A view into Mathew Hopkins mind

What did you love best about The Discovery of Witches?

It is rare that a non-academic like me gets a direct view into the mind of one of the most infamous people in English history. This is an excelent reading of what must have been a pamphlet, and I enjoyed it very much, and have listen to it many, many times.

What did you like best about this story?

Mathew Hopkins reasoning. Wacky, but in the seventeenth century mindset, it would have made since.

What does Felbrigg Napoleon Herriot bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I dont know. But his voice sounds authentic, and he fits the book well.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
