Publisher's Summary

Was there really a Headless Horseman? This dramatic story will draw you into the life of Ichabod Crane as you ponder the question. The Washington Irving classic has been rewritten as an "edge of your seat" audio production with updated language for today's audience.
A thrilling story any time of the year. Not intended for the faint of heart.

Pretty good with some flaws

This is a pretty good reading of the book that has been dramatized with several actors. At first, they aren't quite sure what accents they want to do: Swedish, German or Irish! Then it pretty much centers on a Dutch/Swedish accent for the rest of the book. The background music is muffled and could really use a cleaning up to make it more distinct. The actors that portray the leads do an excellent job though and make the entire store quite worthwhile. A good listen for Halloween.

If it ain't broke -

Why this story needed to be "updated for todays audience" is beyond me. Washington Irving wrote a classic, and his words are sheer poetry. This version is poorly acted (since when is there an Irish accent in Sleepy Hollow- the story always refers to "Dutch settlers." Oh, there could have been an Irishman or two in Tarrytown in the late 1700's - but Mr. Irving does not mention any in his book). The narrator has not even a hint of forboding in her voice - she sounds as if she is reading a happy tale for tiny tots. Nothing scary about this program - except the title - at least that wasn't changed. Maybe it's just me, but this does not do justice to the original story. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
