Hello everyone,
I was eager to snatch up this book after looking at the images on Amazon and seeing how beautiful it looked. However after reading several reviews this appears to be a poorly translated version of the original book. It's unfortunate as the book looks very nice but a book in this case should not be judged by its cover.

Unfortunately for this book the stories have been muddled with so badly some of them lose their point. I would avoid this book and look for an original if you want the true Tales. It is too bad they didn't take the time to translate this properly. I hope this comment helps somebody out from spending $10 and then finding out the tales don't make sense, the true stories are fascinating.

So not really much of a book reader, but just recently am finishing up the Grimm TV show. This would be kind of nice to read and keep on the bookshelf for the price its at. I am 50 50 but will probably pick it up, thanks!

Was just going to pop in to say this -- if this is the original, unedited translation of the tales, be prepared for some very dark stories (death, torture, etc) as well as some racy and very offensive stuff. Not "PC" at all. I won't let my kids read it yet.

Its weird how my parents never picked up on that fact reading to me as a young child as I fell asleep to the image of birds pecking out cinderella's step sister's eyes.

Is it free because you have digital credits?

I thought that as well and verified, after purchasing, that it is 100% free without using digital credits.

Kindle version was free for me too. I have $0 digital credits, but I do have Prime, so maybe that's why it was free.
