Grim Tales by E. Nesbit – A free audiobook
Narrated by Peter Yearsley
Grim Tales is a collection of short stories written by Edith Nesbit and follows a cast of characters as they travel through a world where our deepest fears are hidden in the shadowy corners and the salvation we strive for is within arm’s reach, it is just a matter of mustering enough courage to reach out in the darkness. This collection of stories paints a vivid picture of humanity and its numerous flaws but also shows the glimmer of hope that we all have within ourselves.
Edith Nesbit crafts a modern collection of fairy tales that deals with contemporary issues that we as a society deal with but sprinkled with a dash of dark fantasy that will quell the thirst of those who love dark fairy tales. This free audiobook is narrated by the talented Peter Yearsley. Grim Tales is exactly what it sets out to be, a collection of short stories that might be unsympathetic at first but cradles and calms it listeners during the end of each tale.
