Publisher's Summary

Tom Mison, star of the hit Fox series Sleepy Hollow, narrates the classic Washington Irving short story.
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 during the Revolutionary War.

Critic Reviews

"Tom Mison's voice is delicious. His precise British diction allows listeners to savor Irving's sumptuous descriptions and sly humor. There are many pleasures to be found in Mison's rendition of the brief classic story, though a few instances of Irving's casual racism grate on modern ears. Listen for yourself and discover why it has so captured our collective imagination. (Mison himself stars in Sleepy Hollow, the current TV incarnation.) Whether you're familiar with the original story of Ichabod Crane and the Headless Horseman or not, Mison's reading is a gratifying way to experience it." ( AudioFile)

Treasures Of Jolly Autumn

A free fun Halloween listen from Audible of a famous short story about ghosts and the greedy Ichabod. First published in 1820 the story is brought vibrantly to life by this excellent narration. Tom Mison makes this a complete winner. Really well done!

Hollow bones

Because I had never read the story before but seen countless sleepy hollow versions I wasn't sure what to expect. Tom mason does an excellent narrative and my stomach was a flutter thinking of the headless horseman. I wish this was a longer book.

First time hearing it...

...all the way through. Great story written with so much colorful detail. Tom Mison's voice is perfect and the story was read with just the right amount of drama.

Lovely

The familiar story, smart and a little tongue in cheek read in the beautiful tones of Tom Mison. My only wish is that it could be a little longer!

Absolutely loved it!! Irving def a Master writer!

Irvings' tale of Sleepy Hollow was written with such poetic prowess and grandeur!

Every decisive word had such a tummbling, descriptive, rhythm throughout without a stutter. The story was so cleverly written, inventive, curious, darkly humorous with an element of surprise and of course suspense!!

I thoroughly enjoyed Tom Misons' narration. Really nice to listen to and his tone and character portrayal was spot on!
Would listen to it again! :))
