The String of Pearls is uite simply pure reading pleasure if a story about murders enslavement cannibalism and a demented barber floats your boat In this case it certainly floats mine The four stars I ve given it here indicate my RF or reading fun uotient I have a wee bit about plot and Mrs Lovett s delicious pies at my reading journal anyone who doesn t want to know ought to skip it and keep reading here Here s the thing I read this book primarily as an example of the penny dreadful as part of my ongoing history of mysterycrime fiction project I have going this year and I have to say that looking for any sort of literary merit here is pretty much a waste of time While it s a great example of what the working classes were reading and while you can catch a lot of negativity among the poor for the upper classes and the use of mechanization throughout the story it should probably be read just for fun and entertainment Storylines tend to be dropped as do a few characters here and there and the major focus is actually on the bad guys in this book It s melodrama pure and simple delightfully gruesome and it provided me with hours of great joy while reading It was another I lost myself in and well I like when that happens Just to be clear I ve seen the play I ve seen the 1936 film based on this book and I ve seen the BBC adaptation which is also uite gruesome and should not be watched while eating lunch as I discovered and this the original is as different from all of its adaptations as it can possibly be So when readers complain that the play is better and the book did nothing for them well they re actually comparing apples and oranges This book would be perfect for anyone looking for a good old fashioned escape read or a novel to relax with over the summer while at the beach or hanging out poolside It goes very uickly despite its hefty length and it s great macabre fun
