Rob inglis does a wonderful job bringing these stories to life! You will end up buying the entire set from audible it's well worth it.
I thought I was the only one who was bored by these books, but then I read other reviews and realized I am not! They are extremely slow moving and the author takes 300 words to describe something that could be done in 10! There is very little action in the first third of the book!! (The movies are a 1000 times better!) I only bought these because they were on sale and I was determined to read the classic book versus watch the movie first.
We finished in the car tonight and my 9 year old son was the picture of stunned disbelief. How can they leave Us hanging like that?
This voice actor knows what he's doing and makes the books amazing.
He is comparable and better than Roy Dotrice the guy who did the Game of Thrones books, and that guys is fantastic too!
I loved the narration. For those who've seen the movie first, the actual book (which came first) is more detailed and more exciting. I encourage everyone to purchase this narration The Lord of the Rings
This is a must listen because of the impact the book made on our mainstream culture. However, it has a real tendency to drag on and on. The narrator is a perfect fit for the book and the series.
