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.

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

I had looked for an audio version of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow online, but hadn't found one that was any good before now.

What about Tom Mison’s performance did you like?

Tom Mison's reading of the book was absolutely brilliant. He has the perfect voice for the piece, and his reading of the tale is quite enjoyable. The fact that he is Ichabod Crane in the television show of the same name makes it all the more fun.

Any additional comments?

A great reading of an American classic--which I totally enjoyed!
