I loved how he described the looks of the forest during the autumn. The ending was obvious half-through the book but still I laughed and pitied Ichabod for his cowardly nature.

What an absolutely wonderful story!

The story is of course absolutely wonderful. But what made it even better was the narrator. The narration really puts you into the scenes.
