The Crucible

This product is temporarily unavailable. Please try again later. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Publisher's Summary

In the rigid theocracy of Salem, Massachusetts, rumors that women are practicing witchcraft galvanize the town. In the ruthlessness of the prosecutors and the eagerness of neighbor to testify against neighbor, The Crucible mirrors the anti-Communist hysteria in the 1950s.

(P)1994 L.A. Theatre Works

    I love reading, both in print and in audio. I'm not a native English speaker so please excuse any spelling/grammar mistakes.

    "Food for thought"
    What made the experience of listening to The Crucible the most enjoyable?

    A star-studded cast for a play that's become a classic in its own right. As an analysis of human nature and fanatism it remains thoroughly current.

    "Too fast"

    The actors gabbled so fast that I had trouble discerning one whispering voice from another, and don't listen to this as you fall asleep because you end up straining to find out what is being said in between screams and barking dogs! A real shame.

    "Getting through American Literature"

    We use these audible books to supplement the literature our high school daughter must get through, so we are actively listening, rather than listening soley for entertainment. The accents took some getting used to and the speed at which the lines were spoken made it difficult at times to follow, but we found the recording helpful.

    "Dramatic Recording"

    This is a wonderfully done recording with good actors. However, This recording is not complete and does not follow the script to the T, but that draw back is overshadowed by the actors. They bring the play to life the way it is meant to be. This recording even though incomplete is superbe.

    "Abridged Version"
    What made the experience of listening to The Crucible (Dramatized) the most enjoyable?

    As an English teacher I enjoy listening to well performed plays...and so do my students. The actors perform admirably.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Crucible (Dramatized)?

    Stacy Keach is magnificent as John Proctor. "My Name man, my name."


    Any additional comments?

    I wish there was a notation that this is an abridged version of the play.

    "It is abridged."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I bought the book to read along with the book and it does not follow the book. Extra lines are added and some are out of order. It is a good performance, but I wanted it to be the book.

    "A Book of Hatred"

    I was assigned this book as a school read and ended up enjoying it a great lot. the characters are very diverse and unique and the story was riveting all throughout. The audio book was a great help to get into the mood and feel of the book and helped to keep the book moving onward. The actors voices are very soothing and emotional.

    "Audio recording hard to listen to"

    The story is great, and the actors are great, BUT during the dramatization there are times when the actors are whispering or talking softly. Those times are really hard to understand what is being said. I ended up buying the book because I was frustrated with missing lines.

    "very fast!!!!"

    this is a very good dramatization! (you feel as though you are watching the play instead of listening to it) but it is very very fast and hard to follow along with the book at times because they skip portions.
    also the story is very upseting to listen to, i felt on edge after i listened to this, but it's well written and gets the point accross.
