This topic is for those who have finished the book. Feel free to spoil away!

Kathy  | 1 comments Re-read the story last year. I loved the descriptive language the author used. It reads like a poem.

Sarah (sarahmott) | 342 comments Ha ha - love this. I went to school across the Hudson from historic Tarrytown. It's still super spooky to drive through there during the least until you get to the bridge.

This was a short and fun read. I think it's really interesting that Irving chose to make Crane an almost-ridiculous character. He's goofy looking, obsessed with food, angling for a position out of his league, and possessed of an overactive imagination. Had he been more sympathetic, I wonder if the audience would have accepted his ambiguous fate as readily, or would we have insisted on knowing what happened to him?
