really liked it
Read in October, 2010

This is a great play and wish I could actually get to see it on stage someday. I really liked the scenes from the court room; it reminds me of the court scenes in the novel To Kill a Mockingbird because they are both very dramatic and suspenseful scenes. I also enjoy how this play can apply to basically any time period. It does apply because this play also speaks about how paranoia can cause hysteria throughout a society. It speaks about paranoia because the play relates to the Salem Witch Trials and how everyone in Salem, Massachusetts started accusing anyone for being a witch and caused the deaths of 19 people. I would highly recommend this book to anyone, especially people studying about the Salem Witch Trials.

Lanier Excellent work with this one, comparing to Harper Lee's semi-contemporary classic as well as your work on "War-Worlds" and the others!!! Keep up the awesome work!
