While not a "dramatization", the book is read with distinction b/w characters and a reflection of their moods at the time. I see why this is the most-loved audio version.
I liked all of it. This unabridged version contains all of the songs sung by the narrator. This helps the reader get a feel for the meter of the verse. The narrator masterfully uses different voices for each character.
I recommend this to all readers.
Rob Inglis is an amazing reader who changes voices to fit the character. Truly a storyteller. I recommend this book to anyone who likes fantasy and mythic stories. My inner child loves being read to.
it's not just the story that I found amazing but it was Rob Inglis is reading of the Lord of the Rings that made the book truly come to life he saying he made 10 or 12 different character voices. Well no one could have been better to do this than him he really brought the story to life in a fantastic job well done it's not just the story that I found amazing but it was robbed english is reading of the lord of the rings that made the book truly come to life he saying he made 10 or 12 different erica voice is the red well no 1 could of been better to do this then him he really brother story to life into the fantastic job well done
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.
