This is a huge doorstop of a book that I bought for 1 in a bargain chain I m interested in history particularly that of the late Victorian and Edwardian eras and especially in history pertaining to women s experience so this looked like a book I would enjoyI have to say however that after slogging away at it for what seems like forever I d only got a third of the way through the book and have now given up It s a rare occurrence for me not to finish a book I ve startedI had a few problems with this one the sheer overwhelming amount of detail is probably my major issue When writing history God or the devil if you prefer is in the detail how much should the writer give The reader needs enough so that they can gain an accurate picture of the era and the reality of living in it but not so much that it becomes distracting Unfortunately I that this book was very much in to too much detail camp so much so that I couldn t really see the wood for the trees and felt that it lessened my interest in the individual at its centreMy second issue was the leaps and connections the author makes stating that his subject would have thought felt or done something when we have no evidence that this would have been the case we can assume yes but that s really not how these leaps are represented in the book Again I felt that this weakened the writer s argument and made me take the book less seriouslyMy third issue lies with the subject of the book Joseph Silver who is not someone I wanted to spend time with certainly not the amount of time it would have taken to read the whole bookI therefore decided to stop reading it There s no doubt that it is an astounding act of research to have been able to trace an individual who changed his name and persona so many times throughout the length of his life but had the book whittled down the amount of background information and concentrated on a focused streamlined arc I would have been likely to finish it Invisible Jim Crow rare occurrence for me not to finish a book I ve startedI had a few problems with this one the sheer overwhelming amount of detail is probably my major issue When writing history God or the devil if you prefer is in the detail how much should the writer give The The Vault Guide to the Case Interview reader needs enough so that they can gain an accurate picture of the era and the The Castle Diaries reality of living in it but not so much that it becomes distracting Unfortunately I that this book was very much in to too much detail camp so much so that I couldn t The Song of the Mockingbird really see the wood for the trees and felt that it lessened my interest in the individual at its centreMy second issue was the leaps and connections the author makes stating that his subject would have thought felt or done something when we have no evidence that this would have been the case we can assume yes but that s Sir Halmanac and the Crimson Star really not how these leaps are Souls in the Great Machine represented in the book Again I felt that this weakened the writer s argument and made me take the book less seriouslyMy third issue lies with the subject of the book Joseph Silver who is not someone I wanted to spend time with certainly not the amount of time it would have taken to Judge Dredd Chronicles #19 read the whole bookI therefore decided to stop THE WALLPAPER CHASE reading it There s no doubt that it is an astounding act of SpongeBob Mix Match research to have been able to trace an individual who changed his name and persona so many times throughout the length of his life but had the book whittled down the amount of background information and concentrated on a focused streamlined arc I would have been likely to finish it

The exhaustive research that went into this book is impressive but it s uestionable if it was worth piecing together the life of such an insignificant reprehensible man In the end the only reason for publishing this tome is because Van Onselen believes Silver is Jack the Ripper but the evidence is circumstantial and not completely convincing A lot of assumptions about his thoughts and motivations seemed to be unfounded to meThe chapters on South Africa and German South West Africa were uite interesting to me because I haven t read much about these countries during this time But there was far too much detail about Pittsburgh and New York specifically the city s government and police force And it was tiresome to start a new chapter and to realise you first had to wade through a detailed portrait of the new country Silver had travelled to before getting to the point of where he was and what he was doing The book did offer a lot of interesting information about the Jewish diaspora from Poland and Russia as well as the criminal underworld of the Atlantic which I was unaware of but there was just too much detail and I was glad to be finished with this slog of a book
