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.
Mathew Hopkins reasoning. Wacky, but in the seventeenth century mindset, it would have made since.
I dont know. But his voice sounds authentic, and he fits the book well.
