Sticking to the original story. This bastardization of the book is appalling! Truly horrible, such dramatic license should not be allowed. Its quite easy to see how stories can change when re-written and lose the details that spur imagination. No offense to the voice actors but the re-write is offensive to my senses! Will not recommend this to any nor admit I took the time to listen to such dribble!
If J.R.R. Tolkien were alive yes. But Only the unabridged versions!
Not difficult when voices are different.
I would STICK TO THE ORIGINAL BOOKS!!!!
New to Audible books but if this is an indication of re-writes won't be downloading anything but the unabridged versions !!!!
I've read the triligy several times and love the unabridged work, however this dramatised version has very good voices and pace. I don't care for the singing, but I tend to fast forward through that and it's just part of the story.
This book was alright but now I understand don't get a drantized book. They don't describle any thing. They just read the speaking parts of the book.
Actually read the damned book without cutting entire sections of it out. I didn't realize that it was abridged as well as dramatised, and this should have been made clear. This is completely unacceptable.
If a proper unabridged version is made, then yes. I don't understand why no unabridged version exists.
First of all I'm a fan of the books and the movies. Get any other version.
Not this edition if they wanted a more in depth experience than the movie.
Probably the scene with the wolves before they entered Moria.
I wish they would have included Tom Bombadil and the Barrow Downs.
I just achieved App Master!! I never thought I would make it this far!! Thanks Audible
I'm sure this would have been a great radio production I'll stick with the movies. Who knows if I'm between books I might get the other two. Not something I have to have.
there was to much back ground noise couldn't keep up with what was going on .. to noisy
don;t have one only listened to 2 chapters
couldn't here what they were saying most of the time
i loved the movies and was looking forward to the books but didn't like the back ground sounds
I wanted the audiobook of The Fellowship of the Ring BY J.R.R. TOLKIEN. This rip-off is not the actual writings of J.R.R. Tolkien. the order of events and dialogue is completely changed and NONE of Tolkien's beautiful descriptive writing or his back-history for the world he created is included. Tolkien was a masterful story teller and I was expecting to listen to HIS story not this crap that claims to be the Lord of the Rings in name ONLY. Dont buy it if your a fan!
J.R.R. Tolkien yes but not the narrators.
He did it all. The narrators messed it up.
This is not what you want. If you are looking for a good copy of Fellowship of the Ring, this is not it. Did not enjoy this. Where is the unabridged version?!
