Es war einmal...!!!
Es war einmal. Neue und klassische Märchen - Jacob Grimm;Wilhelm Grimm;Grimm (Brüder);Grimm (Gebrüder);Heinz Rölleke

german review
audible audiobook


Inhalt: Die schönsten Märchen der Gebrüder Grimm: die beliebtesten Klassiker und fünf neu interpretierte Märchen mit Einleitungen bekannter Lesebotschafter.

Lesen ist ein Geschenk: Seit Jahrhunderten bezaubern die Märchen der Gebrüder Grimm Kinder und Erwachsene gleichermaßen. In diesem liebevollen Hörbuch sind die bekanntesten Klassiker versammelt, von Aschenputtel, über Schneewittchen bis zu Rapunzel. Auch fünf neue Märchen voller Zeitgeist, geschrieben von Bestsellerautoren wie Iny Lorenz und Poppy J. Anderson, folgen den Spuren der Gebrüder Grimm. Das Besondere an diesem (Vor)Leseschatz: Prominente Lesebotschafter, u.a. Joey Kelly, Olivia Jones und Jens Lehmann, erzählen einleitend, was das jeweilige Märchen für sie bedeutet und warum es sie bis heute durchs Leben begleitet hat.


Meine Bewertung: Fasst nicht die alten Märchen an und modernisiert sie!!!


Das war wirklich ein gut gemachtes Buch. Ich mochte es wieder mal die alten Märchen in ihrer Originalfassung zu hören. Allerdings waren die zwei Märchen, Die Bremer Stadtmusikanten und König Drosselbart, schrecklich in ihrer Modernisierung. Sowas braucht man nicht. Da waren mir die neuen Märchen, die neu erfunden waren wirklich um einiges lieber. Auch haben mich die vorworte nicht sonderlich interessiert. Ooops!!!

Grimms' Fairy Tales
Grimms' Fairy Tales - Jacob Grimm,Wilhelm Grimm

The audio book that I downloaded from Libox is a free download. It got a 62 Chapters or you can call them stories by the Grimm Brothers. It fairy tales and what the originals stories ending really are. 

Did you always think that the Disney version was the real one and did not know that they did not really end up Happy ever after. Well I did until I read a book that was called Grimm Woods by D. Melhoff. 

It made go looking for the original stories of my favorite fairy tales. Grimm Woods did not tell all the fairy tales ending it was story of itself but it did act out some of the fairy tales. It also is an adult or new adult book. Please be caution to that fact. 

This one is not as graphic in the audio book. This is not to bad. It help understand some of the fairy tales. The ending are different then though of Disney's. I know why that is, it is because they remade them to fit better for young children. 

You will get some of your classic fairy tales in this audio book. It enjoyed it. Though I say it will take some time to listen to. It a 10 hours and 32 mins long audio book. I would suggest listening this is pieces or couple of hours a day.

Wolves and Campfires: Grimms Märchen by Die Brüder Grimm
Grimms Märchen. Gesamtausgabe - 'Jacob Grimm', 'Wilhelm Grimm'

(Original Review, 2005-11-30)

In Genesis there is suddenly this sentence/observation about giants walking the Earth in them days... I always see those elderly male Jews in Babylon, staring glumly at some campfire, thinking about the good old days and thinking up revengeful plans to smite the enemy. They tell the stories of their tribes but there is that one quite senile idiot always going on about 'them giants' - so in the end they say, "Okay, we WILL put them in. Now shut up already!" I can see myself being the Giant Guy (if more all over the place) and I'm not sure the good campfire folks here need the distraction...
