Entertaining beautiful story
Stand By Me - This book was about the relationships of the hobbits and those they met along their journey. Their loyalty and love for each other kept them safe in perilous times which they were completely unprepared for in all ways other than spirit.
Rob Inglis narration offers a deeper level to the story with the song, voices, language. One could not keep up with all the characters as well when reading especially Golum. Inglis brings a completely different level of creepy to his character that would not be possible reading the text. The songs would have much less meaning being read than hearing them.I have spoken to many people who have read the trilogy and found it difficult to follow and some gave up before finishing. I highly recommend listening to Inglis' version as I believe his talent sheds a new light on the story. By far exceeds the movies entertainment value.
At first I wasn't sure I would like this book but after the 3rd chapter I was drawn in. The narrator did an excellent job with the different characters creating an audio movie really. I recommend this book if you enjoy historical fiction with naval adventure and tiny bit of romance thrown in.
I loved listening to the narrator (I recognized her voice from the TV show 24) read this lovely story of life in Iran for a girl in the 1700's. The language of the book illustrated the story with the colors and knots of a Persian rug. The interview with the author was illuminating as well.
