„A Tale Dark and Grimm“ by Adam Gidwitz
Do you know the proper fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm? I don’t mean the Disney versions, the ones with happily ever after and a true loves kiss… think more like, cutting off fingers, beheading your own children, people burning people.
If you don’t or if you do and want to know more, this is the book for you. Of course this time, it’s Hansel and Gretel running through all the fairy tales by themselves, but you’ll recognize seven ravens when you see them, right?
This book is bloody, gory, shocking, but also wonderful, funny, has an amazing voice and is, all in all, a great quick read. If you like fairy tales but you’re a bit bored of happily ever after, „A Tale Dark and Grimm“ is the book for you.
I’ll definitely continue with this series soon.
