J.R.R. Tolkien is one of the greatest writers ever to live and his middle earth saga is among the greatest books written. Rob Inglis does a great job reading this book, he sings some of the songs written, he tries to imitate what each species sounds like.
Riddles in the Dark is a great chapter.
His singing plus the main characters are great, he does a good job portraying who they are.
I read the entire series in high school and decided to listen to it again on Audible. The story is, of course, a masterpiece and well-worth listening to again. My only complaint is that this is an older recording. The narrator does a good job--no real complaints but this is such an iconic and popular story that I think it deserves being updated to include multiple narrators such as Audible has done with Ender's Game, Dracula, Dune, etc...
It's hard to imagine a more perfect audiobook. Tolkien is of course magnificent and Inglis's performance is amazing. The guy has a different voice for every character! He sets the songs to music, and his pacing and diction are flawless. You won't be disappointed.
Recommended for all ages. Excellent story and performance. I recommend each of the Tolkien novels that are read by Rob Inglis.
