    This book is not about Jack the Ripper, it is about his five victims Written to remember five women who are usually just names in hundreds of books about the infamous serial killer, this book is an attempt to tell their stories and to remind us that they were once babies, daughters, mothers or lovers, who lived lives full of hardship and misfortunes The amount of research done by the author is imposing and she managed to recreate the lives of women who lived modest and ordinary lives in the Vi This book is not about Jack the Ripper, it is about his five victims Written to remember five women who are usually just names in hundreds of books about the infamous serial killer, this book is an attempt to ...

    I don t really know what to say about this book It completely blew my mind I am gobsmacked that there have been no other authors who have described the lives of the five so realistically The focus until now has really been on the killer himself and the poor women have never been given a voice But here Hallie Rubenhold does just that she gives these women their voices back She brings their unique, raw and gritty stories to life, she stands up for them, she gives them back their dignity, I don t really know what to say about this bo...

    I ve probably read far too many books on Jack The Ripper in my lifetime, but Hallie Rubenhold s book sounded intriguing Instead of covering the actual murders she puts together an excellent narrative covering the lives of the five victims, as well as opening reader s eyes to the social history of London in 1888 Much like Robin Jarossi s book The Hunt For The 60s Ripper covering eight unsolved murders in the 1960s Rubenhold treats the women killed with dignity respect.The book supplies I ve probably read far too many books on Jack The Ripper in my lifetime, but Hallie Rubenhold s book sounded intriguing Instead of covering the actual murders she puts together an excellent narrative covering the lives of the five victims, as well as opening reader s eyes to the social history of London in 1888 M...

    4.5 The first thing to know about The Five is that it is a book defined by its approach the second thing is that the approach is long overdue The facts are these in the late summer and autumn of 1888, from the end of August to November, five women were murdered in London s Whitechapel neighbourhood They appeared to have been killed in the same way, and presumably by the same person That person was never caught, but the persona that solidified around him though, of course, we can t know fo 4.5 The first thing to know about The Five is that it is a book defined by its approach the second thing is that the approach is long overdue The facts are these in the late summer and autumn of 1888, from the end of August to November, five women were murdered in London s Whitechapel neighbourhood They appeared to have b...

    Some time ago, I was incensed enough, after reading one of Patrician Cornwell s obsessive rants about the Ripper, to comment in my review of her book She has a rather naive view of Victorian London, and is quite insulting about the people who lived there they may have been poverty stricken, drunk, uneducated, illiterate etc, but no person deserves to be described as rubbish Of another book of hers, I wrote, she puts modern judgements on those inhabitants of Victorian London too drunk Some time ago, I was incensed enough, after reading one of Patrician Cornwell s obsessive rants about the Ripper, to comment in my review of her book She has a rather naive view of Victorian London, and is quite insulting about the people who lived there they may have been poverty stricken, drunk, uneducated, illiterate etc, but no person deserves to be described as rubbish Of another book of hers, I wrote, she puts modern judgements on those inhabitants of Victorian London too drunk, too poor, too uneducated In fact, considering the distain in which she seems to hold those concerned with the Ripper murders, it is confusing why she seems to so concerned about the murder of a series of women little known for their ...
