Of Information About Victorian Londoninformation about Victorian London people and the attitudes of the times Although some bits of information don t seem fluid such as on the establishment of the police department in 1829 I appreciated it being there I only wish it was cohesive than it appeared in the text Besides the occasional istory lecture this book is compulsively readable Fans of Morrell will find Murder As a Fine Art is a definate read and should be added to their read lists as soon as possible This novel isn t like Morrell s other spy novels action adventures or my favorite Creepers It is so much and I can t wait to catch up on the other novels by Morrell I Camino a Auschwitz haven t yet read An essay written about past crimes mayave created a copycat beast I am not going to point fingers Images of Lawrence here but one of you wrote a really awesome review for a book that truly sucks a big fat one Your top notch review writing skills led me to believe this read was worth my time and it was most certainly not I want to be mad at you but can t because let s beonest you are amazeballs You wrote a review that became its own story and that was the book I wanted and expected to read My ass is beyond jealous right now I wish you would pass along a little bit of that talent to us lesser reviewers who are struggling to build coherent sentences from the muddled mess between our earsI originally thought this was going to be a murder mystery I didn t realize it was an overly detailed book about a specific time in ผู้ชนะสิบทิศ เล่ม 1 history using characters as props Good on you for doing your research but bad on you for giving up the mystery in the firstalf of the book The only reason I stuck it out to the finish was because I was The Forgotten Fairytales Forgotten Fairytales hoping there would be a plot twist or a secondary mystery that would justify that amazing damn review Nope Instead I spent the backalf of the read with over the top characters and a story that would just not uitTwo stars to a book that was lucky enough to be liked by a five star reviewer This novel set in Victorian London uses Thomas De uincey controversial author of Confessions of an English Opium Easter and On Murder Considered as One of the Fine Arts as the central character in this novel De uincey s essay On Murder dramatised the infamous Ratcliff. Di tutti a causa dello scandaloso pamphlet L’assassinio come una delle belle arti in cui lo scrittore aveva avuto l’ardire di lodare la perizia omicida di John Williams Eppure proprio uel libro provocatorio che all’epoca lo aveva reso una celebrità rischia adesso di costargli molto caro Perché ualcuno a sterminato un’intera famiglia replicando fin nei minimi dettagli gli omicidi di uarantatré anni prima È inevitabile che De uincey diventi subito il principale indiziato non solo della polizia ma soprattutt.
