Once I picked this up I could not put it down & it goes to show how truly barbaric the human race really has been & still is.
The wife did not want to listen when I started reading passages out aloud as she found them too graphic & disturbing & was I suppose too far removed from her romantic novels.
For those with an interset in history with a leaning to the gruesome - This is the book for you
What is rather disturbing is is what is described in the beginning is still be used to this day in parts of the world. It also proves that physical punishment does not stop crime, but crimes seems to increase.
A note on the kindle version: no proplems whatsoever.

A very informative book but really won't do much to enhance one's faith in human nature its pretty grim quite terrifying in fact for if its happened before it can happen again.Published on 19 April 2014 by Lees
An excellent book written well.Historical facts accurate.There is no ghoulish dwelling on the misery of torture and gives facts and figures in a very readable way. Read morePublished on 14 Jan. 2014 by Mr.M.Wolfson
Quite a good read. Whilst certainly better than a shallow novel I would not classify this as a historical masterpiece. Interesting but not memorable.Published on 17 Dec. 2013 by Robert Atkins
