    A BBC radio full-cast dramatisation of the first book in JRR Tolkien's Lord of the Rings trilogy. Brian Sibley's famous 1981 adaptation, starring Ian Holm and Michael Hordern, has been divided into three corresponding parts, with newly recorded beginning and end narration by Ian Holm.

    "The LOTR dramatisation"
    Overall

    i love this adaptation of the LOTR. all the actors do justice to the characters in this beloved classic. i especially enjoyed the voice of ian holm (who plays bilbo in the movies) giving life to frodo. i highly recommend all three (TLOTR, TTT, and TROTK) dramatisations from BBC.

    Jane Austen's engaging and infuriating heroine sparkles in this superb full-cast BBC Radio 4 dramatisation, which stars Angharad Rees as Emma.

    Overall

    although emma is not my favorite austen novel, this adapation was very entertaining. i actually own this on cassettes which i purchased years ago. i enjoyed it so much i wanted it on my mp3 player to listened to at any time. if only bbc would adapt pride & prejudice into a radio dramatisation i would be in heaven.

    The youngest child of debtor William Dorrit, Amy is born in Marshalsea prison. She and her father are befriended by Arthur Clennam, whose mother employs "little Dorrit" as a seamstress. The fortunes of the Dorrits undergo an extreme change when William inherits a fortune, and the family move to Italy. Back in England, Arthur Clennam finds himself the victim of a massive fraud and ends up in Marshalsea. There he is found by Little Dorrit, whose fortune has had no effect on her generosity and humility.

    Overall

    i thoroughly enjoyed this dramatisation. i have already listened to it twice. it captures the essence of the book without getting too wordy or tedious. i am also currently listening ro the unabridged reading of the book.

    In the ancient lands of Middle-earth, a place of elves and dwarves, Orcs and wizards, the darkest evil and the brightest good, a hobbit named Frodo Baggins embarks on a perilous quest: to carry the One Ring, ruler of all the Rings of Power, into the shadowy land of Mordor and destroy it in the fires where it was forged.

    David says: "Classic stuff!"
    "american npr adaptation of the lord of the rings"
    Overall

    This is not a bad dramatisation of a classic. i had to have it because i am a huge tolkien fan (i already own the audiobook on cds). but if you are bothered by the american pronunciations, i would highly recommend the bbc dramatisation of the LOTR with ian holm voicing frodo. the bbc version is also available from audible. i give the bbc versions 5 stars.

  • Jane Eyre, Volume 1

    One of the greatest love stories ever written, Jane Eyre is the tale of a young woman entangled with the powerful Mr. Rochester. What lurks in the attic at Thornfield, the ancestral home of the surly Mr. Rochester? Will the governess Jane Eyre discover his secret, and having discovered it, live to regret that knowledge? Battling inside Jane are passion and prudence; she struggles to survive the turmoil they cause.

    Amy says: "Best ever"
    "excellent reading of a classic"
    Overall

    Jane Eyre is one of my favorite books. I try to read the story once a year. Now I will listen to it every year. Amanda Root does an excellent job of reading this book. My only complaint it that the book is divided into two parts.
    I would also like to respond to an ealier review where the listener complained of 'jane' being called 'Janet'. If you read the book carefully, Jane is called 'Janet' by Mr. Rochester several times in the book. Check out Chapters 22 and 24.
