3.0 out of 5 stars Great concept, poor execution, 7 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Grimm Diaries Prequels volume 1- 6: Snow White Blood Red, Ashes to Ashes & Cinder to Cinder, Beauty Never Dies, Ladle Rat Rotten Hut, Mary Mary Quite ... (The Grimm Diaries Prequels Collection) (Kindle Edition)
I'm 19, so probably a tad above the target audience, so younger (12-16) readers may feel differently. I found the concept and ideas really interesting and well thought out and plot wise the author did not let you down. Being in the middle of reading the original Grimms fairy tales I found it an interesting spin on them, and loved the dark fantasy.
However, the writing was at some points so awful I did not want to continue. The tales which were written from the point of a 'modern' teenager (the Peter Pan one sticks out in particular) were so cringe worthy I did not want to continue reading. It felt like an older person was writing how they thought a teenager spoke opposed to how they really spoke. The tales which were written from an adult or in the 19th century were much better and easier to read.
I would buy the book because for 77p is is worth it, and some of the stories are well worth the read, despite other ones just want to make you skip over them.
