The Crucible is a really old play by Arthur Miller about the Salem Witch Trials. In this play, there a lot of ups and downs in emotion. The story started as a simple accusation by a girl named Abigail. As the book progresses into 4 Acts, the lie is then shown through every person in the town. The book as taught me a lot about human nature. You would also understand this if you read the book yourself. But, I would recommend this book for people who are interested in tragedy and drama. I also love it for its variety of words and language.
