Takes a while to get used to the writing, the language and spelling. I'd also heard of the story of the murder mentioned in the book, sounds a bit like Sweeney Todd except set in a pub with a cauldron of boiling water.
Not even remotely my speed. Here, in list form, are my reasons:

1.) 64 pages that covered five years. That's just cramming in too much.
2.) No character development. At all. See number 1 above.
3.) The spelling and language is super-outdated. Not Deloney's fault, obviously. I'm sure it was all perfect back in the day. But, it was very tough to get through. For me. In the twenty-first century.
4.) (view spoiler)
