I've been searching for the Lord of the Rings read out loud -- unabridged -- for a long time, so was thrilled to find all three books suddenly available on Audible. Being able to slip my iPod out and dive into that glorious world for awhile is nothing short of a gift.
LOTR is too much of a deep classic for this question. All the characters and all their facets are the the threads woven into one rich tapestry.
Don't sing songs! Rob Inglis managed to colour the audio world with decent voices for the different characters. No easy task given the numerous male roles. However, I've started to fast forward everytime he breaks into song -- as it's like chewing tin foil with the ears. This performance also sounds a little dated -- like it's coming from a 50's movie. I hope Jim Dale will one day be enticed to undertake the project.
Everything but the songs -- promise!
