Wonderful Classic

The narration was enjoyable and you can't beet a classic Washington Irving story. The cost was inexpensive. Quick listen of an american classic.

Not worth my time.

As short as this was, it truly was not worth my time. if I hadn't been sitting in traffic, I wouldn't have bothered listening, but I figured I would just give it a try.

An Amazing Tale

I absolutely loved this book. It was a great story and exceptionally well read. What a lovely setting. I felt pity for Rip in the beginning, and felt sorrow for him in the end.
