    The Body-Snatcher review à 100 The Body, Snatcher”To bodies that had been laid in earth in joyful expectation of a far different awakening there came that hasty lamplit terror haunted resurrection of the spade and mattock” A group of friends have a habit of getting together in a hotel tavern to drink and tell tall tales but sometimes the true stories are the ones that are frightening than those spawned from the most vivid imaginations The curiosity of one of the friends a writer is roused when he sees his friend Fettes brace an eminent doctor named Wolfe Macfarlane The words exchanged make Macfarlane flee and by his pale countenance make the writer believe there is much to his friend Fettes than he knows It doesn’t take the

    The Body-Snatcher review à 100 The Body, SnatcherFrankly I can't judge the anatomists of the time as far as stealing dead bodies is concerned They wouldn't have been able to carry out the research without them which in the long run only benefited humanity and religious superstitions and emotional attachments ensured they won't have enough of them otherwise Based on true incidences See Jeffrey's review for details

    The Body-Snatcher review à 100 The Body, Snatcher The Body Snatcher is Stevenson's fictitious retelling of Burke and Hare murders which shocked the Edinburgh society in the early 19th century Burke and Hare duo were employed by Professor Robert Knox a leading anatomy Professor to supply dead bodies for dissection But the ways and means these two criminals adopted to procure bodies to sell them to the professor were than appalling Stevenson has taken some of these incidents from Burke and Hare trials and created this short Gothic horror story The story started well setting a good pace for the dreadful developments The two characters of Fette and Macfarlane reminding me of Burke and Hare got a good grip on me I was taking a frightful yet curiously interesting rid

    The Body-Snatcher review à 100 The Body, SnatcherRobert Louis Stevenson takes an Edgar Allen Poe bent in this atmospheric short story As the title suggests this is the account of two medical students who are obtaining cadavers in an unscrupulous manner I found myself uite wrapped up in the narrative and I liked the twist at the endAfter participating in a discussion group on this story I have decided I looked at this story in far too simple a light I have upgraded my rating from 3 to 4 stars

    The Body-Snatcher review à 100 The Body, Snatcher It was a cras tibi which re echoed in his soul that two whom he had known should have come to lie upon these icy tablesI enjoyed the writing and the suspense in this very short tale Part ghost story part insight into historical study of anatomy it makes you think do we still benefit today from medical discoveries that were made at the hands of mercenaries and professionals willing to turn a blind eye Chilling
