User Review  - kreierso - LibraryThing

This is a great reference book for students to use when studying archeypes. However, it is meant for advanced readers but the ebook function allows students to download as an MP3 or read the text in different languages. A quality reference source that will not become out of date. Read full review

Jane Garry is in denial about female psychopaths which is what Snow White, Hansel and Gretel and Cinderella all contain-a murderous heainous mother. Her ridiculous unfounded idea that these charcaters were created by men-they were not-they existed long before the brothers grmm collected them travelling all around Europe to collect them are BASED ON REALITY. Perhaps Ms. Garry is in denial of her own darkness. MY mother is an evil Psychopath who tortured me and my father with her Psychopath daughter JUST AS IN THE Folklore that has existed for millennia-THEY knew what women were capable of; today it isn't PC. Hypocritically correct much nowadays?
These Folktales have mothers represented for a reason-psychopaths do not just come in male form and female psychopaths manipulate their husbands to go along with heinous acts when the husbands are abused themselves and confused by the lack of empathy in their wives-they've married the devil herself and have NO clue how to be as cruel, cunning and "SELFISH" as THE MOTHERS.
Their are a lot of mothers who hate their children for being favored by their fathers-some are more psychopathic than others but there are plenty just visit any daughters of malignant narcissistic mothers on the web or female psychopaths.
So you receive ONE star for ignoring a very REAL problem-mother-daughter abuse!
