    New World Fairy Tales kindle  Paperbackread ´ cassandra parkin New World Fairy TalesI’d initially thought that this collection of short stories was going to be very strong on the fantasy element but while it’s clear that these are all fairytale retellings all the stories are realistic with only hints of magic scattered throughout—which was in itself expertly doneThe stories are as follows♥ Interview #4 4 stars Uns

    New World Fairy Tales kindle  Paperbackread ´ cassandra parkin New World Fairy TalesI’ve read uite a few collections of fairytale retellings in recent months and this one is among the best It’s rare for me to read a short story collection and enjoy every story and this is one of the few times that it has happened Parkin does an incredible job of subverting traditional fairytale tropes and also linking them to contemporary life The collection is set up as a series of interviews done by a college student documenting the stories of strangers The most memorable story was a retelling of The Three Little Pigs as a commentary on race relations in America

    New World Fairy Tales kindle  Paperbackread ´ cassandra parkin New World Fairy TalesSurprisingly good real life stories with just a gentle touch evoking fairy tales we all know Mostly Grimm's brothers ones What's makes it even interesting although on the other hand a bit too straightforward are political and social themes running through out those stores White cops crimes on Afro Americans corporations sucking every bit of life you have in you and throwing you out like a pice of garbage celebrities culture etc Having said all of that it was a good and smooth introduction to fable inspired literature

    New World Fairy Tales kindle  Paperbackread ´ cassandra parkin New World Fairy TalesAny Fairy Tale retellings are fine by me and when you set them in modern day America it just adds something a little extra to the mix and I found this book to be a fabulous little read around 150 pages that offers something very different it was fascinating trying to work out the original fairy tale some are easier to work out than others and the messages from each story were also very relevant to the times we're living in The mix of characters and settings also worked so well and were often very edgy and very inventive

    New World Fairy Tales kindle  Paperbackread ´ cassandra parkin New World Fairy Tales35 starsA really interesting collection of short stories inspired by fairy tales set in the modern day The way I hear people talk about this collection I expected there to be of a connection between stories and supernaturalfantastical elements but I was let down in that department I did enjoy some stories than others the second one was probably my favourite just because of how uncomfortable it made me feel as well as the 3rd one set in a cabin that was really cute but I feel the formatting of short stories made all of them really approachable and easy to

    New World Fairy Tales kindle  Paperbackread ´ cassandra parkin New World Fairy Tales'New World Fairy Tales' is a collection of short stories influenced by the Grimm Brothers’ fairy tales set in the ‘new world’—chronologically as well as geographically It is also the winner of Salt’s 2011 Scott Prize for a debut collection of short stories I must confess that I didn’t have high expectations—it seemed a rather hackneyed concept; what could possibly be extracted from these stories that hasn’t already been exploited by Disney or parodied by Dahl? Although who doesn’t appreciate Red Riding Hood whipping a pistol from her knickers? Cassandra Parkin’s interpretations however are fresh and inventive without losing the enchantment o

    New World Fairy Tales kindle  Paperbackread ´ cassandra parkin New World Fairy TalesThis book contains six short stories ostensibly based on individual Grimm's fairy tales but with a twist A big hard twisted twist Not all of the tales are actually from Grimm's by the way despite whatever maketing hype or other reviewers might say This isn't a bad thing by any means just a little complex than the simpler statement The tales are also ostensibly based on a series of interviews with assorted fairy tale characters living in the US We get interviews #4 9 15 17 27 and 42 Of the six I must admit that there are two that just baffle me as to which tale they are based on One might wonder about a Brit basing her stories in the US but I feel she did an outstanding job There is one story that has some wonky seeming bits just a few but I don't know if that is simply bad editing 'translation' issues or using a specific se
