Twisted History

My Rating: 4/5

Author: Howard Watson

There is nothing better than grabbing a warm cup of tea while reading about 32 of some of the the world’s most famous, psychotic, evil and darkest human characters in history.

Twisted History is divided into the following chapters: Treachery & Torture, Saints & Sinners and Murder & Mayhem. Twisted History is packed with disturbing coloured photos and illustrations, fact files and interesting side notes.

I enjoyed reading Twisted History and found it very gripping. I highly recommend this to anybody who is interested in learning more about the darker side of human nature in history.

I personally would have liked just a bit more information on some of the people covered in this book, but each to their own. I’m sure everybody is interested in a different person featured in this book. Every section was interesting and I learned a lot.

The 32 profiled in order are as follows:

1. Brutus

2. William Wallace

3. Gilles De Rais

4. Vlad The Impaler

5. Richard III

6. Guy Fawkes

7. Benedict Arnold

8. Adolf Eichmann

9. Pierre Laval

10. Lavrentiy Beria

11. Judas Iscariot

12. Nero

13. Joan Of Arc

14. Tomas De Torquemada

15. Thomas More

16. Rene Goupil

17. Rasputin

18. Adolf Hitler

19. Mahatma Gandhi

20. Martin Luther King, Jr.

21. Bernie Madoff

22. Blackbeard

23. Dick Turpin

24. Thug Behram

25 John Wilkes Booth

26. Billy The Kid

27. Jack The Ripper

28. H.H Holmes

29. Al Capone

30. Kazuo Taoka

31. Joseph Stalin

32. Lee Harvy Oswald
