I think it's my favorite version, but all that aside, the book is beautifully written in a flowing style and humorous with character description. At first, Eliza is keeping her reasoning for the move secret until she introduces Jason to the descendant of Brom Bones, who is on a mission to find a treasure. I was able to appreciate the nuances much more, enjoying just how established Mr. I cannot believe I waited so long before meeting you. He was the town teacher and choirmaster.
I am ready to read more scary classics! I read it mostly at night and I enjoyed the spooky moments though I admit my idea of spooky is pretty low on the scale for some. He closes his eyes and starts to sing a psalm. Ichabod becomes the victim of the feared headless horseman after believing the superstitious tales of this spirit preying in the night. I really wish the story was a bit darker and less descriptive. It is one thing to see a frightened lawyer being taken for a ride in a carriage by a driver who has lost his head along the way. I thought I knew this story, but I didn't.
His most daunting opponent is Abraham Van Brunt, a strong, broad-shouldered, powerful young man nicknamed Brom Bones. The ending fit the character perfectly. I grabbed this audiobook for free from audible a while ago and it appears that it is no longer free. They trade scary stories about everything that can possibly be haunted. It's a simple tale really. I want breath and time to discuss this banquet as it deserves, and am too eager to get on with my story. I could see the bounty, I could taste the honey, I could feel the cool Autumn breezes and feel the golden sun.
Really looking forward to the rest of the series. Everyone is probably familiar with the tale of the Headless Horseman and the little valley of Sleepy Hollow, situated near the small town of Tarry Town, This little treasure was simply delightful! I read an illustrated version of the Washington Irving's tale, which I finished in under an hour, and for which I rate three stars. He is mischievous, but he is often motivated by goodwill. I listed to this one via audio. When it comes to one of America's great stories, Burton obviously couldn't care less. Oh no, Gleaves does not bore his readers. As such, the style and content of each review will vary.
I becamse interested in the Legend after, and even answered a Jeopardy question on good ol' Ichabod while reading true story, ha. He also has an insatiable hunger and a taste for the finer things. An unofficial video game adaptation of the film titled Cursed Fates: The Headless Horseman was released by Fenomen Games and on January 6, 2013. Sometimes it's for clarity, at times for snuck-in humor, but just maybe it was either because the author was writing without pre-planning or trying to pad. But a whole paragraph on food listing and not in a mouthwatering way? We also learn that he's not the only one; Brom Bones is also after her hand and is doing his best pranks to keep Ichabod away. He is a schoolteacher, and like many teachers today, he doesn't make too much money.
It held my interest in the characters and in the progress of the story. The suggestion is that Katrina has rejected him, that he now knows he has no chance with her. There was really no point to it. Or, at least he does once he sees her father's farm. Heinrichs tailored the sets so cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki could shoot from above without seeing the end of the stage.

The chief part of the stories, however, turned upon the favorite specter of Sleepy Hollow, the Headless Horseman, who had been heard several times of late, patrolling the country; and, it was said, tethered his horse nightly among the graves in the churchyard. Thus, even where the story is told with confidence, the narrator has given us reasons to doubt evrything. But it's not going to be easy—he already has a rival. Of course, Ichabod thinks these aren't pranks, but hauntings.
I expected that the ending will scare me at least a little but, but it didn't. As if I didn't want to visit Sleepy Hollow before, this book definitely makes me want to go more. Ichabod is mildly detestable as a character; he seems like he has all the foundational qualities to make a wonderful villain, were this another story. The original remains deceptively simple, a good-naturedly mythologized vision of pastoral America.
