Publisher's Summary

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is a horror story by American author Washington Irving. Written while Irving was living abroad in Birmingham, England, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow was first published in 1820. It is among the earliest examples of American fiction with enduring popularity, especially during Halloween because of a character known as the Headless Horseman believed to be a Hessian soldier who lost his head to a cannonball in battle.

Favorite classic 🎃

A great October listen with a magnificently scenic description. I'm a fan of the movie, but wasn't sure I would like the book as much. I was wrong! This book is awesome! And Roberto's creepy sounding portrayal of characters is perfect. I was given a free copy of this book at my request and have voluntarily decided to leave this review.

Classic text, well told

This is the classic Washington Irving story that's perfect for Halloween season. Listening to Ichabod Crane's story is a great way to kick off the holiday.

The narrator is well spoken and really places you in the story. It's short, but well-told and engaging. Recommended.

A classic for a reason

Certain Books last because they are written well and tell a story that does not age.

That is certainly true here....it is a story that is just as fresh as when it was written.


The Narrator delivers a good performance to enhance the enjoyment of the the Book.

Classic creepy tale!

Wonderful spooky story for fall season or ghost story lovers in general. I grew up on the classic cartoon and had never read the story! Expertly narrated with a deep period voice that added to the atmosphere. Enjoyable all around! I received a free review copy of this book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

A Great Classic!

This is one of my favorite classic stories out there. I prove this by having three copies of this book by three different narrators. I will have say that I enjoyed Roberto Scarlato's reading to the other two. His voice is a nice low voice that to me really fits this story more than the others. I would suggest you check out the various narrators before you choose which version to get. I am not disappointed with any of the copies I have but I found I prefer Mr. Scarlato's voice best so far. Of course the story needs no explaining, it's Sleepy Hollow!! A great classic and I will suggest this version to my friends over the other two I own.

Wasn’t expecting to love this story as much as I did!

What a fun story! Thought it might get too creepy for me, but it was nonstop fun and fascination. Super well written and the narrator had me enthralled the whole time! Five Stars!

Classic

The story is a classic, but this narration is probably my favorite of the ones on audible. This is a good version of the book i recommend it.

Fun

I remember reading this as a kid, but remember it differently. Thinking I was so young that a lot was over my head. But, still a fun listen. The narration on this was very well done. Nice to revisit and see anew as an adult.

An Autumn time best listen

This narrator really brought this book to life. I don't think I have read this book since my kids were young. modern day Sleepy Hollow blends into yesteryear while listening, away went the traffic during my commute through the now not so sleepy town. I will keep this audible book on my phone for listening next year, and the year after.
