Beautiful cover! the pages are thin and might be a bit easy to rip. I find that the stories are translated the way they should be. Great book for anyone considering buy the complete grimm's tales.

Simply put, the book looks stunning and cost much less than it appears to, as praised by everyone I've it to. Leather bound cover with deep red, reflective etchings, and gilded pages make this book a must for any book lover's collection.

As stated in the product description, there are no illustrations, something which I preferred initially but have come to find lacking after reading it for a month or so. I also find it odd that no notes or references are are provided for the preface establishing the Grimm Brothers' and the book's background.

The collection is very diverse: we have the classics (such as Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Rumpelstiltskin, Cinderella, Little Red Cap, Hansel & Gretel) and lesser known tales (The Wolf and the Seven Little Kids, The Girl Without Hands, The Duration of Life, Iron John, etc). Nevertheless, this collection is in fact complete, comprised every story listed here -- [...]

The stories themselves are, translated from German and read exactly as they do on the website above -- it's very straight forward with little whimsy or poetry. There's not a lot of romance in the way it's done, at least not in the traditional "Once upon a time, in a land far, far away" sense, and some of them end rather abruptly after all the violence and horrors. It's rather odd and I'm curious to know whether this is how those specific stories are actually written or if this was merely a product of bad interpretation. I would love to see what The Annotated Brothers Grimm have to say about those.

In short, is this book worth getting?

In a sense, it's both a yes and a no.

I was so surprised when I first opened the book, the attention to detail is remarkable. Some of the art work is more than 100 years old and fascinating to look at. The book also comes with two ribbon book marks to hold your place. It was a gift for my daughter's first Christmas, but I know she'll enjoy it for years to come! Excellent gift for any child.

It was a gift for my sister for Xmas. Beautiful book. Was exactly what she was hoping for, leather bound, and very expensive looking, for a not so expensive price tag.

I'm having a great time reading these stories to my eleven year old daughter at bedtime. She's fascinated by the stories and it helps expand her vocabulary as she asks me what some of the words mean. The binding is nice, the book looks great and the fact that it has all the Brothers Grimm stories in one compilation is nice.
