I'm really fascinated by the Salem Witch Trials of the 1690s and try to do as much research on the subject as possible. This ranges from Fiction to Non-fiction, and finding a good non-fiction account of this is hard.
My search continues as this was a slog to get through.
My main issue with this is the language and narrative flow. It reads more like an extended newspaper article than a book. The flow was much too choppy and I just couldn't get into the book.
It was interesting to get an in-depth account of what occurred in the 1690s surrounding the trails, but it wasn't enough to justify the length. I felt this book being more of a chore than a rewarding process.
