Timeless

I return to this play time and again. Always relevant. There will always be a heavy price to pay for failing to embrace society as an extension of family.

Simply Outstanding

This provided great assistance to my study of the play. I am able to use this as clear reference when I am in short of time to read the book itself.

The narration was clear and it was easy to follow and distinguish which character was speaking.

terrific play, great performances

This was not a title I knew anything about, but since I've enjoyed many Arthur Miller plays, I decided to take a leap - and I'm so glad I did. Emotional turmoil, secret and lies, in a family and a neighbourhood after World War II, and many of the ideas come up in future plays.

Twenty One Pilots.

This was amazing. I found out about this book from my favorite band. Twenty-one Pilots. Their name was inspired my this book, amd the decision that had to be made here. Tyler apparently took the weight of the decision and applied it to his personal life.
