To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I was very curious about GRIMM’S FAIRY TALES & wanted to learn more about them. I loved reading all the stories in this book. Some I knew from my childhood (Cinderella, Hansel & Gretel & Little Red Riding Hood). Some were new and I loved them (The Juniper Tree, The Fisherman & His Wife & The Elfin-Grove). Plus I LOVED the illustrations within this book.

The stories are fantastic classics; and unfortunately this was the only complete collection I could in an audio book format. The problem is that the recording is ruined by an extremely distracting echo. It sounds like it's being read from the end of a long hallway. I can't imagine why they wouldn't re-engineer the recording, but as it stands, it's very distracting.
