Very entertaining.

Being a fan of Washington Irving's works, "The Devil and Tom Walker" was particularly enjoyable. The story and the narrator were both outstanding. I'm less familiar with the other of the follow on story, Hurst of Hurstcote, and its author, Edith Nesbit. Nesbit was apparently a socialist and lived a dissolute life. She was mainly known for writing children's stories. Although a foolish woman in her personal life, she did seem to have a talent for writing; at least, Hurst of Hurstcote was good.

Love the classics

Really enjoyed listening to these stories. They are both kind of short, both together are just a little over an hour. So they are great if you need to kill a little time.
