Hard to believe was written almost 200 years ago

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is a such a great short(ish) story. The descriptions of the people, scenery, and life in the Hudson valley were excellent. Then there's that neat and very ambiguous supernatural element in it as well.

I read this story back in high school eons ago. Loved it then, love it now. It almost feels contemporary despite its age.

Btw, reading it again made me realise the Disney version of this got the look of Ichabod Crane just right.

If you could sum up The Legend of Sleepy Hollow in three words, what would they be?

Entertaining, humorous, lively

What other book might you compare The Legend of Sleepy Hollow to and why?

Like Rip Van Winkle, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow gives an enchanting view into the dynamics of everyday life in colonial times.

What about Curtis Sisco’s performance did you like?

Sisco does a splendid job giving distinct voices to each of the characters and does so with attention to the story flow.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Listening to this book brings back happy memories of being read the story as a child. I couldn't help but laugh at the foibles of the character.

Any additional comments?

As you can tell from my earlier comments, I am quite enthusiastic about this experience. If you purchase this version, you will be, too.
