    read doc õ Black Thorn White Rose õÐ ellen datlow Black Thorn White RoseI read the first five stories in the collection and then called it uits I love Patricia Wrede's story Stronger Than Time which I've read in other anthologies and may be one of my all time favorite short stories I also liked Nancy Kress's Words Like Pale Stones which did a good job of pulling the inherent but unspoken danger out of the underlying tale into the main story I didn't particularly like the others I read and am less interested in the

    read doc õ Black Thorn White Rose õÐ ellen datlow Black Thorn White RoseBlack Thorn White Rose is the second in Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling's series of adult fairy tale anthologies I'd have to say that this is my favorite of the bunch; most of the volumes are good but this one has so many wonderful stories that have stayed with me for years A few highlightsStronger Than Time by Patricia C Wrede is a sad but hopeful take on Sleeping Beauty told through the eyes of Arven an ordinary peasant widower He has lived his whole life in the shadow of a mysterious briar guarded tower When a prince enlists his help breaching the tower's defenses the reader is just as surprised as Arven is Why does the prince need Arven's help I dare you not to mist up a little when all is revealed Read More

    read doc õ Black Thorn White Rose õÐ ellen datlow Black Thorn White RoseFor any reader interested in the origins of fairy tales this series of retellings is excellent reading But be warned the original tales were often very dark; reading these books is setting off into a dark menacing wood of ominous twisted trees with only your red cape and wits for company Overall this collection was uneven than the first book Snow White Blood Red but there are some good stories that make up for the weaker entries please see my review of the first book for a list of all the series titlesAfter an informative introduction about the origins of fairy tales by Datlow and Windling there are 18 storiesStory Breakdown5 Star ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 24 Star ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 53 Star ⭐⭐⭐ 22 Star ⭐⭐ 31 Star ⭐ 6Highlights 5 Star Stories #2 Stronger Than Time Patricia C Wrede Based on Sleeping BeautyThe ghost of the Pr

    read doc õ Black Thorn White Rose õÐ ellen datlow Black Thorn White RoseNot the best installment in the series and can't say I liked any retelling of those included The Brown Bear from Norway was one I did find interesting and that was it

    read doc õ Black Thorn White Rose õÐ ellen datlow Black Thorn White RoseThis is one of what I gather to be a whole host of “alternative fairy tale” short story collections It has sat on my shelf for years forlornly waiting to be read I recently started picking at it a story at a time while reading other things It’s solidly average to decent but I actually liked it than I thought I wouldAs with most

    read doc õ Black Thorn White Rose õÐ ellen datlow Black Thorn White RoseThis was uite a mixed bag of stories Some of them were interesting but none really gripped me There were certain stories that I enjoyed reading at the time but they didn't linger in the mind after I'd put the book down And as for the not so good tales oh my god They were terrible I had to stop reading Ashputtle because I was so disgusted I didn't understand half of The Sawing Boys and gave up on that one too I discovered a glossary at the end but wasn't tempted to go back and try again The Frog King or Iron Henry was completely pointless I didn't get that one at all Likewise with Ogre and Can't Catch Me what was the pointBut as I said I did like some of the stories The Goose Girl Tattercoats Granny Rumple Godson and Sweet Bruising Skin were all interesting

    read doc õ Black Thorn White Rose õÐ ellen datlow Black Thorn White RoseAs with all story collections there are some better than others in this but all in all it's a good mixThe one story that I really want to comment on is The Frog King or Iron Henry by Daniel uinn and that's because sadly I just don't get it I know the story of the Frog Prince I noticed the mirrored writing uinn used but I just couldn't grasp what the author was trying to say with this piece Was the king injured as a frog causing his memory problems Was his ueen having an affair with the servant Was there something else that wen

    read doc õ Black Thorn White Rose õÐ ellen datlow Black Thorn White RoseAs usual with a collection of stories you like some than others but most of these stories are very good with only one real clunker The stories by Nancy Kress and Roger Zelazny who are both well known SF writers are very good Stories by Midori Snyder Storm Constantice and Susan Wade I particularly enjoyed and I was surprised that they are not better known The one I didn't care for was The Sawing Boys by Howard Waldrop Reading this story I found it very hard to believe it was written in the 1990s because the characterization was so crude and hackneyed It seemed like something Damon Runyon and Will Rogers would have written if they had ever worked together and both

    read doc õ Black Thorn White Rose õÐ ellen datlow Black Thorn White RoseOf the three collections I read by these editors this was the most disappointing Some of the stories were so obtuse as to be unrecognizable to the fairy tale that inspired the story One of the stories even needed a glossary LAME If your 10 page short story needs a glossary we have a problem This took me forever to read and uite frankly I'm glad it's over I think I'm done with short stories for a while
