    One thought on “Ripper”

    1. It s Harry Potter meets Angels and Demons Which sounds like a great story idea if your plan is to replace your editor s irises with dollar signs In practice, this young adult novel suffers from being a little too familiar for anyone who s read the most popular of fiction Ripper is the story of Carver Young a bullied orphan with skills His notable companions at the orphanage are a brilliant, know it all girl who doubles as a love interest and a socially clumsy, misunderstood, red headed bully Eve [...]

    2. To make a long story short I totally loved this book This is by far the best YA book that has come out this year and in a long time as well I loved the characters and their interactions with each other, and the whole story line was great as well It was fast paced, and, while, yes, it was predictable, adventure stories usually are and that doesn t take away from my love of this book It was also a good guy read and books guys can enjoy are very few and far between in the Young Adult genre I liked [...]

    3. I grabbed this book from the YA section of the library because the plot seemed amazing and intriguing The plot may still be amazing and intriguing I couldn t force myself to finish it but the writing style was not Reading this book reminded me of years ago when I was reading my first chapter book The chapters are annoyingly short and have abrupt cutoff points after reading the first 5 or so chapters in about as many minutes, I quickly scanned to the back of the book and was not surprised the cha [...]

    4. This book was _so good_ Every time I was between commutes when I read , I wanted to get back to it It was serious and well crafted, the are characters complete, and overall the book had a gravity to it that reminded me of books written in the past Definitely feels timeless I worried that the ending would disappoint me as compared with the rest of the book , but it wasn t bad at all Really, I can t get over how much I enjoyed this book Of course, it being YA, there are some contrivances, but the [...]

    5. This may be a case of disappointed expectations.I was first drawn to this book for the obvious reason that stories of Jack the Ripper interest me I think it s the morbid fascination of an unsolved mystery who was this man that did these horrible things, and what compelled him to act So the large, bold word Ripper across the book with a slash of blood diagonally across well, it draws the eye, dunnit And the blurb seemed interesting An established fan of YA titles, I thought it could be an interes [...]

    6. So Stefan Petrucha has let old Saucy Jack out of the garden shed, this time to run around New York and get chased by a teen with steampunk gadgets out of an old Wild Wild West TV script This is a kind of YA The Alienist as it is the mid 1890s and so the NYC police commissioner is Teddy Roosevelt, who is mostly antagonistic to the young hero, Carver Young groan with me at the name an orphan who wants to become a detective, for probably the same reason that Hermie the Elf wanted to be a dentist Pe [...]

    7. Carver Young wants to be a detective, so when he is adopted from the orphange in 1895 by Detective Hawking of the New Pinkertons agency, he is happy Several other children in the orphange have been adopted by families in the same circle, his friend Delia by a news reporter There has just been a Jack the Ripper like murder, and certain segments of New York society, especially Theodore Roosevelt, the Police Commissioned, are concerned Hawking puts Carver to the task of finding Carver s father, in [...]

    8. I ve always been interested in the Ripper murders I m not a lunatic, I promise so when I found Ripper for a few bucks I took it and ran The book follows fourteen year old Carver Young, a wanna be detective with a knack for picking locks, as he s forced to leave his home at Ellis Orphanage and adopted by the famous Detective Hawking Carver is also trying to locate his father after finding a letter from him at Ellis and trying to solve the newest Ripper style murders.I absolutely loved Ripper, the [...]

    9. I have this obsession with fiction Jack the Ripper novels I find everything about the man absolutely fascinating I will actively go out of my way to find and read anything on him, so when I say I only have one real complaint about the book it means a lot because usually I find many things to nitpick Like I said my only real big complaint with this book was the grudges held between orphans Carver and Phinneas honestly felt like they were 5 year old siblings screaming that the other was lieing Wit [...]

    10. Wow I had a feeling this book would be great, but I had no clue it would be as wonderful as it turned out to be I m in love Can I have books starring Carver, Delia, and Finn Carver Young is just a poor orphan with a lock picking skill and a love for mysteries, when he gets oddly adopted by a retired Pinkerton agent, Albert Hawking Hawking plans to teach Carver how to be a great detective, although his methods are quite crazy Craver is brought into a secret society of detectives and is encourage [...]

    11. As a fan of alternate histories think The Alienist, another book featuring Teddy Roosevelt as a main character, or The Man in the High Castle , this is one of the craziest examples of the genre that I have ever read To wit and really, don t read these spoilers if there s a chance you might read the book I m giving up EVERYTHING here view spoiler 1 Jack the Ripper is the main character s father This becomes obvious pretty early in the book.2 Jack the Ripper almost kills Alice AND Teddy Roosevelt [...]

    12. A severe case of reader book incompatibility If I d been half my age, I d have given Ripper double the rating I m giving it now, because the classification on this one is wrong Despite the serious subject matter, Ripper is NOT a young adult book, it s a children s book The writing style, the plot on rails, the transparent characters, I would ve loved this book years ago, but now that I m looking for something a bit serious, meatier and grittier, all of it just irks me.Actually, part of my annoy [...]

    13. The genre of this book is adventure survival, mystery, and realistic fiction The main characters of the book Ripper by Stefan Petrucha are Carver, Delia, Finn, and Mr Hawking Carver young an orphan from Ellis orphanage wants to be a detective because he wants to find out who his real dad is One day his dream comes true when Mr Hawking comes and leaves coordinates of the Pinkerton headquarters at Ellis orphanage Once at the headquarters Carver shows Tudd Septimus his letters from his father After [...]

    14. I had just picked up a few books on my way home, and thought this looked interesting What I didn t think was that I would be rushing to finish it in four hours The entire plot is completly original, even though Jack the Ripper has been used before.The phenomenon of serial killers is as interesting as it is terrifying, and Stefan Petrucha uses the terror to his advantage The characters are multi faceted and not cookie cutter and one dimensional.One of the biggest plusses would have to be the fact [...]

    15. Personally I would have liked to rate this book a 4.5 The start was not slow at all which I liked better because I am a little impatient with some books The first chapter was amazing and made me want to keep reading right then and there I was on the edge of my seat the whole entire time I was reading and was sometimes reading till 2 00am My personal opinion on this book is that it was great and well written but not quite perfect.

    16. As seen on Bookosaur4.5 5This book is bloody fantastic See what I did there Bloody fantastic, since it s a novel about Jack the Ripper Oh, hey I didn t expect you to continue reading after my word play there Your persistence could only mean one thing you really want to read a review Alright, alright .I loved this book to pieces You re still here Seriously Even after that one Though I have many of those bad boys up my sleeve, I will nonetheless crack on with my review Eh Eh Novel about detectiv [...]

    17. Not what I expected in the least I had no idea it was teen book I thought it was yet another take on Jack the Ripper, which it was But I thought it was an adult horror not a teen adventure Lots of silly parts which may have entertained a younger version of me But this take barely kept my interest and too many juvenile twists.

    18. First off I would like to say I would have given this 3 stars if I hadn t at one point predicted the mystery Ripper is a story about a kid named Carver young that takes place in the 1800 s Carver is an orphan from Elias Island and one day runs into a man named Albert Hawking This Albert Hawking figure adopts Carver and puts him under his mentor ship The story continues on and Carver starts to find out his connection with a serial killer the Ripper Something I didn t like about the book is the pe [...]

    19. Eleven women murdered all by one guy Ripper by Stefan Petrucha is a historical fiction book about the son of Jack the Ripper The whole story about the ripper is true but we would not know about his son because we do not know who the ripper actually is This also has some historical facts in it That is why I would call it historical fiction Caver lives in an orphanage but he is getting too old to live there any So he has to be kicked out or get adopted at the reopening Before he is kicked out he f [...]

    20. I admit, I almost didn t read this book I m not a big fan of horror and too much gore turns me off as a distinct lack of creativity and I fully expected Ripper , based on the title, genre, and cover, to be full of flying limbs and meticulously described mutilated bodies A book about Jack the Ripper It seemed inevitable Thank goodness another reader Mara D read the book before me and dispelled my fears Given her glowing review and tempted by the intriguing description, I decided to take the leap. [...]

    21. Wow A truly amazing murder mystery what if historical fiction I absolutely loved this book Intriguing and fast paced from the very beginning, Ripper is, in my opinion, one of the best YA books published this year Carver is a resourceful young man, inquisitive, witty, and everything an amateur detective character should be And he admires all of the best and brightest literary detectives And Hawking has the classic, yet perfect, humor that all foul tempered, old mentors are supposed to have But un [...]

    22.

    24. True confession time when my name was called at Penguin s What s Coming panel at San Diego Comic Con last month, I was a little disappointed, as just a few books earlier, they had an early release of the latest Dresden Files book, which wasn t yet out in stores Still, the idea of an upper middle grade book about Jack the Ripper was an intriguing premise, and my kids go through books like potato chips I put it off for a few weeks, because middle grade isn t normally my comfort zone in reading, es [...]

    25. A lot of people on this site seem to REALLY like this book, so maybe the problem is with me I mean, I wanted to like it I m a sucker for Jack the Ripper stories, and Teddy Roosevelt is my favorite President A fictional story pitting the two against each other should be right up my alley But, in the end, I just found this one to be annoyingly over plotted and convoluted Carver Young, the 14 year old orphan hero of the book, goes on a search for his father, which ends up getting him enlisted into [...]
