    "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."

    "Two generations since the release of his most famous works, including ‘The Crucible’ and ‘Death of a Salesman’, Arthur Miller came out of retirement with ‘Mr. Peters’ Connections’. Like his earlier works, ‘Mr. Peters’’ focuses on the mundane and everyday of a single person’s life, finding the heartbreak and beauty in a man’s relationship with the people in his life, and with himself. I was pleasantly surprised that, although in his 80s, Miller has not lost his sharp sense of humor. This play is gorgeous and fresh. "

    "I wanted to show my niece that learning history can be fun. Instead of having her watch a documentary I wanted to find a fiction book that piqued her interest and showed her that even stories about the old days could be interesting and still hold relevant."

    "This book is set back in the time of 1929 the era in which we experienced the Great Depression. It’s story revolves on one family but tries to display other emotions taking place in the environment. Tough read and hard to follow but interesting nonetheless."

    "I really like that The Creation of the World and Other Business doesn't shy away from exploring difficult and deep themes. The Biblical setting and allusions give it a great deal of weight and adds elements to the story that reveal how and why we tell ourselves stories and myths. The humor in this is wonderful--it is sharply satiric in a way only Miller can write."
