The Legend of Sleepy Hollow (version 3)


Read by Phil Chenevert

(4.6 stars; 28 reviews)

Everyone knows the story of the Headless Horseman but perhaps you, like me, did not remember what a marvelous story teller Washington Irving was. He observed human nature closely and like any good humorist, lets us laugh at our own silly and superstitious sides through the joy of having strangers be the ones to display them. If you, like me, have only vague and muddy memories of this story, you owe it to yourself to listen and laugh along with the rest of the world. My High School English teacher who could never interest me in 'literature', would be proud. (1 hr 25 min)

legend of sleepy hollow

(5 stars)

very interesting and greater reader, the reader was clear and concise

pts 1 & 2.

(4.5 stars)

The ultimate test with fiction & most non-fiction stories I believe is that's when it's read to me (or more commonly that l read to myself) is how many decibels will I be purring BEFORE I'm finished. I'm very well aware that librivox accept anybodys type & style of verse... but the general public in this wide but unforgiving land can be very harsh & downright rude to the very people who are trying to provide a standardized service to them. Now if the story is read in a smooth & melodious rhythm, & then has that sweet & very unique way of sending even their hardest listeners into la-la land, then that's what most readers would be looking for...the ability to have a complete story read to them & then sending their listeners off to sleep before the storyline's finished. Anyway, I gave this version of Sleeping Hollow 4 & 1\2 * as I reckon this guy is very good at public reading.

Great story

(5 stars)

This story is funny and scary and I like it very much. At first I felt sorry for him but then I realized he was not a very nice person. (review by 11 year old)

A Good Ghost Story

(5 stars)

A well told ghost story. I especially enjoyed its historical setting, which added a lot to the tale. The narrator does a fine job in making the story come alive.
