Inherit the Wind Book #23

Inherit the Wind

This was book #23 for the Pop Sugar reading challenge.   This category was a play.  The story is actually quite interesting - based on a true story.   The story was the 1925 Scopes Monkey Trail.  A high school teacher was arrested for breaking a local statue against teaching Evolution.    It was probably one of the greatest and most sensational trials until that time.

I expected a little more from the courtroom battle between the Defense and the Prosecution.    I wanted more drama.  Maybe something is lost when reading in your head versus actually seeing it performed?  At any rate,  I enjoyed the play and I am glad that I read it.
