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.
These old sci-fi stories are great fun. It's almost always rewarding to read something obscure by a great old sci-fi author like Isaac Asimov.
I'm really glad to see Audible making older and shorter classic stories available.
The narration wasn't bad, but I think I've been spoiled by some of the truly fantastic narrators I've heard on Audible. I was going to give it four stars to be generous, but was listening again as I wrote this and heard a hesitation that really should have been edited out. And some of the character voices were inconsistent and seemed not quite right. So three stars.
This was an entertainingly weird story. It was very much like one of those fabulous old Twilight Zone TV show episodes.
The difference, though, is that the Twilight Zone episodes always seemed to have a point. I couldn't see the point of this story.
Still, it was interesting and entertaining.
