Favorite Adaptations: Snow, Glass, Apples by Neil Gaiman

Jhane from the Philippines submitted two entries to the Favorite Adaptations giveaway to win a copy of Kill Me Softly by Sarah Cross. This is her first one. I will share the other later this week.


One of my most favorite adaptations or versions of Snow White is Neil Gaiman's Snow, Glass, Apples.

It may not have been directly revealed that it is a retelling of Snow White, but it is more than implied that it is.

It is dark and a really different version that you would really think otherwise of Snow White, and maybe, just maybe, side with the Queen this once. It will make you think a lot - how it made sense that Snow White is actually this or that [I do not want to spoil!] and that you'd realize you have been fooled by the many beautiful versions of the fairy tale.

I enjoyed it a lot, seeing the story on a different perspective and having a lot more to consider and think about. i was immersed in this particular short story for a short while, and it has made its mark in my mind. I am pretty sure everyone's going to like it, if not love it. :)
