    Clever Cautionary Tale

    Clever plot twists and captivating style makes this short story a must read classic. As a cautionary tale of being careful what you wish for, especially when the devil is involved, it is no surprise that this yarn is the basis of both a 1941 film that was remade some sixty years later in 2001; each adaption bringing an originality to the words in this marvelously written book. One might easily imagine Stephen Vincent Benet's charaters which appear in these pages, especially Mr. Scratch, coming to life in an episode of Rod Serling's 'Twilight Zone' or 'Night Gallery'. Even so, read the book and view the movies for an enjoyable multi-media experience.

    The Devil and Daniel Webster

    This book is very well written book. The Devil and Daniel Webster contains two short stories about The Devil and Daniel and one short store about the fool-killer. The fool killer is about a man who kills all fools. If you can answer his simple question he will spear your life. His question is: How can humans not be fools? The answer is when a human dies. When a human dies he or she can¿t do anything, their-for a human cannot be blamed or be a fool. The Devil and Daniel Webster is about a trail that took place. An unknown guy would pop-up and ask to approve an issue in your life. He would do so if you approve but you will be forced to pay him back using your soul. Daniel Webster was feed-up with him so he started a trail with the Devil. The rest is for you to read. People who like fantasy, sharp changes, to be scared, and want a laugh should read this book. This book is an all around book. There is something for everybody in this book. If you don¿t like the first story you¿ll most likely like the third story because they are basically apposite. The beginning of the book describes the background. We are in the Civil War period. There are wooden houses and there is slavery. However, the book isn¿t about slavery, it¿s about the Devil and Daniel Webster. If you don¿t like that type of book you should read the fool-killer. The fool-killer is almost like the movie Chuckey. The story is funny and scary but also has a point. So you learn something. What do you learn? You must read the book to see.

    Excellent Story!

    This was a well written story about the triumph of human intellect. A man makes a deal with the devil for his soul and when the devil comes to collect, the man changes his mind. Thus enters Daniel Webster--the smartest man in town. He decides to represent the man as his lawyer against the devil. Entertainment abounds in this adventure.
