I recommend this book to everyone. Christopher Lee did a fantastic job narrating it. He is an avid Tolkien fan and provided such a masterful rendition of this as only he could do!
great performance by Christopher Lee. he rather dark story but in keeping with the legends
Yea thou I did not indulge my hearing past the midpoint of the tale no joy did it bring to my ears nor my heart as I struggled to find majesty in the words after words after ever flailing words blah blah blah blah blah.... You get the picture no quest, no story, no meaning. Just a day or month or year in middle earth.
Like many people I first read JRR Tolkien in college. The Hobbit, The Lord of The Rings Triloggy, THEY WERE MASTERPIECES!! A whole alternate world that was fascinating, thrilling, beautiful, scary, horrible....what an escape. I LOVED IT ALL!! I have read them all multiple times, seen the movies, and listened to the tapes/CD's. I was so disappointed in this book. The decendant is not the father and I feel cheated that they would publish a story that I don't think JRR wanted published !
Yes and he is very talented for the correct roles as he was for this one
I would have added a story not just a series of scenes with no overlaying plot
Do not be fooled by the name a sad substitute for the real thing!DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY!
