I have the complete set of the Grimm Fairy-Tales, and there are so many that I haven’t read! They are very short, as one would know, so I have decided to read each one and give them a review. Some are very vulgar, some are very cute and some don’t even make sense. Some of them are well known fairy-tales and some have never been told. Some are fairy-tales we know but are not the same because they have been downplayed for the children.
This is probably one of their stranger stories.
Have you ever met someone so pretty that they are completely corrupt in the mind? That is what this princess was. She wouldn’t marry someone unless they agreed that if she died, they would be buried alive with her. Not to go off the point of rating and reviewing this book, but if you love someone, you want them to live a full life even after you have gone.
Besides that point, the princess married an old poor man’s son who saved a war for the king. He agreed to her terms, but he didn’t realize what he was promising until the day that the princess fell ill and died.
The poor man’s son and the princess’s body were placed in a tomb together, though the thought of dying slowly in a tomb terrified him.
The poor man’s son saw a miraculous thing happen with two snakes (what that is, you’ll have to read and find out) and brought his dear wife back from the dead.
But she wasn’t all there.
What exactly she does? You’ll have to read and find out. This story is very twisted in my own opinion, but I wouldn’t say it is a bad twisted.
