    "Best Thirty-Seven Minute Fairy Tale on Audible"

    Rip Van Winkle is the tale of an unhappily married man on a journey towards idleness married with impunity. Irving's a master of language whose created a lexical texture describing time and place. The narrator, Curits Sisco, achieved the appropriate meter and emphasis; however, sometimes he rushes listed sections inappropriately or slows too long for character's voices. Rip Van Winkle easily fits into the tradition of short classical fantasy. Other stories like it include: The Facts Concerning the Recent Carnival of Crimes in Connecticut by Mark Twain, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson, Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll, or A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens.
