I am thoroughly happy I bought the complete collection. I had considered only purchasing the Red Riding Hood one because it's my favorite fairytale but decided to buy the complete collection and WOW. These stories are twisted and delightful. It is amazing how many of the classic stories from my childhood got twisted on their heads. Whenever I finished reading one story I could not stop and just had to move onto the next to see what was going to happen. One thing I found wonderful that there was no magic whatsoever, instead everything happened due to a series of events involving the characters and the plague. Another is that characters from other stories make an appearance and you have that moment of realization on who they are. These stories get very dark and gruesome, which I absolutely loved about it. When I was reading a certain story within the collection I was having lunch at the time and this is the first time I had issues keeping my food down from something I read, which is a difficult thing to accomplish because I'm a criminal justice major, I read and see all sorts of disturbing stories and such and had no issues before during meal times, but some of the scenes in these stories....nothing compares to the twisted gruesomeness of some scenes, in my book a couple of specific ones ((in the two Cinderella stories and Red Riding Hood)).I only had one small issue and it was the placement of everything, because its hard to picture Sleepy Hollow as part of these kingdoms, but that is just a minor detail. I do not recommend this book for people who are easily disturbed, grossed out, and especially not children. However if you love zombies, gore, humor, revenge, and twisted stories, this is PERFECT for you.

My only negative is that I WISH I THOUGHT OF IT! However, even if I had, I could not have delivered such a superb piece of work that Kevin Richey executes in Zombie Fairy Tales!
Like Geppetto in his story, Richey stitches classic Fairy Tales together from macabre pieces to form an overall dark and gruesome masterpiece. Only 2 pages into the first story I became an instant fan. His prose is deft and his imagery coats your brain. At a time were zombie mania has saturated the market, like vampires vs. werewolves, Richey manages to deliver something unique and it does not disappoint.
Kevin Richey has earned my admiration and respect, so in true zombie fashion: HEADS OFF TO YOU Mr. Richey!

There are a lot of parody novels out now but this one is a little different. First, it`s a lot of different fairy tales and they are each divided into their own chapter. They are their own unique story. Also, the stories are in the same world so they still flow together. This is a very long novel and very well thought out. I was impressed and I liked it much more than I thought I would.

In the spirit of full disclosure, I must admit I am not a fan of zombies. I generally avoid rotting corpse literature. But when this title showed up on my suggestions list, I decided I should try something new. I fully expected a corny, clichéd zombie horror complete with cravings for brains (albeit fairytale brains in this case) and over-the-top gore. To my absolute surprise, however, I ended up devouring this book (no pun intended) and thoroughly enjoying the taste. Page one put a strangle hold on me (why the heck is Geppetto stalking around the graveyard?) and it didn't let go until the very end.

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.

Oh my word, this book has changed how I see fairy tales forever! It is pretty graphic and violent but the genious in how each story flows into the next and how paths cross as well, same with the amazing plot twists is absolutely awesome! Good creepy and subtley scary book. Love it! I want a video game, no no a MOVIE!!! Make it both, yeah both.

I think the Brothers Grimm would have approved. Quite a nice surprise on the melding of beloved fairy tales of old with a modern day version. My favorite part was how the author wove the various stories together. Made for a fun roller coaster ride because you didn't know what twist or turn was coming up. Do I want the villain turned or the hero/heroine so they could get the villain? It was fun trying to guess. Will say I was not a fan of the last one but I also can't think how else to bridge the two worlds. Very glad I got this. It is definitely a keeper.
