this my favourite I ave no idea what fairy tale this originates from Anyone got any ideasLooking at some of the other reviewsratings I m in the minority in that I really enjoyed these retellings of

of Short Stories An imaginative and entertaining re telling of fairy tales giving them a modern day setting while staying true to the outline of the tale itself A few I did not recognize but the first s a re telling of Hansel and Greta using a sited and brother in foster care Interesting and differentARC from NetGalley Fairy tales carry us back to a primordial kind of attention the attention we gave the world when everything was for the first time We accept the irrational elements of fairy tales and its enchantments in the same way we acknowledge that parts of our minds are unconscious unknown and unknowable to us and yet very much there extant real true significantIn a 2012 lecture Jack Zipes said that fairy tales are examples of what e calls childism He suggests that there are terrible aspects to the tales which among other things ave conditioned children to accept mistreatment and even abuse Which may elp explain my affinity for the title story and why it resonated so much with me As a boy I can remember numerous times when my brother and I were left alone in a parked car while our father was away visiting a new Me Write Book house in some new neighborhood always cycling back around by the end of the weekowever and then coming out Cosmological Enigmas hours later and simply leaving No explanation was ever given as to why we were there or whate was doing there

This book is composed of eight short stories which were inspired by fairy tales Some of the stories I was able to recognize the fairy tale and others I m still not sure about I was very excited to read this since I love fairytale retellings and I thought that it would be an easy read since it was split up into short stories However I never really fell in love with any of these storiesI thought that the stories were very well writt These were great short stories that most of them I Tigress for Two (Alaskan Tigers, hadeard of before Some ad a different spin to Them And Others Were Brand and others were brand to me I enjoyed these some better than others obviously But all in all still a g Who doesn t love fairytale retellings It amazes me ow many times the uman mind can come up with different sides of the same story can come up with different sides of the same story retell it differently Maybe this was my problem with The Witch Other Tales Re Told Having my mind set on fairytale retellings I was expected to see some sort of fairytale retellings I was expected to see some sort of but after I finished yet another disappointing story I wanted to break my Kindle How many stories you say I eard there were eight I barely finished the first three Yup I physically could not make myself read any After every ending all my face said was wtfHope this Sailor Moon Episode Lists helps to some people I m still trying to figure out what Candy was based on and what was the point of the story I received an advance copy of this book from NetgalleycomI love Fairy Tales and re telling of fairy tales too These 8 stories were so different in writing Iad to check that it was not a compilation by different authors Too many of the following stories I was surprised when all of a sudden I Attentions Throbbing had to look to see that was the ending Was that IT I liked the Hansel and Gretel DCFS angle in the first storyThen I was a bit confused at times just what tale some of the stories was a re telling ofThe last story the best of them all It did leave me with a better feeling about the whole book The Author s note was a very good one and I was all set for a book that I was going to enjoy than I ultimately did If Iad 3 wishes The stories would Dark Reflections (Dark Reflections, havead a clear link to the fairy tale it was referring toThe stories would Spinetinglers Anthology 2008 havead of an ending the old fairy tale or fable moral of the storyThe last story would Angélique à Québec (Angelique: Original version have been longer I was really enjoying it I am a complete and total sucker for a re told fairy tale so it s probably not surprising that I enjoyed this collection Even without the fairy tale connection the stories stand on their own I would usually start a story asking myself what it was based on then get so immersed in the writing that I forgot to wonder about it until the end This review and others posted over at my blog I m just going to give a few random thoughts on each storyThe Witch A take on Hansel and Gretel Absentee parents but sort of by accident and a foster mother I enjoyed this a lot and I liked the daughter s POV and the open ended endingInamorata I looked up the definition and it means a person s female lover This is a Cinderella story where the princeas a mental disorderdisability and Cinderella is deaf It s oddly cuteCandy Hmmm This one was open ended too and didn t work for me I wasn t sure what message I was supposed to get It s a tale of reputation and cybersex and making your own termsFaith A Pied Piper tale from ye olde times darkThree Mehh This didn t pan out for me I don t even know if I can sum it up A son s thoughts on Body Image, Eating Disorders, and Obesity his mother s abandoning the familyThe Curse This one was rough and could be triggering to some not overly graphic but does reference rape Theorrifying part of this story is The Doughboys how set in reality it is It s a curse you can certainly understand someone making What goes around may come around to than just yourselfYour Secret s Safe With Me A man s latest wife gets the best ofim This one was long and the end was frantic and dream like I enjoyed itPrince This story was unexpectedly touching and the last few lines punched me right in the feels Not going to lie I totally cried A great end to the story a touch melancholy but still 魔法使いの涙 [Mahou Tsukai no Namida] hopefulIf Thompson wants to write collections with the same feel slightly magical somewhat morbid contemporary magical realismy I ll be thanappy to buy and read them This was just what I needed when I was in a slumpI Futurity highly recommend this if you re looking for A contemporary shorts collection with just a touch of magic Some female driven fiction Stories that will creep you out make you mad and maybe even make you cry SPOILERS22 This is a book of short stories fairy tales retold into realistic the first one was at least stories of modern life As each story is individual I will review them individuallyThe first story was The Witch and it was a retelling of Hansel and Gretel with the wit. Great fairy tales are not always stories designed for children The lurking wolf in Little Red Riding Hood the gingerbreadouse that lures Hansel and Gretel the beauty asleep in er castle these fables represent some of our deepest most primeval fears and satisfy our longing for good to win out over evil preferably in the most. Ch played by an old woman who takes in foster kids The children are Jo and Kerry whose father neglects them daily by leaving them in the car alone for ours while Reclaiming Authentic Fundamentalism he spendsis days in a bar They try to find their way Lenora home but end up getting picked up by the DCFS Department of ChildrenFamily Services who place them with the witch while they try to work things out with the children s fatherI thought this was a very intelligent way of telling the Hansel and Gretel story with a realistic spin on it This kind of thingappens all the time if you believe what SVU tells you children removed from
