Summary

Teacher Patrick Healy traveled around the world, talked with people in different places, and collected around half a thousand myths, legends, and folktales and their several alternative versions. His opinion and comments (directly or indirectly) are inevitable. This is the fourth volume of his work, 30 Grimm's fairy tales, in his words. He retold the stories with his own opinions and approaches to them. 

Patrick is an Australian writer who has an abiding interest in the folklore of different cultures. He has lived and worked in Hong Kong for over 25 years as a high school teacher. Patrick has traveled extensively throughout Asia and speaks both Cantonese and Mandarin fluently. Music (audiobook version): "Moonlight Hall" by Kevin McLeod (incompetech.com).

sounds like someone recorded it in a kitchen

was really interested in this one but just could not get into the book because it just sounds so unprofessionally produced. The sound is hollow as if it is recorded in a kitchen on a mobile phone.

Grimm's tales volume One

This book is full of old tales from the Grimm’s. Patrick Healy gives readers his own interpretations of these tales. From familiar tales to some older and less known works the author does a nice job of bringing the worlds and characters to life. I am a big fan of fairy tales and enjoyed the retelling of these stories from the Grimm’s. Narrator Denise Kahn does a good job with each of the stories and had me entertained through the book.

I received this audiobook at my request and I voluntarily wrote a review.
