I read the entire series in high school and decided to listen to it again on Audible. The story is, of course, a masterpiece and well-worth listening to again. My only complaint is that this is an older recording. The narrator does a good job--no real complaints but this is such an iconic and popular story that I think it deserves being updated to include multiple narrators such as Audible has done with Ender's Game, Dracula, Dune, etc...
The best audio book series I have ever listened to. The narrative keeps you drawn in. Ill look for other books with this narrator. I have to admit, the lineage of the kings got a little thick at points but I also learned a lot about how events fit together. Bravo!
The story is unmatched. I have listened to the LOTR at least three times each year and I NEVER grow tired of it. That and the stellar narration makes these aufiobooks my all-time favourites!
A fine finish for one of the best trilogies ever. The ending recaps provide depth and warmth to what we have seen in the cinema. I enjoyed all three.
I'm glad they included the appendices. The performance is fantastic, the story is good. Probably the best of the trilogy.
