I only ever watched The Sleepy Hollow movie and, while I loved it, I had no intention of reading the book. It felt like the kind of book that would bore me to tears and so I decided to save myself the misery! Kudos to you for seeing the book to its end though.

I watched the film the day after I finished the short story and I have to say it is very different to the original! A lot more happens and they added more drama and plot twists to give it more of a punch. Does that win me any literary points? I like the sound of this author.
And he knew Mary Shelley.
How cool. Hahaa possibly, it is quite different from the short story though. Maybe half a point? Oh dear, that non-fiction must have given you a shock when you first saw it. They should have stated on the cover itself that it included his essays since it constitutes most of the book! It certainly did, I was expecting some but not that much of it!
The thing is, I quite enjoyed some of the pieces at the start of the book, but once I realised none of it was interconnected with each other and had no purpose I got really annoyed. I like the cover too. Did Irving write any other stories that were left out of this do you know? Oooh, yeah definitely read it, The Spectre Bridegroom was a lot of fun and my favourite of the three!
