When it comes to radio plays the BBC really knows what it's doing. Originally a thirteen episode dramatization from the 60's l believe with some extra dialogue to bring it up to date with Jackson's epic movies there's nothing to say other than "Wow!" I would happily recommend this to everyone l know and even to those l don't know.
The actor playing Aragorn has a very distracting lisp. Very annoying in that it crops up numerous times. Just when I think the lisp will never show up again, it surfaces, in all of this series.
JRR Tolkien, amazing author.
I like the narrator as is
Please get rid of the actor playing the Aragorn character, has a horribly distracting lisp
No additional comments
I enjoyed it from the moment I put my headphones on the narrator was good all three of them highly recommend this book for anybody who hasn't read Lord of the Rings or doesn't have the time to read
Professor Tolkien's famous trilogy begins not only where The Hobbit left off, but far back to a time before the coming of Smaug in Eribor. Only character missing is Tom Bombadil, but I don't mind.
I knew that downside going in, but I would love an unabridged version with this cast to.
Can't really complain however, some details and things were skipped bit the story as a whole felt like it was complete for this part at least. I'm expecting similar things for the next two parts and if they are then I'd say these are well worth buying.
