This is such an excellent presentation of one of my favorite books. The narrator's voice is very smooth and excessively pleasant to listen to, and he does a great job of changing his accent and tone for each character without sounding feigned or strange. I've lost count of the number of times I've listened to this book--it has been worth every penny on commutes or long road trips. Would highly recommend this and Robert Inglis's presentation of the following books to anyone who enjoys epic stories, whether they are already a fan of Tolkein's works or not!
I previously owned an audio version of the trilogy, but to my dismay, it was severely abridged. As with the movie versions, both animated and not, it left out many things, most notably, Tom Bombadil. Not so with this version. Every word, every passage, every nuance of the printed book is included.
The narrator is great because he makes different voices for different characters and the songs are also great .
Anyone who is a Tolkien fan will enjoy this audiobook. Even if you've only ever seen the movies I think you'll enjoy it.
