On Murder Considered As One Of The Fine Arts
On Murder Considered as One of the Fine Arts (Little Black Classics #04) - Thomas de Quincey

Thomas de Quincey states at the start of the essay that it is a transcript from a meeting of a mysterious group of gentleman who are fascinated by murder. The rest of the essay is then the transcript and elaborates on several murders and the murder of philosophers.

Based on the fact that people are usually (to some extant) fascinated by murder, I was really looking forward to it. However, I didn't think it was as hilarious as the description told me. The humor was rather bad or maybe sometimes I just didn't get it. I don't think I would read a complete book by Thomas de Quincey.
