Audible Editor Reviews

Sir Washington Irving's story "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow", published in 1820, is one of the oldest American fiction stories still popular today. The half-hour short story follows schoolteacher Ichabod Crane in his pursuit of the rich and beautiful Katrina Van Tassel. When Ichabod can't get the girl, he finds himself alone on a country path at night…staring right into the empty neck of the headless horseman. Cindy Hardin Killavey's performance is warm and light-hearted. With expert enunciation and a leisurely pace, she guides the listener through this well-known adventure while her neutral accent highlights the story's more historic aspects. You just might just lose your head over this audiobook!
