Was there really a Headless Horseman? This dramatic story will draw you into the life of Ichabod Crane as you ponder the question. The Washington Irving classic has been rewritten as an "edge of your seat" audio production with updated language for today's audience.
A thrilling story any time of the year. Not intended for the faint of heart.

Big disappointment

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Being deaf

What other book might you compare The Legend of Sleepy Hollow to, and why?

Can't think of one to compare for silliness

How could the performance have been better?

Less silly voices

Afte approx,8minutes I couldn't stand any more & I turned it off.

What were they thinking?

OK, I admit that I have always loved this story. For many years I would read the book (it is a short book) every Halloween season. Having grown up in the area of Sleepy Hollow, I really enjoyed how Washington Irving captures the feel of the place and its people...his words are magic. This version was a real disappointment! It totally dumbed down the language to the point where it is no more special than your average Saturday morning cartoon...ACK!
If you want a real Sleepy Hollow experience I recommend that you try a different version...for this program, (the creators of this should be spanked and put to bed with out dinner!) I was sooooo disappointed, and you will be too. Now I see that these folks have also done a version of A Christmas Carol?I am scared, very scared.

If it ain't broke -

Why this story needed to be "updated for todays audience" is beyond me. Washington Irving wrote a classic, and his words are sheer poetry. This version is poorly acted (since when is there an Irish accent in Sleepy Hollow- the story always refers to "Dutch settlers." Oh, there could have been an Irishman or two in Tarrytown in the late 1700's - but Mr. Irving does not mention any in his book). The narrator has not even a hint of forboding in her voice - she sounds as if she is reading a happy tale for tiny tots. Nothing scary about this program - except the title - at least that wasn't changed. Maybe it's just me, but this does not do justice to the original story. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
