    The Fellowship of the Ring, the first volume in the trilogy, tells of the fateful power of the One Ring. It begins a magnificent tale of adventure that will plunge the members of the Fellowship of the Ring into a perilous quest and set the stage for the ultimate clash between the powers of good and evil.

    Would you listen to The Fellowship of the Ring again? Why?

    Yes, for sure. It was just a pleasure to listen to it. The narrator made it so captivating... Even though the book is of course from The Lord of The Rings series and wouldn't need further reasons to listen to.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Fellowship of the Ring?

    Surprisingly the songs. I loved that the narrator managed to put into melody the songs on the book and actually sing them.


    Which character – as performed by Rob Inglis – was your favorite?

    Elrond. Perhaps because of the contrast with the Elrond from the movies. Rob's voice for this character was lighter and melodious.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If I could, I would, but it's a bit too long for me to listen in one sitting :)

  • The Screwtape Letters

    • UNABRIDGED (3 hrs and 59 mins)
    • By C. S. Lewis
    • Narrated By Joss Ackland

    A masterpiece of satire, this classic has entertained and enlightened readers the world over with its sly and ironic portrayal of human life from the vantage point of Screwtape, a highly placed assistant to "Our Father Below". At once wildly comic, deadly serious, and strikingly original, C. S. Lewis gives us the correspondence of the worldly-wise old devil to his nephew Wormwood, a novice demon in charge of securing the damnation of an ordinary young man. The Screwtape Letters is the most engaging and humorous account of temptation - and triumph over it - ever written.

    James says: "This is the Best Audio Screwtape, a Masterpiece"
    "Great performance by the narrator"

    Where does The Screwtape Letters rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Definitely on the Top 3 of audiobooks I've listened to so far.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Basically there's only one character: Screwtape.


    What about Joss Ackland’s performance did you like?

    I really loved his performance. Witty and brings the sarcastic tone of the book to life.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Can't really remember. But overall I've enjoyed it.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't really like the last part, "Screwtape proposes a toast".
