the book was a joy to listen to. in my mind, it greatly increased the enjoyment I found in it. I more greatly appreciated the songs and the words of elvish which before I had skimmed over.
there is a reason it is such a classic, great book and awesome story telling
Great story, decent narration, John Ingles sounds dull at times, with little variation for character voices, and chose very strange melodies to use for the songs in the book. But it does little to detract from the wonderful story.
