The Legend of Sleepy Hollow Audiobook Streaming Online

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow Audiobook is a gothic audiobook by American author Washington Irving, contained in his collection of 34 essays and short stories entitled The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent. It is about something strange that happened long ago in a valley called “Sleepy Hollow”.

Along with Irving’s companion piece Rip Van Winkle Audiobook, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow Audiobook Free is among the earliest examples of American fiction with enduring popularity, especially during Halloween because of a character known as the Headless Horseman believed to be a Hessian soldier who was decapitated by a cannonball in battle.

Plot Summary

In the secluded Dutch territory of Sleepy Hollow, nebbish schoolmaster Ichabod Crane competes with the town hero for the hand of Katrina Van Tassel, the 18-year-old daughter and sole child of a wealthy farmer.

As Crane leaves a party at the Van Tassel’s farm one autumn evening, he is pursued by the Headless Horseman, an apparition said to be the ghost of a Hessian trooper snuffed out by a stray cannonball during the Revolutionary War.

Audiobook Reviews

A fun listen and a great way to kick off my month of Halloween. I know the story, watched countless movie versions of the story, but never actually listen to the book. Every decisive word had such a tumbling, descriptive, rhythm throughout without a stutter. The story was so cleverly written, inventive, curious, darkly humorous with an element of surprise and of course suspense!

The achievement of Audiobook The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is in its near-perfect atmospherics. Irving delivers Sleepy Hollow in all its rustic glory: the sweep of her fields; the wend of her roads; the beliefs of her people.

The audio narration was wonderful! The narrator’s voice had an edge of spookiness to it (a very good thing). I thoroughly enjoyed Tom Misons’ narration.  Really nice to listen to and his tone and character portrayal was spot on!

I would listen to it again!
