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.

A classic worth reading

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

Descriptive, interesting, classic

Who was your favorite character and why?

Ichabod Crane - very well drawn and not designed to be particularly likable.

What aspect of Curtis Sisco’s performance might you have changed?

His performance wasn't bad, but I wasn't bowled over. I suppose there wasn't much of a chance for him to "put on voices" as there wasn't much dialogue.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It was relatively short, so I listened to it in two sittings (perhaps "walkings" is more fitting) over the course of one day. It was good enough to warrant one sitting.
