The Alienist Summary Î 108 Derer who will kill again before their hunt is overFast paced and riveting infused with historical detail The Alienist conjures up Gilded Age New York with its tenements and mansions corrupt cops and flamboyant gangsters shining opera houses and seamy gin mills It is an age in which uestioning society’s belief that all killers are born not made could have unexpected and fatal conseuences. Prior to the twentieth century persons suffering from mental illness were thought to be alienated not only from the rest of society but from their own true natures Those experts who studied mental pathologies were therefore know as alienists At two am on March 3rd 1896 someone comes pounding on the door of John Moore s grandmother s house in New York City Not drunk nor particularly sober when called from his bed John is immediately whisked away by carriage to the site of the still under construction Williamsburg Bridge on the East River On arrival he is greeted by none other than Theodore Roosevelt yes the future president Still unsure why he is there or why his friend Dr Kreizler whose very carriage bore him there is not in attendance John casts about and around until finally he lay eyes upon it the brutally mutilated body of an adolescent boy It will not be the last one he seesAs I was reading this I often thought that it read like an actual historic event being retold as a story After all Mr Carr first dipped his pen in the nonfiction inkwell Scattered throughout this story are actual historical figures which belong in that time and place such as Teddy Roosevelt H H Holmes and Jesse Pomeroy And that pen of which I speak spills magic as Carr deftly transports you to an atmospheric late 19th century New York City complete with the sights street vendors hawking their wares police corruption and brutality unwashed malnourished children running wild sounds hooves on cobblestones and smells uite disgusting reminders of time before modern day sewage systems one would expectIt is a first person narrative told through the perspective of John Moore reporter on the police beat as a recollection of events past I know there are readers out there who felt that this robbed the story of some of its tension and suspense I mean clearly John had to survive to tell the tale but it did not have the same effect on me There were plenty of other characters that Carr had me caring enough about to ensure a tight fisted grip upon the page One such character is Dr Laszlo Kreiszler psychologist or as they were then known an alienist Kreizler at Roosevelt s reuest and with his assistance pulls together a team including the above noted John as well as two detectives trained in and excited at the prospect of using new and modern methods such as fingerprinting and handwriting analysis as well as Sara Roosevelt s secretary who has ambitions to rise well beyond her current role in the NYC police department ambitions which though stubbornly determined to achieve she recognizes are not even open for consideration as an appropriate role for a woman in 1896 Kreizler then leads this team together with a smattering of some of his colourful I am looking at you Stevie personal aides through the process of what we today would term as psychological profiling All very heady and compelling stuff As the profile coupled with conclusions drawn from the physical evidence available begins to take on the aspect of a real person the team closes in on an absolutely horrific monster I have also read some negative feedback on how this story comes to a conclusion Some feel it was rushed or they were cheated of further psychological details but again I cannot share those views Given the circumstances the details already unearthed and the political climate of that time and place I found the ending realistically consistent with my expectations of what would in all likelihood actually happenIf you are looking for an intelligent high spirited in depth look at the mind of a sadistic serial killer as well as a stroll through the late 19th century streets of New York City then you should most assuredly pick up The Alienist It is a thumping good read

The Alienist Summary Î 108 When The Alienist was first published in 1994 it was a major phenomenon spending six months on the New York Times bestseller list receiving critical acclaim and selling millions of copies This modern classic continues to be a touchstone of historical suspense fiction for readers everywhereThe year is 1896 The city is New York Newspaper reporter John Schuyler Moore is summoned by his friend. This book was FIZZING which according to my 19th Century Art of Manliness glossary means excellent top notch Well fizzing it was Through most of this book I had it rated at 50 stars as I was absolutely captivated by the writing the characters and the plot and loved how they were all deftly tethered to a great depiction of late 19th Century everyday life I would describe this as a psychological thriller and detective mystery set in the 1890 s and blending a Sherlock Holmes type investigator ie Dr Lazlo Kreizler and a Hannibal LectorJeffrey Dahmer like serial killer straight of today For me what set it over the top good was the healthy dose of historical fiction thrown in for interesting background It just gave the book a uniue interesting feel as it had the darkness and grit of a present day hunt the serial killer story but with the customs constraints and daily rituals of 19th Century New York life In addition to the excellent job the author did in establishing a sense of place I also really liked the way Carr incorporated into the narrative several real life murderers that were contemporaries of the killer in this novel This added a sense of authenticity that upped the creepy on the rest of the plot For example the book refers to Dr HH Holmes whose murders were depicted in The Devil in the White City Murder Magic and Madness at the Fair that Changed America and Jesse Pomeroy who was depicted in Fiend The Shocking True Story Of Americas Youngest Serial Killer The main character Dr Kreizler was excellent abel focused a great vehicle to carry the plot forward The pacing was good and mytstery solving aspects of this novel ie the piecing together of clues and discussions of what they mean about as good as it gets There is real talent in this work and I was greatly impressed by the read My one gripe is that I thought the ending while in keeping with the tone of the rest of the book was a little flat I was hoping for a better payoff and ended up with a slight case of literary blue brains when I didn t get the release I was hoping for Thus I lowered my overall rating to 45 stars because nobody likes blue brains Still I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this to fans of the genre or just someone looking for a great story I will definitely be checking out the seuel Nominee Bram Stoker Award for Best Novel

I guess I just need than a mammoth miniseries version of a steampunk era CSI episode I ve never enjoyed that show what little I ve watched of it because the minutia of forensic science and criminal psychology utterly bore me when they are not tied to interesting themes characters with depth or a rich atmosphere the entirely insipid protagonist made me entirely frustrated the pedestrian prose made me want to scream the fact that the cover is the most evocative thing about a novel that should have had atmosphere to die for made me feel like I was dying inside each time I turned the page only to discover 100% plot mechanics and 0% anything of interest besides the I suppose page turning plot the whole experience of reading this book was excruciating however if you are a fan of CSI then this is probably a 4 or 5 star book for you enjoy
