    The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is the most famous supernatural wild chase in all of literature. One of the best known American short stories, this tale has been produced countless times for television and film. A halloween classic!

    Nothing really matters says: "Hard to believe was written almost 200 years ago"
    "A forgotten piece of Americana"

    What did you like best about The Legend of Sleepy Hollow? What did you like least?

    Legend of Sleepy Hollow is an interesting short work. Everyone has their judgements going into the Irving classic, either it be from the Disney short, the new television show or watching a stage rendition of it. Being an Americanist at heart I was excited to revisit this American classic tale and was disappointed at the dimwitted nature and shallowness of the protagonist. I guess my expectations of what Ichabod Crane was supposed to be, and what he actually was were completely different. One does have to give Irving a thumbs up on his comedic elements; The possible cabal between Crane and Brom was a funny twist.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Curtis Sisco?

    I'm sure Sisco is a fine orator and voice actor but when I'm listening to fiction I want the characters to be voiced differently.
