    1. Фиксацията на Блох към Джак Изкормвача обхваща голяма част от активния му творчески период. Темата го е вълнувала с години и е направил доста проучвания по въпроса.Още през 1943 във „Weird Tales” излиза разказът „Yours Truly, Jack the Ripper”, който е превеждан и на български. Там Блох разви [...]


    2. Bloch was obsessed with Jack the Ripper. His short story, "Yours Truly, Jack the Ripper" is considered one of his best short stories and you trekkies might remember his screenplay for Star Trek in which he makes an interstellar traveling alien out of the Ripper. This novel titled Night of the Ripper gives Bloch a chance to expand his ideas about Jack in a more down to earth aspect. He adds a number of historical figures in the mix like John Merrick aka The Elephant Man as he create his own theor [...]


    3. I wonder if there's a sillier novel out there about Jack the Ripper. This one includes Oscar Wilde AND the Elephant Man, so I doubt it. I appreciated the epigrams illustrating torture and barbarity across all cultures and throughout all history; I appreciated the author's point that Jack the Ripper is not an isolated freak incident, but rather one case of many in the epidemic of human savagery. But the chapters are so short, the result is a distracting amount of epigrams, so these and the chapte [...]


    4. Può sembrare, guardando la copertina e leggendo la trama, che questo sia un saggio, più che un romanzo, cosa che ho pensato anche io. Invece no, è un romanzo, studiato nei minimi dettagli.Seguiamo infatti Eva, infermiera presso il London Hospital e Mark, dottore presso lo stesso ospedale, che si invaghisce di Eva non appena la vede. Tranquilli, il romanticismo e la storia d'amore praticamente non esistono.Perchè siamo nel 1888, a Whitechapel, nel momento in cui iniziano i delitti dello Squar [...]


    5. Jack lo Squartatore, il serial killer più famoso della cronaca nera, è un terribile criminale che continua, ancora oggi, ad affascinare morbosamente l'opinione pubblica. Nell'arco degli anni sono stati fatti studi e inchieste di ogni tipo ma la sua vera identità rimane tuttora un enigma. Robert Bloch, basandosi su fatti reali, racconta in questo romanzo tutti i dettagli della vicenda: gli atroci delitti, le indagini di Scotland Yard e un sorprendente finale che risolve in modo fantasioso tutt [...]


    6. Robert Bloch's 'Night of the Ripper' is a procedural murder-mystery thriller that brings the reader face-to-face with the dismal streets of Whitechapel, London, 1888 a.k.a. the hunting grounds of Jack the Ripper.'Night of the Ripper' tells the story of Chief Inspector Abberline and his investigation into the Whitechapel murders. In the course of his investigation, Abberline forms an alliance with Dr. Mark Robinson, an American physician with a budding interest in "disorders of the mind," or psyc [...]



    7. Robert Bloch was the first horror author I read as a young teen and he still captivates and entertains me. Scares the bejesus out of me at times as well.Great novel based on factual events.Well worth reading.


    8. Lorsque l'on me présente un tel menu, je ne puis que saliver d'avance… "Dans cette oeuvre de fiction, certaines libertés ont été prises à l'égard de certains personnages ayant réellement existé, mais les détails concernant les activités de Jack l'Éventreur proviennent directement des archives de l'époque".Whitechapel, 1888, c'était pas le père Nowel qui déambulait dans les rues, distribuant des cadeaux aux péripap… aux puéripa… aux putes !Non, dans le genre distribution, c [...]


    9. I thought this book was ridiculous.From the beginning, I was sure it was Mark. Honestly, I'm not sure what the point of his character was. It wasn't his voice that drove the book - we saw the perspectives of multiple characters. So what's the point? He should have been the Ripper, setting up Eva and the Russian guy.Bloch's story structure was weak, his characters uninteresting. He was so focused on peppering the book with as many famous names as possible, and yet, none of them actually furthere [...]


    10. Bloch must of done a lot of research on all the various Ripper theories, since he seems to touch on them all, whether they be royal conspiracies, Jill-the-Ripper, mad doctors, etc. He also does a great job portraying 1888 London, or more accurately the dark slum of Whitechapel, and all the accompanying paranoia that came as a result of the murders. I was also impressed with Bloch’s portrayals of various historic characters (Oscar Wilde, Arthur Conan Doyle, as well as many of the detectives and [...]


    11. I have read non-fiction accounts of Jack the Ripper that were more compelling than this fictionalized account. Still, there is something about the unsolved murders in Whitechapel in 1888 that is captivating.For some reason, the author felt it necessary to give cameo appearances to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and John Merrick. It didn't add anything to the story except to add a few extra pages.The thing that creeped me out was that each chapter was prefaced with a true torture method throughout histor [...]


    12. Stephen King recommended author.In 1981's Danse Macabre, King dedicated his book as follows: "It's easy enough - perhaps too easy - to memorialize the dead. This book is for the six great writers of the macabre who are still alive." The six listed were Robert Bloch, Jorge Luis Borges, Ray Bradbury, Frank Belknap Long, Donald Wandrei, Manly Wade Wellman.12/14/11. This was a good crime novel and fun take on the Jack the Ripper mystery with cameo appearances from notable real-life folk like John Me [...]


    13. Bloch proposes an interesting solution to the identity of Jack the Ripper, and he involves contemporary personalities (A. Conan Doyle, David Merrick) in the hunt. However, his solution is unconvincing. More interesting is his use of vignettes detailing the violence and inhumanity of our species at the beginning of all but the firs and last chapters, which can be taken to suggest that Jack the Ripper shares tendencies with all of us.


    14. Just finished this and thought it was a very good rendering of who could have been Jack the Ripper. You can tell how much research was done by Mr. Bloch. I like the personal story of Dr. Mark Robinson, Eva Sloane intertwined into the real story of the victims, suspects and lack of forensics of the time. The conclusion of who was the Ripper was interesting but I don't think really believable.This book is being retired as the binding is not holding the pages in anymore.


    15. Absolutely fantastic! Bloch has come up with a theory on the Jack The Ripper case that is not only entirely plausible but completely possible. Bloch has really done his homework, the historical accuracy is spot on and the Victorian atmosphere sets the scene for what could be the best book Bloch has ever written.


    16. Londres, 6 août 1888Cent ans avant que Norman Bates, Hannibal Lecter et leurs collègues ne défraient la chronique, le premier et toujours le plus célèbre des "serial killers" assassine d'horrible façon une jeune prostituée, puis une autre, puis une troisième Jack l'Éventreur entre dans la légende.On ignore toujours son identité. Et pourquoi, soudain, ses crimes ont cessé…


    17. A historical novel recounting Inspector Abberline's efforts to hunt down Jack the Ripper, making excellent use of description, historical slang and the various real people involved or suspected (and a number who weren't). The first time I read it I expected some more supernatural resolution, but on rereading I like it much better.


    18. I seem to have a thing for stories about mass murderers fictional and not. Very nice horror story based on Jack the Ripper. It's one of the first ones that got me started on reading more of his works.


    19. I love this book. It is one of my top reads and recommendations to anyone that is a Jack-the-Ripper affictionado. What just kills me are the little blurbs at the beginning of the chapter. Even as a total work of fiction, this is a fun book.


    20. Best, or most interesting, part is the tiny blurb atop each new chapter describing varieties of torture-through-the -ages.Example: "England A.D. 1531 Good King Henry VIII established a law to discourage poisoners. They were boiled alive."


    21. A decent thriller. Aged it definitely creaks a bit. Structured as a whodunit, which seems very 20th century somehow. Likely had a strong influence on Alan Moore's FROM HELL, as a lot of the same famous and unrelated characters show up: Wilde, John Merrick, etc.



    22. Uno dei più bei romanzi su Jack the Ripper, in questo romanzo Bloch mescola magistralmente il reale con la finzione, dando vita a un racconto dinamico, accattivante e ricco di suspance!



    23. Unfortunately a bit dull, especially for a writer like Robert Bloch. A shame as the story had a lot of potential, just didn't hold my interest.
