    One thought on “Seven Wives and Seven Prisons; Or, Experiences in the Life of a Matrimonial Monomaniac. a True Story”

    1. "Some one has said that if any man would faithfully write his autobiography, giving truly his own history and experiences, the ills and joys, the haps and mishaps that had fallen to his lot, he could not fail to make an interesting story." Well Mr. Abbott, I'm not sure that's true for everyone, but it's certainly true for you!I knew nothing about Seven Wives and Seven Prisons, but with chapter subtitles like "My first and worst wife" and "My own son tries to murder me," it's been a long time sin [...]

    2. Unlike the vast majority of the 19th Century novels that inevitably describe a love at first sight that grows to a long and happy life of matrimonial bliss, this story tells the other side. The illogical first scenario is as unreasonable as this second and I can only assume that the truth lies somewhere in the middle. Seven Wives and Seven Prisons; Experiences in the Life of a Matrimonial Maniac is proposed to be a true story. Age has taught me that my fellow man (or woman) can do extremely stup [...]

    3. I read this book because I discovered from a family member who does genealogy for our family that the Sara in the book who runs away to marry Mr. Abbott and had a child with him, was my great, great grandmother on my Mother's side of the family. I wanted to hate this Mr, Abbott, as he has been presented to me by this family member as a scoundrel, but I must admit I found his book quite amusing. he sounded like quite a con man. Sarah went on to be a mother to ten children, I think three of them w [...]

    4. Great read from the pastReally enjoyed this story. Even written long ago, it was somewhat still relevant to current days and times. He finally learned his lesson in the end, and got hus reward.

    5. this book is hilarious rogue and scoundrel come to mind even as you read the title and chapter headings. also, jane austen comes to mind (would she had seen into the heart and soul of the villainous Wickham). a light and humorous read. kudos to kehinde whoever you may be. thank you project gutenberg and librivox

    6. This would be 3 stars had it been longer. I'm not sure whether this is actually autobiographical or merely allegorical, but either way an interesting story. The poor author describes how after being cheated on after marrying his first young love, he failed to obtain a legal divorce but rather a mere 'amicable separation', and how this and a subsequent 'matrimonial monomania' led him to be brought up on bigamy charges throughout the several states of New England. It really serves as an interestin [...]

    7. Abbott's imaginative account of this man's almost reckless pursuit of love and/or marriage is both humorous and tragic. It demonstrates a bitter perspective on the pursuits of men and women. Readers will resonate with some of the situations and will rail against others. It is hard not to feel the ludicrous sense of compassion for the characters while at the same time marveling at their lunacy.

    8. The author casts blame for his misfortunes on everyone but himself, he is always the victim. Some of the tales are so outrageous that believing them is difficult. One wonders how he could make money so quickly when he was unable to stay in one place any extended length of time. One plus the book has going for it is that it is from another era and a read can be justified if only for that reason.

    9. I found this story most interesting. It grabbed my attention at the beginning and kept me up late at night. Reading about love and marriage from the point of a man running from the law back in the 1800's was a very unique story line for me. I recommend this book to everyone, there is no sex so nothing to offend anyone other than a fool for love.

    10. Things to be learned from this book:- Do get a proper divorce if you are separated from your spouse.- After going to prison once, stop whatever it was you did to get there, even if it was just illegally marrying.

    11. Well written but the main character has a skewed morality and an attitude of entitlement. Just proves that entitlement is not a 20th century problem.

    12. This one was just FUN!!!!I read it in one sitting! It's one of those stories about a sympathetic rogue, rascal, and general all around Character. Highly recommended!

    13. This was very interesting and quite amusing in places. I have serious doubts as to the veracity of the tales, but I'm not interested enough to do any research into the matter. Fun and light.

    14. Just started listening to the audiobook of this novel. I'm on Chapter 6 - pretty dang quirky, but pretty good nonetheless.
