Grimm and Grimmer

Dark Tales for Dark Times

Grimm and Grimmer is a mixture of modern and old, these certainly aren't the fairytales we listened to as children. You get an intriguing mix of short stories some remaking stories like the Three Little Pigs and Hansel and Gretel. Others are original modern fables, and in the case of Pinnochio, a dark continuation. The writers are many and varied and each brings a unique flavor to each story in the book.

I would have liked to have seen some of the tales expanded upon for more show rather than tell, but it didn't stop me from reading and enjoying the eclectic collection.

For those looking for quick reads that are definitely out of the box, pick this collection up and see which of the classics you recognize.

Book Blurb for Grimm and Grimmer

Grimm and Grimmer is a collection of fairy tales told from a modern perspective.

Part of the attraction of the original Grimm Brothers' tales was that of their relevance to their audience, and the tales in this book capture the magic and horror of living in modern times.

Though the settings vary, the talented authors within the cover of this book speak to the mysterious, the unknown and the unknowable, which is not lost in these times.
