First of all, i understand that this is a book mostly written for youngsters but i didn't thought it to be that much pointless.
I'm almost angry at this story for being so irrelevant.
I expected a well written tale about a ghost, instead of that I struggled to go through all the description in this focus-less story. What i did get out of this story : description of the main character Ichabod, description of food, description of trees, 2 pages of pursuit by the pumpkin ghost, wobbly ending.
No scare, no thrill, no suspense. It didn't even get a smile out of me.
The only good point of this story is its shortness, because I wouldn't have willingly gave it more than an hour of my life.
