The Evil That Men Do: Modern Fairy Tales for Grownups
“I offer the reader modernized versions in which a backstory, a plot, is supplied to explain what might motivate their evil behavior or at least put it into a meaningful psychological context.”
The Evil That Men Do: MODERN FAIRY TALES FOR GROWNUPS is a collection of well-known fairytales that have been written in modern times with everyday people and the history of their lives. Each story has a new depth that we had not read previously. In one story, Hansel and Gretel are children living with their father and step mother in Connecticut who are captured by a child molester. The story tells of the horrors they encompass during their captivity. Have you ever known a person and thought that Rumplestilsken could have been about them? After reading these versions, you will certainly look at people differently.
Although The Evil That Men Do is disturbing in many ways, it is also brilliantly written in a way that will spark the brain cells and help the reader to have a deeper understanding of the original fairy tales as well as the world around them.
I certainly enjoyed reading this book, although I felt that the language used may be a little difficult for some people to fully grasp. Some of the stories were so engrossing that it was sad to get to the end of them. It is easy to see why this book is for grownups!
