Legend of Sleepy Hollow (version 3)

Book cover
By: (1783-1859)

Everyone knows the story of the Headless Horseman but perhaps you, like me, did not remember what a marvelous story teller Washington Irving was. He observed human nature closely and like any good humorist, lets us laugh at our own silly and superstitious sides through the joy of having strangers be the ones to display them. If you, like me, have only vague and muddy memories of this story, you owe it to yourself to listen and laugh along with the rest of the world. My High School English teacher who could never interest me in 'literature', would be proud.

The narrator was great, perfect tone for this kind of story. Listened to it all the way through and it had my full attention the whole time.

The story is great but I've never gotten through it all. Without fail I fall asleep during it. So when I was sick and had insomnia for days I went and put on sleepy hollow and sure enough.., it lived up to it's name! It's a great bedtime story and I do love his voice even if it is unusual. It's a good fit for the story and he's a great audiobook reader. It's just he lulls me to sleep! Sometimes that's exactly what I need though

I agree, I had forgotten what a charming tale this is, the reader, marvelous.

A great old ghost story that I'd always heard of, but never actually read/heard. The reader has a wonderful voice and helps set the mood. I enjoyed this quite a bit.
