I love all the songs and the tune which they are sung. Tom Bombadillo, the bar song, and many more are so fun and beautiful. My absolute favorite -a lesson about letting things be- is the troll and shinbone song.
All I can say is Rob Inglis brought this book to life. Exactly as the characters should be. Gandalf the Gray (the wizard, one of the most important characters in my opinion), was like the rest, flawless.
The songs and poems, superb. A very talented artist is he and his excellent work will live for ever in digital media.
19 hours of entertainment for 1 credit. 'That's a real bargain' as my thrifty grandmother would say.
It is The Lord of the rings and it is a classic. It is a little dry at first, but you catch on quick. Better than the movie. Well worth a listen. Narration was phenomenal.
I am in awe of Tolkien and all of the detail he put in this book. I loved it. I can't wait to read the next books. then I plan to see the movies. the reader did an excellent job at bringing the book to life and maintaining characters accurately.
Tolkien is the master of adventure stories. Beautifully written.
Rob Inglis is perfect in his depiction of the characters.
Tell us about yourself!
Been reading the trilogy since the early 1960's -- but what a deep pleasure to go on this journey listening to the brilliant narration!
