I rated this audio book at five purely on the narrating. I grew up with these stories and found them endearing after such long time.
For anyone who is looking for nice stories for young children and who has not read Grimm's Fairy Tales before, please don't chose this. The content is very grim indeed. All these Fairy Tales have these characteristic that I do not think are suitable for young children whose minds are still growing/absorbing: cruelty, misogynous, sexism, gender stereotype, fear, glorification of violence, dishonesty dressed up as wit and etc. In all, these stories reflect a bygone age with barbaric morality. I would not encourage any child under the age of ten to hear this book, even after the age of ten, to the age of 16, parents should be there to explain the difference between that time and this time and why something described in there is no longer suitable for this generation/era.

Again I bought to listen to with children but this is byond belief, dreadfully read, very dark, chopping people up, people in trunks running round in dressing gowns, just what is this all about, I am very unhappy as there is no warning

Would you consider the audio edition of Grimm's Fairy Tales to be better than the print version?
Yes, It brought it alive in such a fun way
What did you like best about this story?
It's a collection of stories; most of which I didn't know.
Have you listened to any of Robin Field’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Robin Field's narration was the best I've ever heard in all of my audible books. I walk a great deal and I listen to audio books when I walk. I burst out laughing so many times listening to cadre of characters and voices.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Definitely made me laugh.
Any additional comments?
It was VERY enjoyable.

Grimms fairy tales is wonderfully narrated, and a great choice of books for childrn, since many of the new modern classics seem to have overshadowed them The kids still gather when played
