    I finally finished this book!!! Myth reading was improved since the first half took me about 4 moths while the second half took me less than 15 days!!!

    Most of the stories deal with Death and Sorrow, is also a very religious book.
    I’m so use to ‘happy endings’ with fairy tales that was, for my surprise, not the case with most of the stories. The fact that is more realistic with the idea of death and how to deal with it made me get more engaged than I expected.
    It has a lot of fantasy elements but not in the way of ‘finding a godmother with a magic wand that can change the life of the characters’.
    The book is perfect for fall/winter! I got to say is very atmospheric.

    I like most of the stories, I didn’t understand a few and I was really disappointed with ‘Snow Queen’ (I have to say it!!!). Overall a great book to read.
    My rating is 5/5

    "What is the matter with you?" he asked her.

    "Well, the matter with me is," she said, "that I cannot collect my thoughts, and am unable to grasp the meaning of what you said to-day in church—that there are so many wicked people, and that they should burn eternally. Alas! eternally—how long! I am only a woman and a sinner before God, but I should not have the heart to let even the worst sinner burn for ever, and how could our Lord to do so, who is so infinitely good, and who knows how the wickedness comes from without and within? No, I am unable to imagine that, although you say so."
