The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is not only a good premise for a Disney cartoon or a Johnny Deppy film, it's also a fantastic and carefully nuanced tale of the dealings and deceptions in an isolated community in Upstate New York. Washington Irving conveys just the right amount of humor and mystery and you cannot help but feel that he is laughing at you the whole time. It's a short novel, but as you finish the last line, you'll find yourself closing the book with a shiver and a smile.

No Legend of Sleepy Hollow?

Was looking forward to reading this. Can't seem to find any Legend of Sleepy Hollow in this one.

    Scary but great

    Some may find this book too scary for their children, but, believe me, it's an American classic that shouldn't go unread by any child.

    Hits the spot

    I read this after seeing the Tim Burton movie, and it satisfies what i thought was missing from the film. It of course has the great original romantic era feel to it, and also the simplicity that doesnt need more to be better. The horseman is smart, and toys with Ichabod before assaulting him. There is the ambiguity that Bram as had his fun in getting rid of his competition. A classic that should be revered as much.
