J.R.R. Tolkien absolutely -- Rob Inglis definitely no! A fantastic story made frustrating by this performer.
A tie between Gandalf and Aragorn. Both are honorable men who are not afraid of the long heroic quest.
Scott Brick or Rene Auberjinois.
I first read LOTR in 1968 and have worn out three sets of paperbacks and have a well-used set of hardbacks. I also wore out a set of the trilogy on tape by the original radio
Cast, and have watched the movie version many times
Since all those versions were amazing, I expected this Audible version to be, also. Rob Inglis, however, reads these books as though he is unfamiliar with the story. He pronounces many of the names in a different way from any other version and seems to make all the characters sound the same. His performance made listening difficult and if I were not such a total Tolkein fan, I wouldn't have finished listening.
I will definitely listen to this book again. Everything about it appeals to me.
It is amazingly educational while telling a fascinating story. Also I have done a lot of hiking and backpacking and can easily relate to the characters.
It is hard to say which scene is my favorite. The story goes from one great tale to another.
Sure, but there is a lot to be savored and not rushed through.
I love this book and had read it three or four times before buying it on Audible. I have had some other experiences where a favorite book was not a good listen because of the performance. This time I was very glad I decided to listen. The performance was just right so I now have a great way to continue enjoying one if my favorite books.
