I have loved LOTR for a long time, but held off on getting an audio version because so much depends on the reading and pace, and I was worried it would be too slow. thrilled to be wrong- narrators tone, voice and pace at perfect.
The story is good and the performance is excellent as well. I wish more narrators were as good as rob Inglis.
21. Fantasy Nut. College Student. Food. Books. What more could you need?
Yes, most definitely. It was hard for me to get into the print version and the audio made it so much easier!
Maybe Narnia (ironic, I know). The worlds are somewhat reminiscent of each other.
Rob sings, he does the voices, he brings the characters to life. It's so easy just to sit back and let him bring the story to you.
ONE RING TO RULE THEM ALL. Hahahahahahahahahahaha.
I didn't love the book, but I really enjoyed myself. I think I'll give it another shot some time in the future to allow myself to fall in love with it. I do in fact, adore the movie though. I can see why Tolkien is so monumental in the fantasy genre- this book really does have it all.
I read this book back when the first movie came out. Without knowing this tale of how the ring came into Frodo's possession, the story line in the first movie would not have made much sense. Listening to the unabridged edition now brings back the enchantment of reading the story some years ago. Good job!
A harrowing adventure showing that acts of bravery and kindness from even the smallest and most timid of creatures can change the world for the better. With an amazing voice actor and detailed story you will be led on a journey through a world you will come to love.
