Beschreibung

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.

Kritikerstimmen

"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)

Nichts gerade weltbewegend

Altbacken daherkommende Vertonung der originalen Sleepy Hollow Legende. Das ganze hatmir persönlich keinen Spaß bereitet.

Für Fans der Serie Sleepy Hollow ein Leckerbissen

Wer die Serie Sleepy Hollow in der Originalfassung liebt, dem wird auch diese Geschichte gefallen. Tom Misons Stimme und die gestelzte Ausdrucksweise seiner Serienfigur Ichabod Crane passen auch ausgezeichnet zu Washington Irvings Story.
