    "All the famous wolf-themed stories are here, including Little Red Riding Hood, Bluebeard, Puss-in-Boots, etc. The author Angela Carter has created a wonderful collection of dark and sexually explicit stories. "

    "I love to read books with modern day fairy tale themes. My favorite right now is The Bloody Chamber: And Other Stories. It's a collection of classic stories, but set in dark and scary environments. They are all held in a creepy Gothic mansion. It's a really eye-opening and deeply involving book of stories. If you love classic fairy tales, check this out!"

    "Retelling familiar classics with a dark spin keeps the reader guessing what turn the tale will take on next. Sometimes coming off a funny with the twists to well known tales, this book is interesting, if not provoking."

    "The Bloody Chamber: And Other Stories turned out to be way better than I expected. I did not know that a lot of these gothic stories were classics that are retold a lot. I really enjoy classics such as this."

    "The Bloody Chamber: And Other Stories is a pretty good book about fairy tales that has a hint of erotica in it. I enjoyed since it tends to retell the tales of most of the females in the fairy tale history to be all powerful and has a nice hint of darkness which is quite disturbing one would say. Would highly recommend for you ladies if you enjoy powerful women."

    ""The Bloody Chamber" retells several classic fairy tales in more macabre and sexualized ways. Stories that could previously be construed as kind of sexist are often given feminist overtones in their re-writings. Sometimes, though, the author loses track of the narrative by being overly descriptive of minor story elements. Some of the re-tellings are too similar to the originals, but I suppose that is kind of the point. This seems like a decent solution to a very specific desire to read a certain fairy tell re-imagining. "

    "This is a collection of darker, thoughtful spins on popular folk tales. Two stories in the collection, The Tiger's Bride and Puss-in-Boots, remind the reader of Beauty and the Best. The tone, however, is very different. I think this is a collection meant for a very particular adult reader, not a generic retelling of fairy tales. "

    "This collection has very unusual twists and turns. The stories are definately not your usual fairy tail stories and will leave you wanting more. I would recommend this collection is you are looking for something out of the ordinary."
