The narration was good and allowed me to listen at double-speed quite easily.
Similar to other Agatha Christie books and a good, easy read.
I felt like the narrator was adding too much "cuteness" to the way she inflected throughout the reading. Shakespeare is hard to follow, but the way it is read can help alleviate the unfamiliarity of the language. This narration did not help with that. I ended up switching to the written version and then I was able to follow the story line and appreciate it. I was lost in the narrated version.
Loved LOTR and was expecting something awesome. Instead of a good story, I found an author who was enamored with his ability to create interesting names and linguistic details that added very little to the story. It was also overtold with every event being told as if it was the most amazing thing that had ever happened.
It was an interesting look into a different time in Middle Earth. The relationship between dragons, men, elves and orcs are all covered here and have some interest value.
