    I grew up on Golden Age Radio, and while I love to read, I typically consume more books via audio thanks to a job that lets me listen while I work. As an aspiring writer, I try to read a great deal of non-fiction in addition to a variety of fictional genres. I especially love history, historical fiction, science fiction, fantasy, and old-style gothic horror.

    "Return of the Classic!"

    Another quality performance by the Colonial Radio Players. Faithful to Washington Irving's original story, the first American fairy tale comes to life in such a way as to feel like the audio was stripped from an animated production. With original music and sound effects, this is a performance best listened to by the light of a single candle so as to add to the ambiance.

    "Very Faithful Adaptation"

    Large portions of this adaptation are taken directly from Washington Irving's text. The first few pages and the ending are nearly unabridged readings. In-between, sentences are quoted verbatim as the structure follows closely the original story.

    The dramatized portions include songs (similar to the Disney animated adaptation) and other whimsy as well as sound effects and music. The thrilling finale is read with suitably theatrical gusto and is completely unabridged from the original text.

    The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is perhaps the ultimate Halloween story, and this rendition does it proud.
