Decided to read this as it is a classic and not that long so fit into the amount of time I had to read. In the beginning I loved the dialect it was written in - the old English - however, by the time it was done, I was rather tired of it.

It had some wonderfully discriptive lines such as "Though many years has elapsed ince I trod the drowsy shades of Sleepy Hollow, yet I question whether I should not still find the same trees and the same families vegatating in its sheltered bosom."

I was disappointed in the lack of dialogue or the feeling that I was in the story. I know it is a classic and all but I would give it a C at best.
