What the community says about The Crucible
- "I loved his book and I also loved the play. It's a great story about Abigail Williams who is an accuser during the 17th Century Salem. It's amazing how one person could cause so much trouble. I was so rooting for her to be found out. This book kept me entertained throughout the whole book. "
- "The Crucible is a classic. I think most people are familiar with The Crucible from a high school English class, but it really deserves all of the attention it can get. If you've never read The Crucible, or only read it in school, you should definitely take the time to read it for pleasure, at your own pace. With or without the context of McCarthyism, The Crucible is the pinnacle of literary exploration of the "witch hunt" mentality and there are timeless themes that everyone should explore."
- "The Crucible is a great play that I've read numerous times throughout school. The Crucible follows the Salem Witch Trials, and is an interesting book. You may not get all the information you're searching for about the history, but you get a first person (third person?) view into some of the events and way of life during this time period in Salem.""I was required to write an essay for the Salem witch trials, but I didn't have anywhere to start. I read a few things off the internet, but I needed more information. The Crucible was the perfect book for me, as I was able to figure out what a first-hand account would've been like of the trials. An awesome resource indeed.""The crucible is a classic tale from the Salem Witch trials. While not 100% historically accurate, it provides enough information for a jumping off point into the actual historic details of the event. Highly recommended for classes everywhere."
- "The Crucible is an amazing play that really brings the concept of community paranoia to life. It's one of the only literary works by a Jewish author that has broken through the goyim chokehold on public school curriculum to be included in required reading lists. It's even been made into a movie (starring Winona Ryder as the instigator of all the trouble). The Crucible has had a huge impact on modern literature and is definitely one of the best plays I've ever read, hands down."
