    Interesting narrativeThe book was not what I expected having seen the musical of the same name All the elements are there but the characters are vastly different I can see how this story would have worked as a weekly serial but it plods along in some places for that reason The author fails, where Dickens and Dumas succee

    The best penny dreadful ever If you know the location Fleet Street, Hen Chicken Court, Inner Temple as I do you feel at home with the book from page 1 on You can t put this book down the devilish barber, Big Ben, Johanna Oakley, Mark Ingestrie, Tobias Ragg, Mr Fogg, the madhouse and Mrs Lovett the pie maker What a set of chara

    For a penny dreadful, this wasn t too bad Three stars may be a bit generous, but the prose isn t as purple as other books of its ilk like Wagner the Werewolf.You learn early on that Sweeney Todd murders the people he shaves and that their remains are sold as pies in Mrs Lovett s shop Some of the backstory is revealed through as you

    It took me awhile to get into this novel it is Victorian Sweeney Todd is one of my favorite musicals and I have wanted to read this for awhile but it was rather laborious They made a lot of good cuts and changes to create the musical In the novel version, Sweeney is a straight up villain, no backstory is given to justify his murderous way

    Overall this was a fun read I will say that the first half of the book is very slow in presenting background information and the character of Johanna is very dry and boring though necessary to the story line and very prominent in the first half I was of course comparing the book to the movie musical which I have seen and it is very different Maybe it

    Save yourself, see the movie I have seen neither the movie or the musical so there were no expectations going in I was, however, familiar with the story as most are I hated giving this one star, but there was just so much I didnt like about it There was absolutely no back story given on Todd, he was already murdering people in the first chapter and we have

    I feel like I may be the first person to finish this book in 50 years, although whoever wrote the musical probably did and wisely ditched much of it I unfortunately read the book as part of a club activity and then we watched Sweeny Todd with Johnny Depp At least 12 hours of my life wasted.

    Very good Read it horrific but funny black humour and crime Great mysteries until the end
