    A BBC radio full-cast dramatisation of the first book in JRR Tolkien's Lord of the Rings trilogy. Brian Sibley's famous 1981 adaptation, starring Ian Holm and Michael Hordern, has been divided into three corresponding parts, with newly recorded beginning and end narration by Ian Holm.

    What disappointed you about The Lord of the Rings?

    The dramatization of the story was horrible and distracting, took away from appreciating the writing and the story.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Whatever my next listen is, it will not be a dramatization.


    Would you be willing to try another one of the narrators’s performances?

    No.


    What character would you cut from The Lord of the Rings?

    Why would I cut any character out? The fact this question is included as part of the guided review means that Audible does not value the original story as written by Tolkien; Audible is promoting a bastardized listening experience that is not authentic to the author's original creative vision.


    Any additional comments?

    If you really want to promote books and reading, then don't sell dramatizations on your website. Totally a waste of money.
