I have a love/hate relationship with this book. I loved the language and detail the author provided the audience even though at times it became a little bit tedious. I hated the ending because when I decided to read The Legend of Sleepy Hollow I thought it was one of the first of its kind- as in one of the earliest American "horror" classics. But, as it turns out, the story wasn't any scarier then any fairy tale by the Grimm Brothers.

Rip Van Winkle, was everything I hoped it'd be and more. I, not only, enjoyed the descriptive detail of this story but I also fell in love with the story itself.
