I loved every second of this reading. Of it were another narrator I probably would have been bored out of my mind. The songs of Tom Bombadil are by far my favorite. Thank you for this reading Mr. Inglis!
The story is interesting and the narrator would be good if he did take deep breaths right into the microphone after every sentence. I cringed every time I tried to listen on headphones
I can't believe he put so much effort into the origins of Hey Diddle Diddle and so little into any of the actual conflicts, especially the final one. It almost feels like nothing happened until you start the next book. It just sort of ends.
Someone who didn't sound like a pompous Shakespearean actor. He's way too caught up in pronouncing his H's and rolling his R's than to bring much personality to the characters.
I was really excited to finally take my love of LOTR away from just the movies and into the books, and I wasn't disappointed. However, I will say, the movie is better. It was fun to see where the book came from and the extra details you can't get from the book, but the movie leaves you with a fuller appreciation of the fantasy world and the conflict.
The voice was really good for the hobbit but I don't think that Frodo's voice works well with the reader's depiction of him. The songs were good, but overall I would like to see a fuller vocal range for this trilogy's audiobook.
