Ø Read ½ The String of Pearls or The Sailor's Gift by Anonymous º Nonostante il genere a cui appartiene ed il tema macabro, il libro non si sofferma a tergiversare con sordidi dettagli, bens mantiene intatto il mistero in modo quasi pudico , con perfetta compostezza inglese, riuscendo comunque a renderci partecipi delle crudelt ed efferatezze tanto di quel periodo storico quanto di quest avventura Il non esporre esplicitamente il fattaccio, tranne che nelle ultimissime battute finali, ma lasciandolo intendere al lettore pagina dopo pagina, rappresenta una manna santa per il coinvolgimento diretto e sto parlando di un racconto che bene o male gi conoscevo Questo non fa che confermarmi l eccellente lavoro svolto.

It s about industrialization and the plight of the poor Mrs Lovett s assistant works in a basement that he can t leave He works with machines and gets barked orders from a disembodied voice Lovett , as if the orders are coming from some kind of loudspeaker, not a person His choices are working himself almost to death, or being killed by his criminal employer to keep him from revealing her secrets Sweeney s assistants, Tobias and Johanna, also have to work relentlessly or get killed by their criminal boss who kills with a mechanical chair contraption , but, additionally, they have to serve customers in the most genteel way possible with a brimming smile on their face Sweeney and Mrs Lovett are also charming and well dressed Sweeney is gentlemanly and uses proper etiquette, and Lovett is matern Questo libro dell 800 racconta le truculente vicende di Sweeney Todd, un barbiere inglese che taglia ai suoi clienti qualcosa di pi che barba e capelli una storia che racchiude molti degli elementi tipici dei romanzi dell epoca un libro che d risalto all ambientazione, soprattutto all architettura del quartiere in cui si svolge la vicenda Temple un distretto giuridico popolato soprattutto da giovani avvocati e non lontano dal porto, quindi frequentato da molti uomini di passaggio I numerosi sotterranei che collegano i vari edifici danno l idea di una citt sotto la citt , in cui non difficile per Sweeney Todd tessere le sue diaboliche trame Il perno attorno al quale ruota la vicenda una classica storia d a travagliato che serve da collante alle varie sottotrame Questo infatti un libro fatto di molte storie, che servono I really wish the writing style were less verbose This would be a perfect if the pacing were better and 40% of this book were gone Having not seen any adaptation of this book, I went into it hoping for a sensational story and I definitely got that, but I think the musical will take advantage of the macabre premise.
