    1. Jack the ripper This was a book I picked up at my local library that I ve wanted to read it for some time But never got around to it, so I put it down for reserve There s a whole mystery to jack the Ripper If your a cockney or from London it s likely you will know the case inside out As it was one of those cases that made the history of every Londoner s heart Of how Jack killed those poor ladies of the night and walked into the mists of London never to be seen again.Throughout History loads of d [...]

    2. Okay little book about the Ripper murders, guess over the basic facts, the myths and mistakes which are quite plentiful , the suspects, and gives a bit if a flavor of Victorian East End London much of the last section is a catalog of fiction and non fiction books, appearances in popular culture, and websites, although it s a bit strange to hear the audiobook reader chirping out ISBNs and full URLs.

    3. i wasn t really into this until i got to the hilariously irascible end where jack s media presence was discussed why did no one else like this If you ve ever wondered what a horror movie made by a bunch of goths would look like, then I Am the Ripper 2004 might give you an idea An amateur French cast get killed, come back to life, and get killed again by a hooded figure who may be Death or possibly Skeletor Exactly how Jack fits into the story may be just the result of an opportunistic retitling [...]

    4. I m going to be honest, I like many people have a bit of an obsession for crime books, true crime especially and of course Jack the Ripper The reason for this of course is that we are all brought up with the story of jack from our pre school years and beyond, this is because ultimately the ripper escaped and committed what could be defined as the perfect crime I have read numerous books about the Ripper and I have to say that I am going to stop after this one Not that it is badly written or not [...]

    5. Like The Mammoth Book of Jack the Ripper this book starts by giving the bare facts of the Ripper crimes and then offers an overview of some or less serious theories about the identity of Jack the Ripper and the little and less serious fictional accounts dealing with him The difference between those two books is the The Pocket Essential is shorter mainly because it s not an anthology where various authors offering their opinions but just one author summing up the main points and commenting on it [...]

    6. I read this as an audio book, out of curiosity for the format I should have read it the traditional way, as I seem to retain information that way This was my first Ripper book, and I was impressed with the apparent depth of the investigations I d previously thought the crimes were generally passed off due to the social status of the victims This book is divided into sections the murders themselves, the victims and possible victims, the suspects, and a reader s bibliography It draws no conclusio [...]

    7. Jack was born just as the popular press was finding its feet and they helped each other inmeasurably He gave them murders to boost their circulation and they, in turn, made him into a legend No detail was too titillating or unpleasant to be left unreported or undistorted 9 The only character who doesn t seem to have tracked the Ripper in Sherlock Holmes is Mrs Hudson 82 He the Ripper has met Doctor Who s Doctor on at least two occasions The Pit 1993 and Matrix 1998 82 This book is a good compila [...]

    8. This is just what I was expecting and wishing a quick and dirty primer not only of the historical Jack the Ripper murders, but also of the victims both canonical and possibly related , the different suspects over the years, the various theories arguments and the seminal works that originally introduced them, and the depictions of Jack the Ripper in fiction, film, and television This is merely a starting point, a general introduction, but I was impressed by the organization and breadth of the inf [...]

    9. An informative compound of hypotesis and possible suspects about the Whitechapel murders and information about the victims background The book narrates how the case unfolded and which authorities got involved and what measures were taken to try to capture The Ripper There s also a section about media references of Jack the Ripper, which I found interesting It s a nice reference book and a good introduction for anyone interested in learning about Jack the Ripper s case.

    10. This was not a favorite of mine A lot of the book was him discussing other authors books and then proceeding to say why they are wrong He never really has a theory of his own, just that there is a lot of wrong answers out there I do agree with him that the answer will probably never be known but for a pretty short book it took me quite a while to get through.

    11. Good concise information about the Jack the Ripper case The book got tedious in spots when going through the various suspects and such as well as Jack the Ripper material ,such as books, films, TV shows, websites ETC.

    12. Una buena introducci n a la historia de uno de los asesinos seriales m s famosos de la historia Quiza una gu a bastante basica, pero de buena utilidad para aquellos que de Jack, solo conocen el nombre y que era un asesino.

    13. Rather pedestrian, but a good overview nonetheless Includes a far wider range of suspects than is usually the case, and is worth reading just for that Also contains a list of sources at the end that would provide a good place to start further reading.

    14. I thought it was well written and unbiased, the first half of the book was interesting and painted a vivid picture of the times and people of 1888, however I admit to being bored with the second half which presented an endless list of possible perpetrators and details about them.

    15. This was a rational, reasonable book which gave the facts of the Ripper cases with very little sensationalism That made the book very informative, but significantly less fun to read.

    16. A very good, concise overview of a very interesting case Got a bit long winded in evaluation of popular media as it related to Jack the Ripper, but the rest of it was a quick and interesting read.
