Well written, but slow

While I found the book well written and well researched, I was strangely uninvolved. There were certainly some very interesting moments, but to my mind there were just as many dull spots. Lyons certainly evoked the William Hartnell era of Doctor Who.

Breathtaking

It's been 20 odd years since I read the crucible, I'd loved the story of childhood bullies causing mysery to all those around them by simply telling tales. However I'd read it not knowing the historical truth surrounding those events. Now with this book and reading of it the past is brought to vivid life and the true horror of the Salem witch trials is brought uncomfortabley home in all it's bloody gore. A fantastic novel well read. Possibly one of the doctors best ever historical tales

It's a good book for any full on dr who fan

It is a good performance from the talker but it isn't exactly a book for thrill seekers as it lacks much action and excitement....😔.However if you like dark eerie tales then this is the book for you because although the storyline is not really the most thrilling adventure ever it still manages to maintain a scary and haunting sense throughout the story. A good book for any dr who fans determined to listen to them all but don't expect much of a action and fight scenes from this book😀.
