20. 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.
This is my 3rd listen through of this trilogy. I do it once a year. I saw the movies before I ever read the books and the experience has been like getting endless Extended Edition extras each time. I picture the actors in my head as I listen and I think the narrator's voices are spot on. I absolutely love this story and I'm so grateful for such a wonderful audio book version!
This recording is missing the foreward as well as the prologue (and its five subsections). I know that these have been recorded because they exist on the CD version of this audiobook.
Never read a print version so......
Any fantasy adventure with a group of characters on a quest.
The mines of Moria with the goblins and balrog
The Tom Bombadil character should have been cut in my opinion and I felt the black riders were not as menacing in this book. It almost feels more of a direct sequel to the Hobbit and gets darker in the second and third books.
I am a huge Tolkien fan and Fellowship of the Ring is my favorite book, with perhaps the exception of The Silmarillion. A great audio performance by Rob Inglis!
