First of all this book, I would say is more or less a short story. But what I really noticed is his form of writing(Washington Irving) as compared to the form of writing in these contemporary times. I found his style quite interesting. But what drew me to this book in the first place is the TV series "Sleep Hollow" which I have been viewing ever since its' airing on Fox TV. Of course the book is nothing like the TV series at all with the exception of these three(3) characters, Ichabod Crane, The Headless Horseman and of course the woman Ichabod was smitten with Katrina Van Tassel. All in all, I have been hearing about this book for years but never garnered enough interest to take the time to read it until now.

As with many readers my previous exposure to this story was the Disney Cartoon and the ghoulish adaptation by Johnny Depp, Christina Ricci in the Movie "Sleepy Hollow" [Blu-ray] (1999).

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.

The imagery in this work is truly magnificent. The way that Irving described the small town of Sleepy Hollow is truly outstanding, and a work of art in itself that we are lucky to be able to behold in his writings. If you are reading this for the story, you may be slightly disappointed, as it is more set on descriptions than a storyline, despite one existing therein. Nevertheless, a classic and enchanting read for high school through adulthood that anyone can stop to enjoy. The best part is that at only one dollar, anyone can enjoy this work as an educational or recreational read!

It's a classic and I started to get into the Sleepy Hollow show, so I picked this up. It is only a short story so 40 Kindle pages. But again, it's a classic so wanted to see how well the TV show stacked up.

I had a hard time getting into this story because, though not necessarily a bad thing, the author is very descriptive. I felt that it was distracting me from the actual story at times because I was trying to take in all the details.

Washington Irving's ghost story has been redone and remade so many times it's hard to remember the original. However, the actual story is a beautifully descriptive story about what the mind can do to scare us out of our wits.
