Two beauty and the beast stories was a bit much.

I did like many of the retellings and original stories though. Not worth the price imo

amazing

the stories are great if yoy life fairy tales with a slight, messed up twist. i remember having this book in the 4th grade and wanting to read it again so bad, it's funny understanding more about the story now that I'm 13. the author's emotion in the performance is amazing also. 100% reccomend.

More adult than young

I will not be finishing this and will be exchanging it for something else. It's been classified as YA but is way too mature. The reviews do not make this clear. Because it is a collection I started several but could not finish them. I did enjoy the Raven Princess to the end. But after so many failed starts I stopped even starting them. I don't mind the dark villianous vibe, but the sexy details are a total turn off.
It was well read.

Brilliant

What did you like most about Grim?

Diverse authors.

Any additional comments?

This is a fabulous collection of short stories, based on fairy tales, that have a different sparkle to them. Although marketed for the young adult genre, I thoroughly enjoyed them without even considering that they were in that genre. Short, sweet and uplifting; I would recommend to anyone.

missing the grim

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I'm not a girly girl so I prefer the original brothers Grimm stories with are more gruesome but I like that these stories are more modern. But two of the stories are very similar to each other. And there a bit happy ending without the hardship of the originals Grimm.
