    review How to Fracture a Fairy Tale 109 How to Fracture a Fairy TaleSo I’m a little frustrated I read an eARC of this that had no linked table of contents and so I didn’t know there were authors notes to go with every story at the back I would have liked these at the beginning or end of each story within the book context Especially because some of the notes Jane Yolen made at the end of the book are key to understanding her decision

    review How to Fracture a Fairy Tale 109 How to Fracture a Fairy Tale35 stars ⭐⭐⭐ ARC provided by NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest reviewHow To Fracture A Fairy Tale by Jane Yolen is a collection of classic fairy tales retold with added twists Pros❇I'm a sucker for retelling's so of course I reuested this because it sounded right up my alley I loved the writing and some of the twists I definitely did not see coming Cons❇Like any short story collection this one had it's ups and downs Some of the stories in this were brilliant but I unfortunately didn't love them all Final ThoughtsComments❇I discovered as I was reading this that I have in fact read some of this authors previous work and I would definitely be interested in reading from her in the future

    review How to Fracture a Fairy Tale 109 How to Fracture a Fairy TaleAbsolutely stunning stories one of the best collections I've read in years Jane Yolen knows how to capture your imagination from the first line and keep it whether the story is two pages or twenty I'd read a few of these before like Sleeping Ugly and was delighted to have it collected here I really must get the illustrated edition for my kids and there's a shortened version of her wonderful novel Snow in Summer to start it all off Interesting how well it worked as either a story or a novel I also really enjoyed the brief notes at the end that

    review How to Fracture a Fairy Tale 109 How to Fracture a Fairy TaleWickedly delightful and full of fun Jane Yolen takes the world of fairy tales and stands them on their heads No one is safe whether they are trolls dragons or flighty beauties Cinderella Snow White and other iconic folktales are dissected and in some cases have a new modern spin Abused princesses are empowered by their brains rather than a saved by a man Jewish Asian and Greek myths and stories are dusted off and given a modern treatm

    review How to Fracture a Fairy Tale 109 How to Fracture a Fairy TaleI have mixed feelings about this anthology making it difficult to give it an overall rating that feels accurate There were a few stories that I really enjoyed but a few too many that never sufficiently grabbed my interest I love fractured fairy tales and think I was looking for drastic changes from the original source material in some cases What's the point of writing a retelling without turning the whole story upside down and making us think about it in a totally new lightOne thing that I loved about this collection was the sheer variety of stories and cultures represented This anthology includes dragons princesses a vampire and even time travel; you will find stories that feel like they could have been plucked out of a Brothers Grimm book as well as much modern tales The Jewish themes seemed to be the most prominent throughout th

    review How to Fracture a Fairy Tale 109 How to Fracture a Fairy TaleI really enjoyed this collection of short stories ranging from lush to outwardly bizarre takes on classic well known tales I liked it a lot than I originally thought that I would But as with books consisting of short stories I find it difficult to review the book as a whole so instead I'm going to highlight a few of my favourite stories from this collection The Bridge's Complaint I really enjoyed this one and it was uniue because of its central point of view that which is from an inanimate object a bridge I enjoyed reading about the bridge's tales originally told from a troll Godmother Death I don't know if this is common knowledge but I absolutely love any sorts of re tellings andor personifications related to death the angel of death and others And so this story was especially interesting to read and I uite enjoy tales told fr

    review How to Fracture a Fairy Tale 109 How to Fracture a Fairy TaleAhoy there me mateys  I received this short story collection eARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review  So here be me honest musings While I have read many of Jane Yolen's works most have been her novels  It has only been recently that I have been reading her short stories  This collection has 28 varied tales  In addition the end of the book has author reflections on how the stories came to be along with some of her poetryThis collection didn't resonate with me as much as the emerald circus collection did  I only loved about half of them  The others not so much even though I could appreciate the skill of the writing  I will try to give ye an idea of the bare bones and thoughts on me favouritesSnow in Summer a Snow White retelling with a fantastic a

    review How to Fracture a Fairy Tale 109 How to Fracture a Fairy TaleI enjoyed some of these stories a whole lot but there were some I wasn't as enthused about The version I read had notes from the author but they were in the back of the book and didn't mean as much when not read at the same time as the story My favorites include The Moon Ribbon Happy Dens Great Grandfather's Dragon's Tales Sister Death and The Gwynhfar I wasn't as enthralled with the following The Bridge's Complaint One Old Man With Seals The Unicorn and the Pool and The Golden Balls Honestly The Golden Balls was my least favorite of them all view spoiler Trigger WarningIt was very suggestive and not at all in a good way It was of a statutory date rape y kind of way that made me feel dirty afterwards Really brought the book down for me hide spoiler
