shot
