great for adults

this collection was amazing to listen to, I highly recommend it to anyone who loved the brothers grimm as a child or anyone who feels their imagination wavering as an adult. it's quite scary though and I would NOT recomend to anyone who is thinking of buying it for a young audience

Great stories, unlistenable-to narrator

The stories here are the less-travelled of fairy tales and I was very much looking forward to listening to them. Unfortunately, the narrator's overly engineered inflections made it impossible to listen to. I persevered, but in the end, returned this book.

If this had a chance,

Would you try another book from the authors and/or Cathy Dobson?

Never anything with this narrator. Dreadful to listen to.

Has Unusual Fairy Tales turned you off from other books in this genre?

No it is not about the material.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Her voice was so dull and dragged every single bit of the writing right down to the ground.

What character would you cut from Unusual Fairy Tales?

It had nothing whatever to do with character, and all to do with the dreadful narrator.

Any additional comments?

Want to return this audio book.
