All of the tales can be enjoyed separately or read in succession. Each one has something different to offer but all are well written and unique. They definitely keep your attention from start to finish.
If you love a good horror story, especially the zombie genre, then you should pick up this collection. All of the stories within are great reads, but due to the ick factor and violence of some of them I would say these are definitely not for kids.
Zombie Fairy Tales does have its gore and is certainly not for the faint-of-heart. There is a lot here to make you shiver with disgust and repugnance (think reanimated babies). Despite the physical horror Richey invokes, I found the emotional ride equally, if not more, monstrous. Simply put, a large amount of the general public are just plain loathsome. Every man for himself must have been the mantra of this fantasy world. I often found myself rooting for the zombies. And these zombies are not mindless drifters; they remember who was naughty. I suppose the moral of the story is to treat everyone with dignity and respect else they turn into a zombie and exact revenge.
Each chapter of the book can be read independently as its own story. However, each story gives a subtle nod to the previous one and they all ultimately tie together. I really enjoyed encountering characters from previous stories/chapters in other stories/chapters. For example, Hansel and Gretel are skulking around while the Little Match Girl is struggling to survive her story. It was like a gory game of seek and find.
I never thought I'd be showering praise on a zombie book.Read more ›
This collection of tales take the original tales we all know and put a wonderful twist to them. Yes the stories are dark and grim (haha pun intended) but fascinating to read. I couldn't stop reading I enjoyed them so much.
The first tale starts with the creation of Pinocchio and introduces the idea that a plague has afflicted the town where Geppetto lives. And so it begins...... The following tales focus on other characters, such as Cinderella, Hansel and Gretel, and Ariel, but they all tie in together as the stories unfold. Just amazing.
This fairy tale world is filled with violence and gore; the main characters struggle to survive and overcome as their stories take grisly twists to the originals. While filled with the horrors of zombies the stories still contain bits of whimsy, yearning, and the fulfillment of dreams.
Kudos to the author. What an amazing imagination!! I loved all the little nods to peripheral characters (JH and the crab) and the creative way that some of the characters came to be who they were (Hook and the huntsman/wolves). While staying close to the original stories, he truly made-or should I say remade-them his own. I highly recommend this collection to anyone who loves fairy tales.
