Sep 16, 2014While readers may be familiar with either the oversimplified childhood fairy tales or the popular television series Grimm, it’s a cinch you haven’t seen the collected works of Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm retold with such tongue-in-cheek humor. This entertaining book begins with some fascinating history about the brothers Grimm and the political/social atmosphere of their time. Most people assume the brothers made up the stories but for the most part, they went throughout the German countryside While readers may be familiar with either the oversimplified childhood fairy tales or the popular television series Grimm, it’s a cinch you haven’t seen the collected works of Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm retold with such tongue-in-cheek humor. This entertaining book begins with some fascinating history about the brothers Grimm and the political/social atmosphere of their time. Most people assume the brothers made up the stories but for the most part, they went throughout the German countryside collecting the local folklore before it could be lost. And what a good thing they did because it would have been a tragedy to lose this treasure trove of stories which frequently were told as cautionary tales and contrary to contemporary versions, seldom ended well.
Oct 07, 2014Confession! I've never seen an episode of Grimm...I know, right? But I've always wanted too because I have a love of the dark side of fairy tales. What drew me to this book was the added historical background information the author includes about all the things that appear in the TV show.
Dec 27, 2014As a book that I felt like I could have read for one of my courses in University, it was a really good book. I love how it retells the fairy tale/folklore, then compares it to the show. And then for some of the tales, it talks about possible origins of even the fairy tales. For anyone even remotely interested in the background of the Grimm TV show, this is a good read.
Sep 26, 2014Amazing! Very interesting book both for fans of the TV show Grimm and for those readers who have never watched an episode. Learning the stories behind the stories of the fairy tales I grew up with is so enlightening. And the writing style of Nathan Robert Brown makes the book impossible to put down! I highly recommend this book... Then check out his other books as well. He is my favorite writer!
May 26, 2018You may know that I’ve been into Grimm for a long time (I think I’ve watched the series TWICE despite the fact I have 123456 shows on my to watch list). Well, I finally got my brother into the series, which means that it’s my third time watching the series (no complaints) and more importantly, that I can buy Grimm-related books!
Feb 04, 2019A good place to find Brothers' Grimm tales that relate to the Grimm TV universe. Well laid out, with each chapter the author discusses an episode, then a Brothers' Grimm tale that coincides with it, and then further discussion on how the tale directly relates to the details of the episode.
Jan 05, 2018I am a big fan og Grimm, and I liked the idea behind the book.
Oct 01, 2017A fun way to catch up on some old folktales. Especially if you liked the TV show.

Sep 06, 2015For fans of the NBC show "Grimm" this is a neat little reference for the origins of some of the "Wesen" characters that are at the core of each story. Nathan Robert Brown uses the stories from the series as a guide and creates an easy accessible reference book.
Oct 12, 2014Actual rating: 2.5 stars. While I wasn't a big fan of the colloquial tone the author took, I liked that the format was different from what I expected. Even though he gives the Grimm brothers too much credit, the background information and included fairytales are a nice touch. However, major points deducted because the third season wasn't included. I know they were working off a tight timetable but this is out of date before it even publishes.
Feb 21, 2016Great read,and very informative
Dec 18, 2014i thought this would be essays about the show. instead it was one author looking at the mythology of the series. good, but not what i expected. should have read the reviews more closely.
