5.0 out of 5 stars Great Account of A Doctors Life in Victorian Workhouses
I think this would appeal to those interested in the Victorian way of life and it's very informative - although at times somewhat depressing - as an account of how those down on their luck had to manage in Victorian London. For those that find history lessons a bit two dimensional and dull, this e-book helps to bring notable aspects of Victorian London to life - highly...

4.0 out of 5 stars The needlessly harsh conditions of the Workhouse., 31 Oct 2013

This review is from: SICKNESS AND CRUELTY IN THE WORKHOUSE (Kindle Edition)
This book not only gives one an informed insight into the horrific conditions of life in the Workhouse but also of the bigotted mindset and profiteering of the inmates so called betters, i.e. the Guardians, Masters, Matrons etc. An essential read for all that are interested in Britrsh Social History.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gave me a good overview of the workhouse, 26 Oct 2013

Hard reading at times, just because of the old style of writing, but it was so interesting to read that I persevered and am glad I did. Interesting that even the doctors didn't seem to be appreciated in the workhouse.

I couldn't really get into this book. In fact, I'm not quite sure why I bought it. I think I wanted to understand the reasoning for a workhouse. Alas, it didn't work for me.

Sadly this shows that we haven't learned or moved on a great deal in the years covered by this book. How sad.

Wordy,but very interesting. Gave me an insight into what my poor grandmother & her mother might have endured. Thank heavens 'lunacy' is no longer an umbrella term for mental illness or depression.
