The reading of this book is fantastic. He is easy to understand and his inflection is wonderful. The voices he does for various characters are entertaining and very realistic (as real as orcs can be I suppose), his acting as Gollum is so good it grossed me out almost every time he had a line of dialogue. Great listening!!
This is not a light weight piece of literature but well worth the effort it takes to get into the plot. Tolkien is a master story teller, and Rob Inglis the perfect voice for a complex line up of characters. By the end I was both charmed and horrified by the different personalities. I found parts of myself in almost all of them, I'm afraid.
On to THE RETURN OF THE KING!
Rob Inglis did a fantastic job reading this series plus The Hobbit. This is a great way for someone who has never read the books to be able to appreciate the purity of the books that were tampered with by the film makers. Highly recommended to all.
His voice is perfect for this story. I'm so happy they chose him to read this series!
Too long to listen to in one sitting but I definitely listened to it as often as I could.
quite like the other books in the trilogy thos book has great narration, lots of detail. however its my favorite book in the trilogy and was fun to listen to
I know the written book had songs/poems, but they are very hard to listen to. ..annoying actually as they don't make sense as sentences, I found my self listening in bed to relax. but the singing made me want to hit the fast forward
