The journey so far has been fantastic and Tolkien does a wonderful job at making you imagine people and places and build a whole world in your head.
It was very enjoyable and satisfying to listen to the book.
this work by JRR Tolkien is the Epic standard by which all other fantasy novels are measured. if you have seen the movies, then you will of course find the books richer and more full. However you will see that this narration by Rob Inglis had a deep and profound effect on the voices and character personalities of the actors in the movies . I listened through this whole series at least once a year as I drive and travel or do menial tasks around the house. It is a phenomenal companion.
The plot gets you hooked if you love JJR Tolkens style, for some it might be a little slow.
Aragorn. Hes a beast and makes you wanna be a ranger too
Hobbit Birthday? Lorean? Everything?
Pretty much... maybe the 16 hours was a little split up but it wasn't my fault.
Get this, you will love it.
Unfortunately for me I have read a great deal of science fiction over the past 30 years so now this seminal work seems outdated. Others have taken the idea of a grand adventure trilogy with the powers of good and evil, light and dark magic, and expanded on it. This book seemed anachronistic to me and boring. It deserves credit as a classic but I kept wishing for it to be over.
