Title: The Legend of Sleepy Hollow
Author: Washington Irving
Rating: 5 of 5 Stars
Ichabod Crane, local school teacher and collector of local supernatural lore, is in love with a rich farmer’s daughter.So is a brawny tough.
One night Ichabod meets the local Haunt of Sleepy Hollow, the Headless Horseman and is never seen in the area again.
This was a lot shorter than I was expecting. I thought it would be novella size instead of a short story.
It also wasn’t scary, but funny. It simply had a lot of paranormal going on in it. And in the end, you find out that it wasn’t even that.
However, I still really enjoyed this. Ichabod was SO your geeky booksmart guy who simply couldn’t compete. And the lass involved was your typical backwoods small towner who Ichabod would have been smarter to ignore. But as we all know, sometimes the head doesn’t lead down the same path as the heart.
I just chuckled away several times. Definitely going to be a story I read each year for from now one. It was just delightful!
