read Grimm’s Fairytales know that they’re…well...GRIM.
The TV show, which is now in its 4th season
on NBC, has managed to bring the universe of Grimm’s
tales in to the “real world” through the lives
of the “Grims” themselves. As exciting and intense
as the show is, it’s still based deeply within legend
and folklore that has been around for centuries. This book
takes fans of both the fairy tales and the show deep into
the universe from which they were created, dissects the fact
from the fiction of the key items, characters, and mythos
of the show itself, and dishes out tasty morsels of linguistic
knowledge and history by offering up “Grimm word”
snippets sprinkled throughout the pages.
I had to fight two people to keep my hands
on this book. I’m so glad I did. It’s filled with
great info about the background of the stories and the show.
I’m a huge fan and am in a constant state of “what
can I get my hands on next” when it comes to mythology,
legends, and lore so getting through this book was like being
allowed an entire chocolate cake for dessert. There’s
info about the weapons, creatures, stories, and symbols that
are at the heart of the popular TV show. It is a must have
for many different types of readers, not just fans.
