LESS THAN 5 MINUTES LONG!!!

Virtually NOTHING that you wouldn't learn from the TWO MINUTE LONGER Gordon Lightfoot song.
Disappointing!

True story but duped by impulse

Short short short. It is my fault for pressing the download button too fast but this shouldn't be on here as short as it is for the price paid. Very fast telling of a true story that barely gets you grasped to its tragedy.

Are you kidding me?!

This is not a bug! It’s hardly even an essay. The entirety of this audio title spans a time of five minutes. The entire “book” Gives you less information than if you went to Wikipedia and read about these events. What a joke! $15.99 for one credit and I wasted it on this! Please!

oddly moving

I quite liked this, though I'm not sure why, probably the old school morality and heroism that are implicit in the story. I wish the very talented author would compile these short works of his into a larger work.
