    1. I enjoyed itIt has the distinction of being a mix of 'modern' and primeval. It's reasonably well written and ends with a nice vacation story.



    2. An interesting period and perspective piece of the time just preceding the First World War by what I am assuming was an English author living in Germany. I can't find much information on its original publish date, but it's easy enough to tell from details in the stories that the countries aren't yet at war. Electricity, railways, and tunneling with dynamite all make appearances, as do references to zeppelins and the commonality of inns by the name of "Hohenzollern," to give you an idea of period [...]


    3. Fairy Tales from the German Forests includes ten tales of German origins. I'm fairy certain that these stories are only written to seem like fairy tales, instead of being properly traditional tales ala The Brother's Grimm.Because they are stories rather than folklore, the morals are heavy-handed, the prose is overfull of descriptions, the ethnocentrism is more distinct, and the setting is a bit more modern.Most of this can be explained because the intended audience is children, but with the unex [...]


    4. It's interesting from a historical perspective. The stories are written by an English woman living in Germany in the early 20th century who was inspired by the traditional German folklore. The stories are charming, but there is occasionally a shocking bit of "ethnocentrism" as one reviewer tactfully put it. These stories fit into the fairy tale genre, but are firmly grounded in pre-WWI era.


    5. This book took me five weeks to finish. I read 12 other books in the interim. In fact I cheated and skipped the last half of the last story. This book is extremely boring and I only enjoyed one of the ten stories, the lake fairy one.
