    In the secluded Dutch territory of Sleepy Hollow, nebbish schoolmaster Ichabod Crane competes with the town hero for the hand of Katrina Van Tassel, the 18-year-old daughter and sole child of a wealthy farmer. As Crane leaves a party at the Van Tassel's farm one autumn evening, he is pursued by the Headless Horseman, an apparition said to be the ghost of a Hessian trooper snuffed out by a stray cannonball.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Free: The Legend of Sleepy Hollow to be better than the print version?

    I do own both the audio and the print version of this story. When I heard Tom Mison was narrating it, I jumped at the chance to have the fictional Ichabod Crane from TV to read the origin story for me. I thought he really brought the story to life for me.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I like Brom Bones in the original story as he is full of mischief but seems to have a good heart. Brom actually liked Katrina instead of liking the wealth and prestige she could give him as Ichabod did. This is stark contrast to other media portrayals where Ichabod is the hero and Brom is the villain of the piece.


    Which character – as performed by Tom Mison – was your favorite?

    I liked Tom's voice as Ichabod. It was a stuffier performance than his TV portrayal of another version of his character.


    Any additional comments?

    Tom Mison was a great narrator. I'd listen to other things he did in the future.

    Before her older sister, Lizzie, started her wildly popular vlog, Lydia was just a normal 20-year-old plotting the many ways she could get away with skipping her community college classes and finding the perfect fake ID. She may not have had much direction, but she loved her family and had plenty of fun. Then Lizzie's vlog turned the Bennet sisters into Internet sensations, and Lydia basked in the attention as people watched, debated, tweeted, tumblr'd, and blogged about her life. But not all attention is good.

    Mary Kate did a great job bringing her story to life! I really liked the psychology history as well since that was her major.
