    35 starsOh my Snow Glass Apples is some twisted dark and creepy fairytale retelling of Snow White lovely and dear Snow White In this short story written by the critically acclaimed author Neil Gaiman she is pure and innocent no Better watch out the mask she wears might fool you too The closer you get the dangerous it becomes “Princess?” She said nothing Her eyes were black as coal black as her hair; her lips were redder than blood She looked up at me and smiled Her teeth seemed sharp even then in the lamplight “What are you doing away from your room?” “I’m hungry” she said like any child Except she isn’t any child And the ueen knows it She feels something isn’t right about that little girl But strangely she doesn’t mention it to her husband Snow White’s father That was very odd I wouldn’t have expected the ueen to lack of courage then and prefer some sort of denial perhaps to facing the truth there is a monster among themWhat is interesting about this short story is that the atmosphere is actually a relatively calm but sinister one as well That may be why I didn’t find this read to be as frightful or as poignantly bloody as I first imagined even if some events happening might certainly give that impression Now I don’t know if that was Gaiman’s choice to not excess step too much into horror or if that is simply how the atmosphere turned out beingThere is no complaint to be made for the writing It is as always exuisite His choice of words are right well fitting and the uality of them beautiful It never feels like he is ‘trying too hard’ He has his style and a uite impressive one I shall saySnow Glass Apples could have been a full length novel I’m sure of it There is so much that could have been explored and developed in this especially the characters For instance while the ueen is not as bloodily jealous and mischievous as she usually appears to us in other books she isn't a doll either which makes that I would have loved for the story to contain psychological elements and descriptions for us to understand her motives and personality better If it were today I would have her heart cut out true But then I would have her head and arms and legs cut off I would have them disembowel her And then I would watch in the town suare as the hangman heated the fire to white heat with bellows watch unblinking as he consigned each part of her to the fire I would have archers around the suare who would shoot any bird or animal who came close to the flames any raven or dog or hawk or rat And I would not close my eyes until the princess was ash and a gentle wind could scatter her like snow I did not do this thing and we pay for our mistakes I am also not one hundred percent sure what Snow White really is A monster? Alright but how? A vampire? Could it be but who made her that way? A demon? What is her father’s role in this then? Her need for blood made me go with vampire that's for sure but no one utters that word Other than that the way various characters are acting is uite worth uestioning some but overall if you go with everything or believe what the main character thinks your reading won’t necessity many reflections if that is something you do not wantA great read It deserves to be read by you if you’re seeking a fairytale read that will surprise hook and maybe even spook you I know this is very short but honestly I couldn’t and didn’t even think once about stopping reading Neil Gaiman has that power on meYou can read it and that for free on here Enjoy ^^

    Holy crap on a cracker This short story by Neil Gaiman was creepyThe story is told by Snow White's stepmother She is afraid of Snow after she uh bit and sucked her finger She took the dried apple from me and began to chew it with her sharp yellow teeth“Is it good?”She nodded I had always been scared of the little princess but at that moment I warmed to her and with my fingers gently I stroked her cheek She looked at me and smiled — she smiled but rarely — then she sank her teeth into the base of my thumb the Mound of Venus and she drew bloodI began to shriek from pain and from surprise; but she looked at me and I fell silentThe little Princess fastened her mouth to my hand and licked and sucked and drank When she was finished she left my chamber Beneath my gaze the cut that she had made began to close to scab and to heal The next day it was an old scar I might have cut my hand with a pocket knife in my childhoodYeah Anyway the King dies and the stepmother is left with the vampire monster No they don't say she's a vampire but come on The stepmother does some stuff to get rid of Snow White but I was thinking you stupid your supposed to do this not that But then we wouldn't have the story right? This is NOT a story for children There are sexual situations and a little bit of a bloody mess And the Prince is totally gross DO NOT LET LITTLE KIDS READ THIS It's a short creepy little story and I'm glad I saw one of my friends review about this book You can read if for free online Snow Glass ApplesMY BLOG Melissa Martin's Reading List

    Find all of my reviews at HOLY SHITBALLSThis retelling of Snow White was perfection No other description Gaiman at a whole ‘nother levelGrowing up I wondered who the f%# would want to be this bitch When they could be THIS instead I always wanted to hear the story from the Evil ueen’s perspective You know the old saying “there are three sides to every story – her side her side and the truth????” I knew the Evil ueen couldn’t be completely at fault and 100% bad I mean doesn’t a little part of all of us want to kill Kristen Stewart Snow White???? Now that I’m a grown up I realize there are others who believe the same fist pound to my girl Shelby Thank you Neil Gaiman for giving us the true story EVERY DAMN STAREDIT TO ADD LINKY LINKSRead y version Read MeListen y version Hear Me

    Snow White's stepmother tells her side of the story in this Neil Gaiman short fantasy piece and she has a very different viewpoint about what happened Holy smoke is this ever dark and creepy and twisted If you never wondered why Snow White has skin as white as snow and lips as red as blood you should Free online here and Neil Gaiman is a gifted writer but seriously read this only if you're good with R rated perverse and extremely dark fairy tales And you're not alone at night

    5 wonderfully creepy starsThings are never as they seemTake one very creepy and ruthless Snow White add vampirism and necrophilia and you're sure to get your fix this HalloweenNeil Gaiman continues to surprise me every time I read something of his Snow Glass Apples tells Snow White's tale from the ueen's point of view And let me tell you that it's no fairy tale but a horror one The Princess is some kind of emotionless vampire who cannot be killed At the same time the ueen is but a victim in this story I found myself rooting for her praying that against what I know from fairy tales she'd survive and kill the monsterClearly I would not recommend this for children It is too dark and twisted But if you're older you would not want to miss Snow Glass Apples It's simply amazing It's Neil GaimanPS You can read the story for free here

    Once again Neil Gaiman enraptured me in his dark little world of princesses You may as well forget the Disney versions because Gaiman's princesses are never the damsel in distresses and his tales are not uite for the light hearted either His princesses are their own sole heroes but sometimes they can also be the villainsIn this case Snow Glass Apples is a very gritty very twisted retelling of Snow White What also makes it uite different is that this little tale is told in the perspective of the ueen's  My soul and my story are my own and will die with meThere is the old saying that says there are three sides to every stories Theirs yours and the truth of what really happened What if the ueen is not truly evil afterall? What if the girl with the black hair fair skin and red lips is than what she seemed?I felt very creeped out with this version of Snow White By morphing her into this girl with a mean streak and a sinister background Neil Gaiman has took away my image of a sweet innocent princess Perhaps even for good This dark hole of a tale is accompanied with a dash of Gaiman's enthralling writing style which made reading it even atmospheric Snow Glass Apples may be too short for my liking but it's a real winner all the sameActual rating a very high 35 stars The Snow White image is drawn entirely by Bahar

    I actually read this shortie two weeks ago but today I was looking at my shelves and I was suprised to see it had no review since I was 999% sure I had reviewed it Plus it deserves one so here I am trying to write a decent review Snow Glass Apples is a retelling of Snow White but it's not your typical retelling It's told from the perspective of the dear witch who if I'm honest with you was always my favourite character C'mon how could I not like her?I think it worked for me because of its dark atmosphere and because of the way the plot took Have you ever wondered why Snow White's skin is so pale and her lips so red? No? Well I did I was a cynic kid and I always thought about those things Did you ever want to punch this face? Gosh I'm clenching my teeth with just looking at that gifWell I always did and in this story too but for very different reasonsThis was my first read by Neil Gaiman and it's not going to be my last I like his writing style and how he does not shy away the darkness I decided to start with this one because it was short and I was warned his books are not for everyone but just with Snow Glass Apples I figured I like himRead the story for free here

    How I could not know that Neil Gaiman wrote an alternate version of Snow White's fairy tale I will never know As soon as I did find out I had it on my TBR of course and what better time of year to read this creepy little what if story than October and especially this close to Halloween? DI will not say much about the story since it's so short and my review would then spoil the fun but I will say this you will never look at innocent little Snow White the same way again and you will certainly not compare her to an innocent little lamb any BwahahahahahahaNeil Gaiman's writing style is again marvellous I really think that his love for fairy tales of any kind makes his renditions so wonderful and this little gem was no exception

    A short review of a short story I've not read Neil Gaiman before this and I read this online without illustrations which I assume accompany this story This was a very brilliant take on Snow White uite imaginative and different but with the kind of creepy sexual overtness that I would imagine could work very well in comic formnot for children
