    To see this review and others please visit readrantrockandrollI have a thing for fairy tales, especially Hansel and Gretel. So when I saw A Tale Dark and Grimm at the library a few weeks ago, I couldn't hesitate. I needed to read this book. Firstly, I thought the story was incredibly creative. It's like the classic Hansel and Gretel except in addition to the witch, they deal with many other scary beings and they move through different fairy tales. They decide they must choose their own fate and [...]


  • Rick Riordan

    This debut YA novel is getting a lot of well-deserved attention. Gidwitz manages to balance the grisly violence of the original Grimms’ fairy tales with a wonderful sense of humor and narrative voice, somewhat reminiscent of Lemony Snicket’s take on the penny dreadful, but also completely fresh and unique. Gidwitz weaves the fairy tales together into a single narrative featuring Hansel and Gretel, and does it so well you’ll be wondering if this was the way the stories were meant to be told [...]


  • Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books)

    I loved, loved, loved this book! This is the kind of book that I wish I could find more of. I think it was a wonderful fix of humor, horror, suspense, angst, and a great coming of age story. I didn't think that I would appreciate a story with Hansel and Gretel thrown into other fairy tales, nor could their story sustain a full-length novel. I was wrong on both counts. Hansel and Gretel became very dear to my hearts. They started out as little children who were doing what little children did. Liv [...]

    Didn’t want to read this. Nope. Not a jot. Three reasons for that. First off, the title. I’ve said it about twenty times since reading it and every time I can’t quite get it right (derivations have included "Something Dark and Grimm", “A Grimm Tale”, and “Something Grimm”). Second, the jacket of the hardcover edition of this book isn’t particularly new. Silhouettes against a blue background. Ho hum. Third, I couldn’t believe that I was dealing with yet ANOTHER middle grade nove [...]


  • Melki

    Gidwitz spins a twisted tale that sends Hansel and Gretel into the deep, dark, and sometimes, bloody forest. Not surprisingly, no one there is quite what they seem. The author/narrator frequently warns the reader that bad things are going to happen . . . and, boy - do they ever! Hansel has a Hell of a time, as heads roll, and dragons roar. Gretel's no slouch either, when it comes to taking names, and kicking butt. Anyone who enjoys their fairy tales on the grisly side should enjoy this story of [...]

    [4 Stars] I actually finished this last week but am just now getting to this review. I listened to the audiobook and highly recommend it! It's quirky, different, self-aware, gruesome, but also silly! There was one portion of Hansel's story that I found to be a bit out of place, and sometimes the narrator would be a bit annoying with his repetition of "that's the end of the story etc. etc." Regardless, this was still really enjoyable. I recommend it to those who was something simultaneously grim [...]


  • Heather

    I studied fairy tales a bit in college -- one of my favorite subjects, in fact -- so the premise of this book intrigued me. Imagine if all those children in Grimm stories, the ones who pop up when a poor couple bemoans that they have no children, or who get entrapped by a creepy devil man, or who get killed by their parents, are actually the same two children. They're Hansel and Gretel. And each story, generally culled from the Grimms' work, takes them on a journey of self-discovery and independ [...]


  • Angela

    3.7 StarsI don't know about you, but Hansel and Gretel was always one of my least favorite fairy tales. They were always so naive, and it felt like they made it out the other side based on chance, and not any particular skill or growth they'd experienced. Here, not so. Here, Adam Gidwitz has imagined a tale that's much longer than the one we know, much more involved, and is actually several shorter tales woven together to tell the whole tale - dark and grimm.You see, Hansel and Gretel don't just [...]


  • Chris

    I've always liked an analogy for reading I once heard from an English teacher: sometimes your relationship with a book can be just like relationships with people. There are people you'll be instantly drawn to because they have a particular charisma or chemistry for you, yet with time you might realize they lack the depth and quality to be a good relationship. And there are people who don't immediately impress you or draw you in, but the more time you spend getting to know them the more they grow [...]


  • Jamey

    It was great!! I loved how there was always a twist and how they added allot of characters from fairy tales. I think that it was also a pretty easy read, because I was very intrigued. I think that Gretel was the star of the book between her and Hansel. I would really recommend this book if they like adventure.


  • Simona

    Rating: 4/5Când zilele de toamnă sunt reci în apropierea Halloween-ului, mulți dintre noi vrem să citim cărți de alt tip: fie ele misterioase, fie ele magice, fie ele înfricoșătoare, acestea ne pot apropia mai mult de atmosfera de toamnă.O poveste Grimminală a fost alegerea perfectă pentru mine, întrucât a combinat foarte fain ideea de repovestire a unui basm, elemente înfricoșătoare, și stropi de amuzament. Sunt familiară cu povestea celor doi frați Grimm, Hänsel şi Gret [...]


  • Sarah K

    Okay, I hate traditional literature books, but this was a fabulous book! I loved it! I liked how the author took a simple story of two characters that everyone knows and turned into an amazing detailed, action book! It was a book you want to keep reading to see what happened next. I recommend this book to anyone!! The one thing I didn't like was in some chapters I felt like they should have add more information, because at times I felt it ended so fast with no information. Overall this book is g [...]

    It took us a long time to read this book. Since we hadn't finished by the time it was due back at the library, we had to return it before we finished as there were holds on it. So we put it on hold again ourselves and promised to finish it as soon as we could. It was a great book, filled with fantastic and action-filled stories that were gruesome, but exciting. I have read some about children's ability to detach the written story from reality and be relatively unaffected by gore (more so than wi [...]


  • Mike (the Paladin)

    This is an odd bookort with a "young" cover painting the book is played for somewhat adult humor played against the back drop of the "original" morality tales (bloody morality tales) told in the Grim Grimm's Fairy Tales. You know the ones where the step sisters try cutting off their toes and then their heels to make them fit in the glass slipper? Here we're told a story of Hansel and Gretelbut not the one you're familiar with. No with repeated warnings to be sure there are no children in the roo [...]

  • George Jankovic

    5 stars for this novel. The author takes a bunch of Grimm brothers' tales--not what you think they are, but the original, bloody ones--and weaves them into one story in which Hansel and Gretel are the protagonists. Then he inserts himself--the narrator--into the story from time to time with wonderful humor.For example, he will ask whether any "little kids" are still in the room if some gory scenes are coming. Or will just make a funny interjection. The hapless kids in this story go through a lot [...]


  • Sarah W.

    I thought this book was very good. I was expecting to not like this book very much, but I really liked it. Every story was interesting and made me want to read more. I suggest this book to anyone that likes an adventure. Over all, I really enjoyed reading this book!


  • Kendra

    I wanted to like this book – honestly, I did! The premise is intriguing, and I love fairy tales. Plus it garnered so many glowing reviews that I kept cutting it a bit more slack than I otherwise would have done.But I found the book to be both dull and irritating. What truly turned me off to this book was the thinness of the plot and the intrusiveness of the narrator. As others have noted, Lemony Snicket this is not -- not even Book 13 Lemony Snicket!I loved the original tales, so the violence [...]

  • Ana Rotea

    Autorul vede esența poveștii fraților Grimm: o pereche de părinți denaturați, cu o justificare șubredă în a face rău propriilor copii. Gidwitz creează pe această bază o poveste nouă, mai potrivită (in)sensibilităților vremurilor noastre, cu un scenariu complicat și însângerat despre traume - da, curge mult sânge în carte ca să semnalizeze suferința. Am început să citesc cartea pentru aventura pe care o promitea - și care nu m-a dezamăgit - însă am dat de mai mult de [...]


  • Kaitlin

    Not the worst thing I've ever read, but it was pretty close. I was able to slog my way to the end though.


  • Esha

    Had this gem in my school library.Amazing. It made me laugh.It brought out the child in me. It made me feel like the hero in my own story again.Thank you Book.


  • Leah H.

    I really enjoyed reading this book! I thought that it offered a unique perspective on the fairy tales that so many of us grew up with as kids, and it was a quick and easy read.


  • Hannah M.

    This book was so good and funny, and I recommend it to anyone. Especially people who don't like traditional literature as much, though.It was the story of Hansel and Gretel, but it's much more interesting and gruesome than the tale everyone knows. Somehow, it involves dragons, and the devil's grandmother. I had no idea they were actually in so many different stories, and I also didn't know that they got beheaded by their father. And somehow they lived. (Don't worry, that wasn't a spoiler, it's w [...]


  • Roxanne Hsu Feldman

    I really really enjoyed the journey into and out of the dark dark woods that is this book by a new comer of the Children's books scene. To be honest, because I love and respect traditional fairy tales (mostly Grimms, Jacobs, with some Norse, Arabian Nights, and Russian tales thrown in) to such a degree, I get very suspicious and highly critical when it comes to authors playing with and retelling these tales.I especially resent the ones that make light of these grim and dark and powerful tales an [...]


  • colleen the convivial curmudgeon

    2.5Kind of a charming story, though suitably dark and grim to match the title. Might be a bit gruesome in parts for younger young'uns - but no worries, as the author gives you ample and repeated warning when anything dark and/or grimm is about to happen.Which was sort of my biggest issue with the story. There are a lot of times when the author interrupts - either to give said warning, or to spell out the moral lesson, or just to make a snarky comment. On one hand, these were sometimes poignant o [...]


  • Angela

    I really disliked this book! It's a weaving together of a number of the darker and more obscure Grimm tales using Hansel and Gretel as characters throughout--stringing them together as a single episodic narrative. There are plenty of gruesome touches, bizzare adventures, and magical elements but the ending is unsatisfying and, unlike the Grimm stories, there's no lesson or caution to the stories; the central theme in fact is that grown-ups can't be trusted. There are lots of attempts at humor as [...]

    Three words: I LOVED IT.Will write a review later todayXDA MEOWZER review :DNever liked the original Grimms' tales, but this one was a blast! XDHhehehehehheNow, my bro shall rub a fact in my face: I LOVE tales that have royal kids, Narnia and THIS is proof :P All hail The Pevensies and Whatever-Hansel-and-gretel's names are XD


  • Claire M

    I personally loved this book. This book is about Handel and Greeks big and small adventures but the author has a few notes though. It has Handel and gretal jump stories into some classic stories not just fairy tales Grimms fairy tales. I really hope you follow them along while they travel though eight terrific stories. (By the way this is the perfect book for Halloween.)


  • Shelby

    4 stars This was a very cute book and I enjoyed it a lot. I think that all of Adam Gidwez books are always cute and also fun to read. I love all the books he writes and I can't wait to see what happens in the next book!
