Lizzie ePub and PDF Available
I have been to Lizzie Borden's house and taken the tour of the day her stepmother and father were hacked to death with an axe; it was one of the creepiest tours I have ever been on. I have explored Fall River's cemetery, where the only claim to fame the now-sleepy town can make is that of the final resting place for Lizzie Borden. I find the story of the Borden tragedy fascinating, yet it was at times painful to get through this book.

To begin, it read like a high schooler's final history paper; there were many details but little narrative. Instead of investigating the story and journaling it back to us, Spiering seemed to just cut and paste ideas and concepts from sources and connect them with weak transitional sentences. The characters were never really developed, which allowed for most of them to get lost in retelling of the trial (turned circus) that flipped Massachusetts upside down.

Secondly, Spiering gives a potentially unique explanation for how Lizzie was charged and acquitted for the murders of her father and stepmother, and ultimately how the murders were committed; this version of the story is not backed up by any pertinent evidence, or really any chain of logic resulting from new combinations of old evidence. While Mr. Spiering may be well-versed in Borden-related information, I need more than his word in order to believe a theory.

Those items being said, I did appreciate the thoroughness of this account and can honestly say there wasn't a question I had that remained unanswered (other than the obvious 'So who really committed these acts?').

If you read this book, do yourself a favor and visit Lizzie Borden's house in Fall River and take the tour (and stay the night, if you're feeling brave) before you do.
