Our Brothers Grimmest

Our Brothers Grimmest by various contributors

purchased from the Barnes and Noble nook bookstore

Our Brothers Grimmest is a series of short news style stories about fairy tale characters. Imagine a fairy tale tabloid and you've got it.  Each story is a modernized take, written like a tabloid article about famous fairy tale characters.  Each story is incredibly short. It assumes you are completely familiar with the source stories.  

None of the included stories wowed me, and I found the entire thing to be entirely too cursory.  The idea is interesting, the execution, though, I found to be a bit too half-assed.
