    The Return of the King is the towering climax to J. R. R. Tolkien’s trilogy that tells the saga of the hobbits of Middle-earth and the great War of the Rings. In this concluding volume, Frodo and Sam make a terrible journey to the heart of the Land of the Shadow in a final reckoning with the power of Sauron. In addition to narrating the prose passages, Rob Inglis sings the trilogy’s songs and poems a capella, using melodies composed by Inglis and Claudia Howard, the Recorded Books studio director.

    What did you love best about The Return of the King?

    Can I say everything? That the book is a true classic goes without saying, and this superb audio performance brings the story to life.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Return of the King?

    The climax at the Cracks of Doom. Even though you know the story, the drama of whether Frodo and Sam will succeed in the quest has you on the edge of your seat.


    What about Rob Inglis’s performance did you like?

    The range of Rob's vocalisation brings something unique to each character.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I wouldn't make a film... Peter Jackson's effort is too good to follow!

    Here is the novel that will be forever considered a triumph of the imagination. Set on the desert planet Arrakis, Dune is the story of the boy Paul Atreides, who would become the mysterious man known as Maud'dib. He would avenge the traitorous plot against his noble family and would bring to fruition humankind's most ancient and unattainable dream.

    Joshua says: "Wonderful production!"
    "A joy to listen to one of my all time favorites"

    If you could sum up Dune in three words, what would they be?

    masterpiece of world-building


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jessica is my favorite because of her faith and love for Leto and Paul - though she is overtaken by the enormity of what she created.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The different voices really bring the characters to life.(Though it would have even been better if they had dropped all the "he said", "she answered" etc. from the reading and just spoken the dialog uninterrupted).


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No - I know it too well for that
