      This is some silly pop-history, but I still enjoyed reading it. Is it accurate? Who knows. There's no way to check because there are no foot/endnotes or bibliographical references. It doesn't really matter though, because it's entertaining to read about the terrible things that aristocrats did to people in the 18th century. They really didn't give two shits about the part of the population that was worth less than 10,000 pounds a year. If that meant abducting young women newly arrived in London, [...]

      This is a historical book. I didn't enjoy this book even for a moment. The book tells of a secret society in England known as the hell fire club. Most of the members were aristocrats, includibg tge novelist Laurence Stern, author of Tristan Shandy. This is wbat is alleged in the book.The Organisation practiced black magic, they also conducted sexual orgies in tbe club. The members rangedy from politicians, poets, novelists etc. They members were divided into two, the superior members and the inf [...]

      The true story of wealth and privilege at its most debauched; the kind of tale the word 'rollicking' was coined for. Orgies, black masses, an underground lair that most Bond villains would sell their cats for, and a wit worthy of Wilde. It also paints the War Of Independence in a sinister new light. A lot on the Gordon riots and the political upheaval of the times - but unfortunately, most of what actually happened during their services has been forever lost; secretary, Paul Whitehead burning th [...]

      Provided me with a bunch of information. It was interesting, a quick read, but informative. Not sure how much has been fact checked or confirmed, but the material gave me some helpful leads to follow and further research.

      Good Research and Intriguing BookThe Hellfire Club is/was one of those topics that people like myself have wanted to know about. This was a time when the nobility held a position that could hardly be touched by the common man. They could get by with so many atrocities and they did. The ranks of The Hellfire Club included those high up in the government influencing the politics of its time. They deflowered a large number of young women under the mantle of immorality. The Marquis Dr Safe would hav [...]

      Not the sort of thing I normally read, but an aquaintance loaned it to me so I gave it a shot. I didn't hate it, but I'm not in any hurry to read it again, either. Bawdy to the point of being soft-core pornography, it's ribald take on 18th century Britain is disturbing in it's nonchalant sexism. Apparently the book is historical, but the complete lack of footnotes, bibliography or documentation of any type leaves me sceptical. The cover proclaims it "the underground classic." Apparently "classic [...]

      Learn about the roots of the American Revolution in this very interesting history book. Learn how a few sexual deviants shaped the modern world as we know it. Learn about key members of the Hell Fire Club including Benjamin Franklin. Learn how the political break up of the club influenced American colonists to break away from the British. Quick, interesting read especially if you are interested in learning the history you were never taught in school.

      Oh heavens I completely forgot about this book! I believe my reaction to it at the time I read it was a shock of identification though in a sense very me-specific. I adore the function of play in the world so very much. However I feel that investing time into preserving what you despise by enshrining it inside yourself via obsessive thought no matter how deeply rooted and supposedly unconscious or whatever probably serves against one's aims. Well, now I'm just writing. oops

      I really enjoyed reading this book but I found it hard to discern how much of it comes from reliable sources and how much of it comes from hearsay or imagination. Mannix isn't very clear on where he gets all of his information. Still though, an entertaining read.

    10. Callum Dickson on said:

      Like occult shit and sleazy 19th century gentlemen? Read this book because that's the only reason you'd need to.

    11. Stephanie Chadwick on said:

      Couldn't get into it, and a lot of it seems like complete bullshit, due to no references or bibliography.

    12. Tim Avers on said:

      Mortifying. It's as though we had no idea what bodily fluids the powerful were swapping behind closed doors.

      If you are into psud-masochism, this is your bookt sadomasochism, sorry some of you. An quirky look back at some naughty boys who have great power in Great Britain historically.
