あらすじ・解説

Ichabod Crane, a lanky, lean, superstitious school master, arrives to teach the children of Sleepy Hollow. As he vies for the attention of the lovely Katrina Van Tassel, his rival for her attention is the town rowdy, Brom Bones. Brom tries to scare Ichabod away with local superstitions and ghost tales. And soon enough, the ill-fated schoolmaster encounters a terrifying legend come to life: the Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow.

Meticulously adapted to stay true to the mood and flavor of the book Washington Irving is most famous for, this Colonial Radio presentation won the Charles Ogle Award for the Best Fantasy Production of 2005.

Return of the Classic!

Another quality performance by the Colonial Radio Players. Faithful to Washington Irving's original story, the first American fairy tale comes to life in such a way as to feel like the audio was stripped from an animated production. With original music and sound effects, this is a performance best listened to by the light of a single candle so as to add to the ambiance.

Hard to hear dialogue...

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Despite the great performance by the voice actors, the dialogue was hard to distinguish from the excessive ambient sounds and background music. Too bad as I love this story, as well as other offerings from Colonial Radio. So no, my time and money were wasted on this occasion.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Crane was done well.

Which scene was your favorite?

The opening was confusing...then just weird...but when you realize what is going on, it is really quite chilling!

Do you think The Legend of Sleepy Hollow needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No. It is a standalone classic. Not in need of a sequel.

Any additional comments?

Maybe it's the speakers in my Kindle...I dislike giving a bad review for such a great company. If you have better sound equipment you might be fine with the dialogue.

Very Faithful Adaptation

Large portions of this adaptation are taken directly from Washington Irving's text. The first few pages and the ending are nearly unabridged readings. In-between, sentences are quoted verbatim as the structure follows closely the original story.

The dramatized portions include songs (similar to the Disney animated adaptation) and other whimsy as well as sound effects and music. The thrilling finale is read with suitably theatrical gusto and is completely unabridged from the original text.

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is perhaps the ultimate Halloween story, and this rendition does it proud.

Great job on one of my favorite short stories!

I really love this story. The devices the dramatization uses to get details from the book to the reader is well done most of the time. Some parts feel awkward and forced. Some of the accents and dialogue felt a tiny bit off but I have read this so many times, I come to expect my own tones of the narrative. Overall, I will totally listen again. If you are a first-timer reading/listening to The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, this audio really does a good job of filling in information that would be commonly known at the time but not easy to grasp in modern context. Thank you for a great production.

Caught by the Hessian!

Jerry Robbins and the Colonial Radio Theater have created an outstanding example of radio drama capturing Washington Irving's shadowy tale of marauding ghosts and goblins. Both entertaining and well performed, and complete with an original music score! Top notch and the CRT follows the short story closely. Perfect for Halloween and family friendly and a great listen anytime. Well worth your investment.
