The Legend of Sleepy Hollow - Washington Irving - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow:

Love triangles and other superstitions.

My favorite Washington Irving quote from the book:

"He who wins a thousand common hearts is therefore entitled to some renown; but he who keeps undisputed sway over the heart of a croquette is indeed a hero."

Questions to ponder while reading The Legend of Sleepy Hollow:

How do you woo a girl?

What do you think of Ichabod?

My review of reading The Legend of Sleepy Hollow:

A Halloween classic.

Way better than the Disney version.

Should we always root for the underdog?
