  • This is a seriously beautiful book. As a huge book lover, just looking at it and paging through it makes me happy. As you can see from the pictures, it comes with gold dipped pages and a red ribbon book marker. My boyfriend commented that it looks just like a Bible.

    I attached some photos of the Contents, just in case anyone was wondering what specific stories are included (although I do believe it's supposed to be a complete set--but I don't know Grimm's stories well enough to confirm that).

    Hope my pics have helped! :)

  • I don't know if this is unique to the Kindle version, but this edition is truly a travesty.

    I bought it a while ago and have been reading the stories whenever I get some free time. From the start I had the feeling that these stories were a little "off". The brothers Grimm are known to be somewhat somber, I get that, but they also portray humor and subtle nuances in their writing. However, this English version reads as if it had been stripped of any wit before publication.

    A few days ago, I finally discovered the main problem: the translation is just awful. I really didn't want to believe it, I truly wanted to think this book was a faithful representation of the original stories, and it was just a case of me not "getting it". Then I read the story titled "Clever Hans" and it was such a bizarre experience, that I had to look up how come it ended the way it did. That's when I discovered this gem, which is illustrative of the problem that affects the whole book. If you go to Wikipedia and read the plot of "Clever Hans", you learn the premise of the tale, how it is supposed to be humorous and the ending should read something like:

    "And that's how Hans lost his bride."

    However, after reading this book's version of the tale, it read like a bad story, not humorous at all, and it ended with the line:

    "Then Grethel became angry, tore herself loose and ran away, and became the bride of Hans."

    Clearly, the translation went as far as to completely change the meaning of the punchline of the story. Now I know I have been reading a bad imitation of the Grimm brothers work all this time. Nothing left to do but to look for a better rendition of their work.

  • Amazon has merged reviews of multiple editions, here.

    This cloth hardcover volume is 8.1 x 10.1 INCHES, 320 PAGES, with 27 STORIES (versus the flexcover 5.4 x 7.7 INCHES, 192 PAGES, 14 STORIES The Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm that, at roughly 1/3rd the price and practically identical-looking in online images, people mistake for being the same!).

    It is as durable as it is displayable -- as complete as any "coffee table" book of Grimms' most popular classics could be, with page after page of brilliant illustrations by esteemed artists (whose biographies are provided). That's Taschen: its books are worth every (*pretty*) penny.

    I cannot speak to this translation versus other English ones (note: the cover is not in German as Amazon displays), but there is a Translator's Note at the end. An index, too. And at the beginning, an introduction to Grimms', for the uninitiated.

    Beautifully presented and told, it is an anthology for all ages to cherish.

  • A beautiful book especially for the price. I love that the intro includes some information on the brothers and short stories. There are 201 stories and 10 legends included in this book.

    The book itself has gold pages, red and gold highlights on the front, embossing and a red ribbon bookmark.

  • The book came on time & looks exactly as shown. It has many tales I did t realize existed. I bought this to use while writing a report on the gruesome truth behind the tales we love. These are NOT books for children. As an adult I appreciate the original stories. However, there are still fairly watered down from the true original tales. As I was using this in my works cited I found I had to search for more sources seeing how this book wasn’t true originals.

  • Great book for all the fans of classic fairy tales, me included. The book is of course in Old English grammar, which is grand. And it is printed in the U.K. so you'll see a lot of 'single quotations' rather than "double quotations".

    The only con is the stories aren't the "original" version per se. The Frog Prince for example turned human again by sleeping in the princess's pillow, but the original version, the prince turns human again after the princess violently throws him against the wall. But I guess it's for the kids to read more so than adults. Still worth getting. I'm still pleased.
