Description

Sleepy Hollow’s most famous supernatural phenomenon is the ghost of the Headless Horseman, said to be a Hessian soldier who lost his head to a cannon ball during the Revolutionary War. The Horseman is seen most often riding by the church, where local historians say he was buried. He is believed to be always in search of his head. Ichabod is fascinated by this story, being especially interested (and prone to believe) in tales of the supernatural.

    If you’re looking for a quick chill down your spine, you’ve found the right story. Probably makes for a good campfire story if you live in the East or Midwest USA.

    The over all look and story of the book is great I love it but those words were so old I could barley read the book. I hate to look up a summary because I had no idea what was going on.

    I just finished this book today, I thought it was so boring. All it was a narrator telling you about the place and people. I only read this book for a language arts assignment. I thought interesting but turns out it wasn't. I wouldn't suggest this book to anyone. It was a total snoozer.😴

    This is literally the worst book I've ever read. It makes no sense, it talks about the most random stuff I can't keep track of where I am without thinking of other stuff because this book is boring.

    A must read for those going through classic literature. Irving's description of Crane alone is a fantastic study of a three-dimensional character who the reader empathizes with yet at the same time despises for he reflects our own prideful, covetousness and pathetic character.

    Hello fellow Americans, I thought this was going to be a heartwarming horror story but instead its complete crap. I thought me and my family could sit around the fire and read this legend of sleepy hollow book together.
