 The story is set in 1790 in the countryside around the Dutch settlement of Tarry Town, in a secluded glen called Sleepy Hollow. Sleepy Hollow is renowned for its ghosts and the haunting atmosphere that pervades the imaginations of its inhabitants and visitors. Some residents say this town was bewitched during the early days of the Dutch settlement. The most infamous specter in the Hollow is the Headless Horseman, said to be the ghost of a Hessian trooper that had his head shot off by a stray cannonball during "some nameless battle" of the American Revolutionary War.

I have grown up like many hearing this story and watching cartoons and tv shows/movies of this story, but those were exciting and a little bit creepy. The book though i found to be quite boring. The basic story was there, there was a lot of detail about the area that the story originated from and all that which was ok, but i lost interest almost before the school teacher was introduced. I can't say my interest was pulled back into the story after he was introduced either, but there were enough differences in the characters personality that it did make me take a bit of notice. I wouldn't recommend this book if you were looking for creepy or scary, but it is interesting enough to get the base of the story and where it came from.

ok, i really love the "basic" of these books I love Walt and the trouble he always finds himself in with the whole reunion part of the book... BUT that was only half the book... the other half was just more conspiracy theory/government coverup/big pharma crap. It took me forever to even get through this book just because i am soooo sick of all the political/conspiracy stuff that really could be totally left out of the book in my opinion and it would have been 100 times better. When i first started this series it was more about Walt and his friends and their hijinks which were fun and enjoyable to listen to, now it's 99% conspiracy and authors opinions, and "if you don't agree or jump on the bandwagon then you are just sheep" type feeling i get from listening to this book.

It took me a little bit to really get into this book, but the twists and turns were really awesome once it got into the story. I wasn't a fan of the sound effect because there were points where it was hard to hear the narrator over the screaming tires or the loud car noises and such. It it didn't blast your ears i think it would have pretty great!

Samuel Cooke knows most women wouldn't give him a second glance even if he were the last man on earth. He's the cripple with crutches, the nerdy computer genius every female past puberty feels compelled to mother. So when he leaves his lucrative career to teach programming to high schoolers, romance definitely isn't on his radar. Perhaps that's why Greta Cassamajor catches him off guard. The sarcastic gym coach with zero sense of humor is no beauty - not even on the inside. But an inexplicably kind act toward Samuel makes him realize she is interesting.

I was a bit on the fence with this book at first, but soon fell in love with characters, especially Greta. I could easily place myself in her shoes of wanting to protect herself and not wanting to fall into the trap so to speak of relationships. This book is about second chances and finding who are more than on the surface. Will absolutely listen to this one again!!

What do a Confederate soldier who died on the field of battle, a woman who was driven from her home by the ravages of the Civil War, and a man who perished in a turn-of-the-century asylum have in common? They all contact private investigator, Walt Williams. A bizarre series of events surrounding these paranormal visits culminate in the discovery of a terrorist plot to detonate bombs at a crowded festival. Once again, Lady Justice pairs Walt with forces from beyond the veil to solve mysteries hidden for decades and bring evil-doers to justice.

I loved the history that was brought into this one. I do like ghost stories and all so that i am sure helped me like this one as much as i did. I love that Walt is back to helping people without agenda, just trying to do his best. I laugh out loud when i think of Mary and her fried twinkie experience, that would most definitely have been me (only i never had one before) but i would have had more to say to that mother too... I thought it was funny about the ghosts making requests, but i do like how Walt was willing to just go with it, especially since the last book :)

I didn't laugh through this one as much as i did with books C and D, but i did laugh at parts. This one felt like it was just to here, there and everywhere that i felt more confused at times than humorous. I may have to listen to this again to see if i might have just missed something

The beginning was Amazing! Loved the incorporation of history into it and made it more exiting to think about what if this really happened... Then came introducing the main character. That is where i got a little bored. Ok, things were a bit exciting with a storm and all that but in a lot of ways it was almost too much detail maybe, not really sure, that lost my attention for a little bit. I had trouble following the changes between different characters and where the story was headed because people i thought were actually together were not. Once it got past the storm though it was easier to follow for me and it turned into a really great book. I think that this would make a really awesome movie or tv show just because the details given in the story were hard to follow sometimes because i couldn't picture what was being talked about, where a tv or movie they would just show it to you and i would be like "oh, that!!" Overall worthy read/listen.

The Five Wishes Series is five hot and hilarious novellas about wishes that go terribly wrong…fortunately. Each novella is roughly 100 pages with NO cliffhanger. Five Wishes...A happy ending is just a coin toss away.

I love how these books get to the point fairly quickly and with a very funny take on things. My absolute favorite story has to be the last book though. This one made me laugh soooo hard at times with how the girl was all sweet and innocent while being fun loving and tough. My next favorite was the 2nd book, every girls dream story.... except for the smell... :)

For some reason the book quit playing and deleted itself off my device after listening to just over half of the book. I will have to try it again later to finish it. But what i did listen to was really good! not so much scary, but a little bit creepy or just all out strange which is great too! Sometimes i did get a bit lost in the fact that another story had started, there didn't seem to be much of a pause between when one story ended and the next one started, but after a little while you get used to it. Definitely with listening to especially when you may not have a lot of time to get through a larger book

I will start this review by saying i am not always in love with Ambrose Ibsen's books, Most that i have listed to i have had to push myself to get through but in the end almost all were definitely worth the listen. This one on the other hand had me hooked from the very beginning. Strange things started happening right from the beginning and once the ball was rolling so to speak, it got really really creepy!! A couple times while listening i thought that it would make a great TV movie. I don't think it would be able to be strung out long enough for a full on movie, but a TV movie i think would be perfect!!! The ending though.... I can't wait to listen to the next book in this series!!
