Review: Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

User Review  - Glenn Van - Goodreads

Love the classic old English writing. Keeps the readers heart in their throat at times with surrounding storylines, making Sweeney Todd a wonderful read for those that enjoy a little horror of mind. Read full review

Review: Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

User Review  - Cinnamon - Goodreads

So far this is delightful. Heh, "delightful" This is the original text of the Sweeney Todd story from 1840-something. It was originally a serial in The People's Periodical. Very interesting...not an easy read (for me anyway). Read full review
