Some of the terminology required a dictionary on hand. It was interesting and informative, shutting down the theory that serial killers are a modern invention.

Very interesting..takes you back to 1700 to 1800's. Some of the stories have a sense of humor, as they go back and issue crime in an almost funny strange stories.

This is an excellent book, and very well researched. I like it because it covers the life and crimes of criminals who were all, in a way, small criminals, but each remarkable in his or her own way.

They were not all remarkable as criminals, but their life stories are remarkable, and some of them really were remarkable in the manner they turned to crime.

The book is well-written and easy to read. I found the stories to be fascinating. Many years back, I read a book on the deadliest murderers of the twentieth century. These are stories of criminals who lived in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, and their stories are well-worth reading.

This book was recommended to me by a friend in England. I started it, but couldn't finish it. It was written in the last century, I think, and the language is a bit stilted. That usually isn't enough to make me quit reading a book. I majored in English lit in college, so the language isn't a problem for me as long as the book is interesting. This one isn't. In fact, I kept wondering why my friend thought this was so good. It was so boring I kept nodding off while I was trying to read it. I never did finish it.

it's in the public domain and i downloaded it after reading a brief blurb. Irving became fascinated with crime after hearing his father talk of sitting up late discussing murders: "rob history and fiction of crime, how tame and colorless..." an introduction to 19th century criminals of all sorts.

I usually enjoy this type of book, and it was engaging in some ways. Short chapters on various criminals and the intrique of crime. It is a quick read if you are into this style and does cover many criminal histories. Not to indepth but more of a light read with a bit of information on each subject.

This has to be one of the most boring books I've ever read in my life. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone! Don't waste your time or money on this purchase. This is time out of my life I'll never get back.
