    EBOOK The String of Pearls or The Sailor's Gift This book was deliciously creepy I loved reading the story that inspired the film and learning that the tale was originally far complex and had other narrative arcs running through it Whilst I was at first hoping that we would get the brutal scenes of Todd killing his victims that the film boast there was actuall

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

Two and a half stars Being a fan of the Sondheim production I decided to read the original tale While it had a few moments of dark humor Sweeney being caught beating a child turning to a customer and saying he was simply trying to teach the child that he should devote his few spare hours in reading the Bible as well as the general macabre plot Sweeney the barber kills his customers which are then made into pies and sold by Miss Lovett this version of the plot was simply lacking First there was no motivation for Todd to be murdering at all Unlike the musicalfilm there is no backstory given He is already murdering at the start and the plot deals primarily with the police investigation into his affairs Rather than related character subplots a large portion of the text has Todd trying to sell a pearl necklace And there s no interaction between Todd and Lovett within any of the presented scenes of the text Rather disappointing rendering of the story after being exposed to the exceptional Sondheim version
