    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.

    Erin says: "Dramitization"
    "Very well done."

    Any additional comments?

    My only complaint about this series is that some of the voices were a little too close together in sound and it got a little confusing as to whom was speaking.

    Prime example is the voices of Gandalf and Aragorn .

    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I am actually disappointed thus far with this book the story is just dragging on and on and on, less than two hours to go and they are hardly near the mine yet.

    The Narrator is good, and I think he may be my only reason for being able to stick it out this far.

  • 1984: New Classic Edition

    • UNABRIDGED (11 hrs and 26 mins)
    • By George Orwell

    Story
    (2609)

    George Orwell depicts a gray, totalitarian world dominated by Big Brother and its vast network of agents, including the Thought Police - a world in which news is manufactured according to the authorities' will and people live tepid lives by rote. Winston Smith, a hero with no heroic qualities, longs only for truth and decency. But living in a social system in which privacy does not exist and where those with unorthodox ideas are brainwashed or put to death, he knows there is no hope for him.

    Kit McIlvaine (GirlPluggedN) says: "Come one, Come all into 1984!"
    "One of the best books I have listened to thus far."

    If you could sum up 1984 in three words, what would they be?

    Big Brother's Watching!


    What about Simon Prebble’s performance did you like?

    Excellent performance.


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

    A little too close to what is going on today in the world.
