    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 This book is not about Jack the R...

    I think this book is absolutely wonderful It was everything I expected andI honestly had tremendous difficulty putting it down It is very clear that Rubenhold has done her research for this book, and she masterfully keeps a fine balance between telling the story of each of the five women s lives, and the pure, solid research and creating the atmosphere of what life would have been like at that particular time I thought the women s stories were very moving They were written with style, I think this book is absolutely wonderful It was everything ...

    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 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 stan...

    Hallie Rubenhold has come up with a fabulous piece of non fiction with this book, examine one of England s most notorious unsolved serial killing sprees The Jack the Ripper murders rocked London and the world in 1888, though no one has ever been formally fingered as the killer With the euphoria of Queen Victoria s Diamond Jubilee still lingering, a number of women were found slain in the streets of London in the summer and autumn of 1888 These women received some press, mostly speculative Hallie Rubenhold has come up with a fabulous piece of non fiction with this book, examine one of England s most notorious unsolved serial killing sprees The Jack the Ripper murders rocked London and the world in 1888, though no one has ever been formally fingered as the killer With the euphoria of Queen Victoria s Diamond Jubilee still lingering, a number of women were found slain in the streets of London in the summer and autumn of 1888 These women received some press, mostly speculative about their means of living, though few know anything about them Rubenhold seeks to change that by developing brief biographies of the five women and offering the reader some insight into the lives they lived before being found murdered While socio economic means surely sha...

    The Five tells the stories of the five supposed victims of Jack the Ripper Instead of the prostitues often depicted in the media, Hallie Rubenhold weaves a tale of destitution, addiction and poverty amongst the streets of Whitechapel and beyond Far from being fallen women , these women were mothers, daughters, wives and sisters Aiming to...

    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 Much like Robin Jarossi s book The Hunt For The 60s Ripper covering eight unsolved murders in the 1960s Rubenhold treats the women k...
