I've read LOTR many times and feel the narrative is captured perfectly. Tolkien would be proud of this I'm sure!
I love the story it is one of my all time favorites. the narrator does a great job with the voices and the story. however, I so not like his singing voice and his deep breath in between sentences are very prominent. the chapters are broken up a little weird in some places. but definitely worth buying and the best unabridged version.
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?
