    The Fellowship is broken; the quest to destroy the Ring seems already shrouded in disaster. But as the evil lord Sauron readies his armies for war, Frodo and Sam continue their lonely journey toward Mordor, guided only by Gollum, a deceitful and tortured creature, helplessly in thrall to the Ring's dark power.

    T. Blackwell says: "Not the reading of the book...."
    "Weak cast for a hacked up version"

    Story

    With a story that has such a rabid fan base, you have to be careful not to tick people off. Sadly I did not notice that it said "Abridged" until I had already purchased it. I listened to it with the hope I would not notice what was missing. This was not the case. The cast came off sounding cartoonish and goofy like a 1920's radio drama instead of maintaining the more mature feeling this epic tale deserves. Maybe it was recorded several decades ago back when audio books were done with 20 cassette tapes? It sure sounded like it. This story deserves better.
