    Gruesome!

    A book that shows mans inhumanity to man. Need I say more.

    Dead Dove

    This book is exactly what you think it is and tragically also probably what you hope it is. It's a slightly voyeuristic compendium of public executions, some of which are recounted in loving detail, others are an overview of methods used by different cultures and eras. This book is well-researched, engaging, and a quick read if you can stomach the content for long sessions.

    Great history lesson

    Regardless of the books subject matter, once you get past some of the boring beginning, it actually becomes quite interesting as to how things really happened in the olden days. How so many people went to their executions with dignity grace. And how a quick stop at the pub might have saved one individual.

    Good read

    It was a good read. It is good that it goes from the medieval to the present day.
