A must read. Now I will enjoy even more the Disney animated film and the other film versions. The best being by Tim Burton and starring the incredible Johnny Depp.
Now studying the history of Sleepy Hollow New York.
Highly recommend this delightful tale.
With my purchase of the kindle I was catching up on the classics or sample from different writers. I did not realize this was so short of a story and had to get the images out of my head from the films.
I am amazed had what a good descriptive writing of Washington Irving. I had to set the book down occasionally to look up people and words. Now I ordered information on Hudson and Cotton Mather.
I spent a year near the location of the story at West Point. Now I wonder if there was such a place as Sleepy Hollow.
This is another example of the book being better than the movie. And I look forwarded to reading more of Washington Irving. You will be hooked on him also. In any event it is work the read.
I used the Text-to-Speech function of the book. I intend to purchase a copy form my physical library.
