Description

A detailed account of one of the strangest and most shocking episodes in American history, written by the author of "The Lottery".

Stories of magic, superstition, and witchcraft were strictly forbidden in the little town of Salem Village. But a group of young girls ignored those rules, spellbound by the tales told by a woman named Tituba. When questioned about their activities, the terrified girls set off a whirlwind of controversy as they accused townsperson after townsperson of being witches. Author Shirley Jackson examines in careful detail this horrifying true story of accusations, trials, and executions that shook a community to its foundations.

A true historical horror

This audiobook was just what I wanted to start a few weeks of creepy, Halloween-themed reading. The true story of the witch hunts of Salem Village is more horrifying and fascinating than any fiction. What caused a group of pre-teen girls to accuse their neighbors of witchcraft? What made Salem's adults accept their claims so readily, with no solid evidence? Shirley Jackson's book is a great introduction to those questions and has definitely inspired me to read more about Salem.

Gabrielle de Cuir's expressive narration enveloped me in the narrative. She was especially good at portraying the women accused of being witches - whether they defied the authorities, laughed at the charges or eagerly implicated others
