    1. Pull up a chair and have seat Do you want a drink Please, I insist I ve been drinking for hours As you can see, I have a fire going in the fireplace, to ward off the chill of a winter you can already sense around the corner It is dark outside the window The nights come fast as the days shorten The wind is howling That is the wind right Its shriek sounds almost alive, almost human Here, have another drink Scoot closer to the fire I want to tell you a terrifying story The 2016 election cycle Wake [...]

    2. The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is the old school classic read in catching up on classics for October 2016 I read an illustrated version of the Washington Irving s tale, which I finished in under an hour, and for which I rate three stars I was familiar with the story of the Headless Horseman, especially as it has been used in Harry Potter in the form of the ghost Nearly Headless Nick Consequently, I was looking for an action packed story featuring the aforementioned headless horse Even though the ho [...]

    3. This little treasure was simply delightful Quite honestly, I didn t expect to enjoy it quite so much I ve seen the various movie adaptations over the years and figured there wasn t really anything to be gained by reading this short story I was wrong the eloquence of the written word brought the legend up to a whole other level for me Everyone is probably familiar with the tale of the Headless Horseman and the little valley of Sleepy Hollow, situated near the small town of Tarry Town, New York T [...]

    4. I thought this story and I were Meant To Be.A few days before reading this, I read and reviewed Washington Irving s other famous story, Rip Van Winkle, and really enjoyed it And then I read The Fold, which has this exchange between a high school student and his teacher in the first few pages Ichabod Crane isn t really the hero of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow Explain He s, like, the British You told us that when you said we couldn t just watch the TV show to learn the story You said that sometimes [...]

    5. Fun read and a great way to kick off my month of Halloween reads I know the story, watched countless movie versions of the story, but never actually read the book Still didn t.I listed to this one via audio A fun read, but I wanted gothic, creepy ness I wanted Headless Horseman The audio narration was wonderful The narrator s voice had an edge of spookiness to it a very good thing Glad I read this one but yeah, I prefer the movie version Sleepy Hollow , which I watch every Halloween.

    6. I spent a few weeks every summer in the Catskill Mountains at a resort with my godparents, parents and grandparents I used to walk around the forest, searching for the headless horsemen The cottages we always stayed in were either Rip Van Winkle or Legend of Sleepy Hollow Such good memories on the place and this book Even before the movie, it launched my thirst for mystery and the hunt And when they used this to make a few movies and then the TV show, I loved the whole concept A must read for fo [...]

    7. Ichabod Crane goes for a wild ride.Washington Irving first published The Legend of Sleepy Hollow in 1820 Besides being an iconic story and a fine example of early American literature, this is also a revealing historic illustration of life in the Dutch portions of early nineteenth century New York We get to spend some time with the corpulent and satisfied Dutch farmers and glimpse early American culture.Irving s language is typical of narrative fiction from his time, but is also resplendent as ve [...]

    8. Though I ve seen the movie versions countless times and listened to Bing Crosby croon about Brom Bones every Halloween for decades, this was my first time reading the story and it was MAGICAL I really enjoyed Irving s style His descriptions paint joyful pictures without being too wordy or grandiose The passages about Icabod s boundless appetite and his lust for Katrina s hugeacts of land are priceless.Reading this story has given me a new appreciation for Irving My goals now are 1 Read Rip Van W [...]

    9. I have to say that re reading this as an adult is a much different and wonderful experience than as a snot nosed kid of 15 I was able to appreciate the nuances much , enjoying just how established Mr Crane could be as a realistic and sympathetic character, even if he was slightly foolish.In other words, he felt real, I felt invested, and as any lover of horror knows, we must also feel superior to our victims before their inevitable and somewhat moralistic demise by supernatural or nefarious dee [...]

    10. Thanks Stephanie your review led me to read this and I am so glad I did I suppose it is because I had my education in England that this book was not part of my school reading nor had I come across it since So it was a first time read for me and it was delightful I always love stories written in this kind of old fashioned and extremely literate prose The descriptions are just superb, especially the one of Ichabod Crane At the end of that the reader knows exactly what he looked like to the point o [...]

    11. Here in Indiana US there is a town called Irvington that has absolutely no historic connection to Washington Irving at all but never the less each year produces a marvelous and quite large Halloween festival in his honor It lasts a week and centers around the characters from The Legend of Sleepy Hollow I decided it was time re read the story to catch up on all things forgotten It s a simple tale really A schoolmaster, Ichabod Crane, is trying to woo a young woman from town and it angers the town [...]

    12. Well, hello there, Mr Ichabod Crane I cannot believe I waited so long before meeting you.I really don t see the horror part in this classic I found myself smiling throughout the entire story And it was all Irving s fault He s just so funny and charming There was no dialogue at all I became aware of that at some point and wandered how come I still enjoyed it.The ending fit the character perfectly I would have not wanted it any other way.

    13. For most classics that I read it is easy to discern how they have stood the test of time and attain their classic status However, a few titles, like Moby Dick or, The Whale and Three Men in a Boat hold little or no appeal to me at all, and why would anybody want to read them is beyond me I am consigning The Legend of Sleepy Hollow to the not for me pile though I am careful not disrespect any classics because they are still being read than a hundred years after first publication, just because I [...]

    14. I loved the narration of this story Tom Mison the actor from the Sleepy Hollow television show narrates this book and I could seriously listen to his voice all day long Unfortunately, I didn t liked the actual story as much as I thought I would I really wish the story was a bit darker and less descriptive.I would give the narration 5 stars and the story 3 stars so I m going with 4 stars overall I grabbed this audiobook for free from audible a while ago and it appears that it is no longer free I [...]

    15. 3.5 star ratingA classic short story about a village s urban legend, the Headless Horsemen I first encountered this story when I was a child It was a classic animated film Do children watch this movie any Anyways, this young school teacher tries to impress a young woman, so he can have the luxuries of life Oddly, I felt like this man was my kindred spirit He seemed impressed with the food than the mistress he was trying to pursue It was an Alex moment, and I was starving by the end of my car ri [...]

    16. Siempre quise leer esta corta historia de Washington Irving 1783 1859 , uno de los precursores de la literatura norteamericana y considerado como el primer escritor de best sellers americano.Si bien estuvo a la sombra de los grandes pioneros literarios norteamericanos como Poe, Hawthorne o Melville, supo granjearse la fama de excelente escritor a partir de novelas y cuentos como ste y Rip Van Winkle o su volumen Cuentos de la Alhambra en el que recuerda su paso por Espa a La leyenda del jinete s [...]

    17. I really enjoyed this book After having just watched the Johny Depp movie version, I was surprised to find the book had almost nothing in common I read it mostly at night and I enjoyed the spooky moments though I admit my idea of spooky is pretty low on the scale for some Ichabod is mildly detestable as a character he seems like he has all the foundational qualities to make a wonderful villain, were this another story I laughed at his envisioning the Van Tassel s animals as sumptuously cooked di [...]

    18. I ve seen a few film adaptations of this story and I think I went into it expecting it to be too much like those and it left me feeling a little bit disappointed I felt like it just lacked some OOMPH to really get me interested I also found the story really loaded down with long, unnecessary descriptions and really slow to start I found it really only picked up in the last quarter of the book, that s when I started to get into it and before I knew it, it was over I did still enjoy the story thou [...]

    19. Disclaimer my only experience with the Headless Horseman has been the wonderful Disney short adaption of it I watched repeatedly no joke on repeatedly during my childhood and the Tim Burton version The entire time I read this though, I kept seeing the Disney version in my head and marveling at how well they captured the caricature of the schoolmaster that Irving seemed to be portraying and I had no idea as a child.Irving who I m now extremely interesting in researching on his life and his influ [...]

    20. I really wanted to like this story but it definitely wasn t my cup of tea Honestly, I found the story boring The author spent too much time on description, so the story was quite slow and it dragged I was also really disappointed with the end I expected that the ending will scare me at least a little but, but it didn t The story ended pretty abruptly, and now that I ve finished it, I m glad it did Even though this was a pretty short story, it sure felt like a long one Now I m off to see the movi [...]

    21. 2,5 Este es el tipo de libro que deber a venir con una alerta en la portada que diga no pierdas tu tiempo, mira la pel cula que es mejor Me ha parecido aburrido, y se me ha hecho cuesta arriba terminarlo, a pesar de ser tan corto En mi mente, lo ten a catalogado como de terror, y lo nico que me ha dado es gracia, por lo de la calabaza No super mis expectativas No lo recomiendo.

    22. First of all, this right here is the most cruel thing an author has ever done to his her character He was tall, but exceedingly lank, with narrow shoulders, long arms and legs, hands that dangled a mile out of his sleeves, feet that might have served for shovels, and his whole frame most loosely hung together His head was small, and flat at top, with huge ears, large green glassy eyes, and a long snip nose, so that it looked like a weathercock perched upon his spindle neck to tell which way the [...]

    23. Many a year since I had read this one and I found I liked it better than I had remembered Who wouldn t appreciate the descriptive powers of Washington Irving On all sides he beheld vast store of apples some hanging in oppressive opulence on the trees some gathered into baskets and barrels for the market others heaped up in rich piles for the cider press Father on he beheld great fields of Indian corn, with its golden ears peeping from their leafy coverts, and holding out the promise of cakes and [...]

    24. Illustrated by Robert Van Nutt The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is another fantastic story from Rabbit Ears Storybook Classic series Everyone knows the famous story of Icabod Crane and his encounter with the Headless Horseman The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is one of the greatest stories ever created by Washington Irving and with Glenn Close s haunting narration along with Tim Story s eerie music and Robert Van Nutt s beautiful yet haunting illustrations makes this one classic that no one will ever miss [...]

    25. i is for Irving Washington Read a book that is less than 150 pages.I have to say I was a tiny bit disappointed with this I know the story so so well that I had always believed I had read the original version, but as it turns out I haven t I ve seen the movie thousands of times, seen the TV show, and read abridged children s versions of the tale It s a tale that has always surfaced every Halloween and one that I remember fondly So when I actually read the entire unabridged tale recently on Tor, I [...]

    26. Ichabod Crane s life had been one of calm occurrence day in and day out his life was the same But the meeting of a lovely young woman by the name of Katrina Van Tassel meant he was sure she would one day become his wife But she had another vying for her attentions Brom Bones The night of great revelry at her father s home with dancing, eating and drinking Ichabod was sure he would be betrothed by night s end But on returning home his mind wouldn t stop dwelling on the stories of the Headless Hor [...]

    27. I was happy to spot Audible giving away a copy of this classic for free Unfortunately that is where my happiness ended This was a very disappointing story I have been left with a new appreciation for the Johnny Depp movie version of Sleepy Hollow It s a wonder they got a half decent movie from the source material The writing was a bit flowery for my taste Too much time spent on description and not enough time spent on the storytelling or dialogue The story itself was a bit of a bore The characte [...]
