    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.

    This is the first time I feel a movie is better than it's book. I just had to stop after a few hours.

  • Roots: The Saga of an American Family

    • UNABRIDGED (30 hrs and 7 mins)
    • By Alex Haley
    • Narrated By Avery Brooks

    Why we think it’s a great listen: A masterpiece like none other, Brooks’ powerful performance of Haley’s words has been known to leave listeners in tears. It begins with a birth in an African village in 1750, and ends two centuries later at a funeral in Arkansas. And in that time span, an unforgettable cast of men, women, and children come to life, many of them based on the people from Alex Haley's own family tree.

    What did you love best about Roots?

    I almost put it down after about 4 or 5 hours. It started to drone on for a while, but then it picked up. From the details, it is obvious the author has taken liberties, but the story is good and the inclusion of facts makes the story very believable.

    I love the performer's voice. A couple of times I had to back up just a bit to make out what was said.
