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.
A few other reviews cite poor copyediting: I didn't find it that bad. It would have benefited from another pass, but it's not sufficiently 'in your face' to ruin the story, unless you let it. There may well have been a newer edition since some of the very early reviews as those mistakes don't appear to be in the current edition. It's not perfect, but few kindle books are. For the money, this one is a winner.
Interesting fun/concept, not for serious reading (By serious, I mean a book to immerse yourself into). Basically a mock of fairy tales told in diaries entries, example you wouldn't see the devil using language like wtf. As i said not serious reading and modern language adds to that factor.
I liked the bloody Mary tale and how that was tied in.. This book wasn't what I was expecting, but then again I don't really know what I was expecting... It had a cool cover (I know... Don't judge a book by it cover, but we mostly do anyways) and it was a cheap price..
As mentioned above this book cheap from amazon and it's worth it for light non serious reading, geared towards teens..
If you want a fantasy fairy book you probably best going with Leslie Livingston, Julie Kagawa or something..
If you want real fairy tale book then would be best going with hans christian or a more official grimm fairy tale book.
Another Alternative I enjoyed was 'The Last Wish', which was a good book for some Darker Fairy Tales (written into a fantasy aspect)
If you consider that, masters of the horror genre (I might mention Stephen King, I might mention Dean R. Koontz...) are actually modern masters of the fairy tale. Perhaps you find it difficult to make that leap, take it in smaller steps. J.K. Rowling, Neil Gaiman, Guillermo Del Toro... now do you see where I'm going? (Just don't mention the Twilight woman, hideous writing, hideous storytelling and a lead female that would have made Elizabeth Bennett's mother ashamed of being a woman! Argh!!!)
Preamble over, after reading these six prequel shorts, I loved the delicate touch with which the stories were twisted (or just turned) to show a different angle, taking them through their "Grimm" origins and past the other side. If this is just the beginning of Cameron Jace's work, I can't wait to see the rest and I'm sure his career will only be limited what he imagines.
