This book was intelligently written and beautifully drawn. The best graphic novel I have ever read period. All the characters are well developed and the authors let you into each one of their psyches. I just hope the movie with Johnny Depp and Heather Graham is as good.

A great book for anyone who is intrigued by the Jack the Ripper case. This book offers a very possible explanation to the awful tragedy that once befell WhiteChapel. It's very believable in that interwoven throughout the illustrated novel are actual facts from the case files. This is an absolute must have.

This novel is not for the weak of stomach or the easily offended, but those who are game will find themselves greatly rewarded. Trying to sum up this monumental work in such a limited space would be foolish, so I won't try. Suffice it to say that Moore's dialogue and plotting are ingenious, Campbell's artwork is stunning, and the historical-footnotes appendix is greatly informative. Don't be put off by the fact that this is a 'funny book.' Comics can be serious, too, and this one is seriously good.

A graphic novel that is horror at its finest. There aren't any words I can muster than can match what I felt after reading this story. Absolute brilliance.

I read this book expecting a dark and sometimes ironically humorous story. This book is well-written and a good story, but it is incredibly effed up. With a graphic sex-scene in the first six pages, and an equally graphic dismemberment scene. I can only say now that this book is as beautiful as it is disgusting. I would recommend this book to anybody who has a strong stomach and is not afraid of what lurks in the dark areas of the mind.

Amazing book. Trumps Watchmen and V For Vendetta as Alan Moore's best work to date, in my opinion. Artwork is excellent, emitting the ominous, vague atmosphere to get you right in the mood of late 1800s. The story is convincingly told, and you really want to believe it's all real, that William Withey Gull, Queen Victoria's physician, was Jack The Ripper. I can't tell myself he wasn't after reading this. By the end he really was quite insane, but still a fascinating individual. Many characters draw your sympathy, from Gull's carriage driver Netley to the five prostitutes slain and mutilated. The interweaving threads of semi-factual events involving Prince Edward and his marriage to a prostitute that supposedly ignited the entire chain of events is brilliantly conveyed. The depth of Masonic information is very interesting, regardless if it's fact or fiction. Inspector Abberline is a great, human character, and his relationship with the supposed psychic of the Queen, Mr. Lees, is very real and convincing. The case of Jack The Ripper has never been more interesting or entertaining. One of my favorites.

I've read From Hell three times through, and it's one of the best works I have ever read, but I see from the sample provided that it is not suited for reading and absorbing on the Nook. Do yourself a favor and read the print version instead
