    The Return of the King is the towering climax to J. R. R. Tolkien’s trilogy that tells the saga of the hobbits of Middle-earth and the great War of the Rings. In this concluding volume, Frodo and Sam make a terrible journey to the heart of the Land of the Shadow in a final reckoning with the power of Sauron. In addition to narrating the prose passages, Rob Inglis sings the trilogy’s songs and poems a capella, using melodies composed by Inglis and Claudia Howard, the Recorded Books studio director.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I've just listened to The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings, and Rob Inglis' readings make me forget the Peter Jackson movies and remember my own imagined versions from reading Tolkien as a child. He performs the voices marvelously, and his singing is wonderful, rich and mellifluous. For yourself or a Tolkien fan, these are the perfect audiobooks. Buy them immediately! You won't regret it.

    Declaring he needs to clear his conscience, a dying man walks into Scotland Yard and confesses that he killed his cousin five years earlier during the Great War. When Inspector Ian Rutledge presses for details, the man evades his questions, revealing only that he hails from a village east of London. With little information and no body to open an official inquiry, Rutledge begins to look into the case on his own. Less than two weeks later, the alleged killer’s body is found floating in the Thames, a bullet in the back of his head.

    Judith A. Weller says: "Most exciting by Todd Yet"
    "Great mysteries and a wonderful narrator"

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Confession to be better than the print version?

    Simon Prebble has read most of the audio versions of Charles Todd's, and his readings are wonderful. Very rich and painful and macabre, much like the inspector himself. This wasn't my favorite of the series, but as usual, Prebble weaves the tale like a good play. You won't want to stop listening.

    Like every other hobbit, Bilbo Baggins likes nothing better than a quiet evening in his snug hole in the ground, dining on a sumptuous dinner in front of a fire. But when a wandering wizard captivates him with tales of the unknown, Bilbo becomes restless. Soon he joins the wizard’s band of homeless dwarves in search of giant spiders, savage wolves, and other dangers. Bilbo quickly tires of the quest for adventure and longs for the security of his familiar home. But before he can return to his life of comfort, he must face the greatest threat of all.

    Marked by tragedy, traumatized at the age of eight, Michael, now 18, is no ordinary young man. Besides not uttering a single word in 10 years, he discovers the one thing he can somehow do better than anyone else. Whether it's a locked door without a key, a padlock with no combination, or even an eight hundred-pound safe...he can open them all. It's an unforgivable talent. A talent that will make young Michael a hot commodity with the wrong people.

    G. Sabin says: "A decent story, a little slow"
    "Should this really be a mystery read?"
    Overall

    This book might have a secret, but it's not a mystery and suspense story, it's a novel. The narrator is excellent though and really pulls you into the story.
