    Takes a while to get used to the writing, the language and spelling I d also heard of the story of the murder mentioned in the book, sounds a bit like Sweeney Todd except set in a pub with a cauldron of boiling water.

    THOMAS DELONEY from 1543 to about 1600Deloney in his time was well known as a chronicler of many well known songs, ballads, and poems.In about 1612 his first novel, Thomas of Reading was published, Thomas of Reading , also called The Six worthie Yeomen of the West , is really the story of a successful and rich Guild of Clothiers who flourished in the Day s of King Henry the First.The wonderfully pleasant style of writing and amusing vocabulary tells us how these clothiers came to the attention of the King, who, realizing the importance of these artisans to the commonwealth of England called them to court in order to hear of their trade and to know if any new legislation would help them in their success.And so it came about that a new, sole, measurement for length, the Yard, was declared legal all over England Then, whatever was called cracked money was declared illegal, and finally, that clothe thieves, if caught, could be hanged without further procedure.The brutal murder of Thomas of Reading by some rogues is described quite shortly in the mid st of the story.However, for romance, a sweet but tragic love story is also woven into it.But my review should have been less about the contents and about the form of this novel, as it is considered the first so written in prose in England, as before it was usual and fashionable to present literature in rhymes as poetry.For me this is a very interesting and pleasant reading experience, one of the books, I almost finished in one stretch.

    Not even remotely my speed Here, in list form, are my reasons 1 64 pages that covered five years That s just cramming in too much 2 No character development At all See number 1 above 3 The spelling and language is super outdated Not Deloney s fault, obviously I m sure it was all perfect back in the day But, it was very tough to get through For me In the twenty first century 4 view spoiler What, may I ask, is so damned pleasant about being boiled alive hide spoiler

    This 80 page book written in the old English of 1599 took me far longer to read than it should have done The story of a group of cloth merchants, their frequent visits into London and the subsequent murder of Thomas was quite hard to decipher at times After several attempts to find a copy of this obscure book, a fellow GR 1001 list group member posted a link to a copy freely available to the general public on the University of Michigan website and this is what I read from Not a huge fan of reading books on my laptop, this was one reason I took so long.Having said that, I did enjoy it, and it was an experience similar to reading Chaucer and interesting to read about London and the merchants various homes during that time.

    This is the oldest piece of literature I have yet read, being from 1600, and besting Gulliver s Travels by about 125 years It s included in the later editions of 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die The spellings are certainly a challenge but it gets easier as one reads farther and accustoms to it It is made fairly tolerable by it s short length It was kind of fun to read something from so long ago It even has a horror story chapter in it which I thought the most interesting How Thomas of Reading was murdred at his hoasts house of Colebrooke, who also had murdred many before him, how their wickednes was at length reuealed Cha 11.

    Oh how I enjoyed this Sigh

    I really hoped to enjoy this, but, it really is an early novel and as such is a bit rough There s a religious moral overtone to some of the book, but really not as much as I would have expected for the time period There are a couple really good bits in it that do make it worth reading There is a part where a woman is being chided by her husband and she states that he wouldn t be happy no matter what she did If she s friendly, she s a flirt, if she s straight faced she s a prude, if she stay s at home she s melancholy if she goes out she s a gadabout and so on That is very paraphrased, the paragraph is much better in the book Additionally, there s a portion that leaves one to wonder if it is the inspiration for the character Sweeney Todd An innkeeper and his wife have rigged one of their rooms over the kitchen to dump whoever is in the bed into a boiling pot of water to murder people Yes The story states that they ve fixed the bedside table and the bed to the floor and that when they pull two pins that floor gives way and dumps the sleeping guest into boiling water There are some similarities here, much in the way Sweeney Todd s barber chair is portrayed as dumping the body down below Overall though, most of this is a bit of a slog to get through I m glad it wasn t overly long.
