User reviews
This ebook reads like a historical novel. The style of writing is extremely interesting but often unnerving when recounting the brutally of period and the circumstances which led to these celebrated crimes. The book is comprised of eighteen chapters (seems like a compilation of 18 books) of which I’ve only read three. It’s a very very long read but if you like European history, particularly the Renaissance, you will love this book. However, be forewarned, the author is brutally frank and holds no punches.
At the beginning of his writing career Alexander Dumas researched and wrote about characters from history with a focus on their crimes and scandals. This collection includes all the other "Celebrated Crimes" books you could get separately. Don't bother with the separate books. This one has them all. It starts with the Borgias, so if you have been watching the BBC Borgias on TV this will give you some historical background that covers the facts you may miss in the series.
Was not as well written as his other works. Often seemed dragged out and boring. The digitization was not good; resulted in many misspelled words which required additional effort to determine the correct word to be used.
Dumas has to be one of the greatest historical novelists. The Celebrated Crimes is a record of the true crimes that he compiled and described and then later used in his novels. But, in true Dumas style the crime descriptions are little novels themselves. Great reading. I can never read enough Dumas.
Interesting to see where and how Dumas got his start. Not late in his career Dumas, but you can flashes of him peek through as it goes along. Lots of criminal cases we have never heard of that were probably the "OJ" of the middle 1200 to 1800's. All this needs is an editor to clean up some minot typos and formatting errors, and it will take its place in any book collection. I would have paid for this book if it had just a little editing to it.
Dumas was a fantastic writer for the time period.
Apparently, due to the "crimes", I've noticed that gossip, pamphlets, etc were the ENTERTAINMENT! Of course no TV, radio, 'puters, & social media wasn't around...
Poisoning, ie murder, was common...
And we think our society is nasty Lmao!
A very interesting compilation of crimes spanning centuries.
