I love this story and was eager to finally read the books as I had only seen the movies. However after starting out I constantly was battling to pay attention due to the readers voice and performance. Perhaps others may disagree but he reminds me of a British college professor. Thankfully I found an alternate audio performance (not on audible) that rescued my experience with these books. I'm loving the story as I knew I would... but sadly... this is not the performance I was hoping for given this epic classic.
This classic book was great to listen to, and the great performance by Rob Inglis made it that much better. Great read for anyone who wants to enjoy a great fantasy story.
Tolkien manages to transport the reader to one of the most beautiful worlds ever created. The character development is astounding and the lessons learned: priceless.
I want Star Wars books! More specifically the Canon books. I might pick up some Legends books but only if there is nothing left in Canon.
I knew going in that it was going to be a chore to listen to, but the narrator made it so difficult to concentrate on the story. He added no emotion to the characters or scenes. I probably will not be listening to another of his recordings.
