A Relatively Light-hearted Read on a Relatively Heavy-hearted Controversy
Matthew Chapman, a descendant of Charles Darwin, just by that fact would seem to come to this task with some special penache. However,he never uses it as any special tool for pushing his views; he's just a talented writer with journalistic background, and that part shows.Was this review helpful?

I would like to say that "40 Nights and 40 Days" is a "balanced" review of this very sensitive trial and subject. Of course it isn't; nothing is.
And since Matthew Chapman writes his account with intelligence and insight, the book obviously favors one side over the other. He can't help it.
Chapman's touches of humor throughout the book keep the trial from becoming sheer drudgery as it trundles on for 40 days. A delightful read of a controversy that has been an albatross mainly around America's midsection for over a century. A controversy that some claim doesn't need to exist. Someday . . .
