Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow - Washington Irving, Tom Mison

I meant to listen to this at Halloween.  That didn't work, so I decided to listen to it now as I wanted something short.

 

Let me start by saying Tom Mison does a brilliant job with the narration.  His voice is so smooth and gorgeous to listen to.  But that proved to be a double edged sword.  It was so smooth and so gorgeous that combined with the expository nature of the first half of the book, he lulled me into zoning out several times during the beginning.

 

But once we get to Ichabod's departure from van Tassel's farm, everything picks up and I had no trouble paying attention.  Superbly written and superbly told.
