Die, Snow White! Die, Damn You!: A Very Grimm Tale | [Yuri Rasovsky]

Die, Snow White! Die, Damn You!: A Very Grimm Tale

With the premiere of two new film versions of the Snow White tale, Blackstone enters the fray with its own adult, edgy, and not altogether serious full-cast exposé of fairy-taledom. At last it can be told! Was Snow White really as pure as the driven snow? Did her allegedly wicked stepmother get a bum rap from the Grimm brothers? What went on behind the closed Dutch doors of the dwarves’ cottage? How many handsome princes does it take to screw in a light bulb?

Audie Award Nominee, Original Work, 2013

With the premiere of two new film versions of the Snow White tale, Blackstone enters the fray with its own adult, edgy, and not altogether serious full-cast exposé of fairy-taledom. 

At last it can be told! Was Snow White really as pure as the driven snow? Did her allegedly wicked stepmother get a bum rap from the Grimm brothers? What went on behind the closed Dutch doors of the dwarves’ cottage? How many handsome princes does it take to screw in a light bulb?

These and other burning questions may or may not be answered in this new pseudogothic audio play that Blackstone commissioned from award-winning author and audio dramatist Yuri Rasovsky.

    "This is more of a mash up"

    I think that Die, Snow White! Die, Damn You!: A Very Grimm Tale is more of a mash up of many recognizable faerie tales. Rumpelstiltskin, Little Red Riding Hood, Hazel and Gretel, and of course Snow White. This audio performance proved to be hilarious at times, and is definitely for adults only as it is full of sexual innuendos, cursing and more than likely offensive to many. Sound effects and music is something that I am not accustomed to, it did make this performance much more enjoyable. All that said it did entertain me, making me wonder where on Earth will it go next.

    "Pretty funny"
    What did you love best about Die, Snow White! Die, Damn You!?

    I loved the comedy, plus the price was right for the length of the show.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The inversion of a lot of old time fairy tail characters and strange twists in their stories.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    I like full cast acting in books. Brings a lot more life to the story like old time drama radio.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When snow dies out of stupidity.

    "It's funny but...."
    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I think I expected too much from the story. I wanted a little more character development, to see them change or grow or something...


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The narrators all brought the perfect voices for the characters and added greatly to the humor.


    Do you think Die, Snow White! Die, Damn You! needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I thought the ending was abrupt. There was no indication of what happened to the wicked stepmother or the duke or anyone other than Snow White.

    The deal of the day is awesome! Sci-Fi, Fantasy, historical fiction, mystery, thrillers with sarcasm are my favorites.

    Story
    "The Carol Burrnett Show for your Ears"

    ROFLWTIME (for those non-internet slang users: Rolling on the Floor laughing with tears in my eyes) from the start.

    Don't expect to find the anything remotely resembling "Snow White a Tale of Terror". This reminded me more of a Vaudeville show or one of the Carol Burnett Show skits that gets slightly out of hand as Tim Conway & Harvey Korman start alibiing.

    This is the book to read if you are feeling blue and need something to cheer you up or for about any other reason. Yuri Rasovsky spins a unique take on the classic Snow White fairy tale story with a few other fairy tales thrown in for fun. The Narration staff was OUTSTANDING!

    "What you could expect"

    A somewhat different take on the story of Snow White, going for grim jokes and mixing up the cast of the story with characters from other tales. Some of the jokes are funny, some are not. Storywise it's not more than average.



    The cast is doing a good job though, and it's well produced, which helps to get the third star.



    All in all it alright, though a bit short in my opinion.
