Publisher's Summary

Inspired by The Hobbit and begun in 1937, The Lord of the Rings is a trilogy that J.R.R. Tolkien created to provide "the necessary background of history for Elvish tongues". From these academic aspirations was born one of the most popular and imaginative works in English literature.

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.

In this splendid, unabridged audio production of Tolkien's great work, all the inhabitants of a magical universe – hobbits, elves, and wizards – step colorfully into life. Rob Inglis' narration has been praised as a masterpiece of audio.

©1983 Christopher R. Tolkien, Michael H.R.Tolkien, John F.R. Tolkien, and Priscilla M.A.R.Tolkien (P)1990 Recorded Books

    "Lots of walking, but a classic"

    It is The Lord of the rings and it is a classic. It is a little dry at first, but you catch on quick. Better than the movie. Well worth a listen. Narration was phenomenal.

    "Wonderful"

    I listen to this on my commute so the length was really good. The narrator is very good, especially with the songs and the many character voices.

    "Beautiful"
    If you could sum up The Fellowship of the Ring in three words, what would they be?

    Tolkien is the master of adventure stories. Beautifully written.


    Have you listened to any of Rob Inglis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Rob Inglis is perfect in his depiction of the characters.

    "Fantastic"

    The reader and stories are beyond measure. I have enjoyed listening to this book and will continue with the same reader for the next two. I have read the books before, but the audiobook is fantastic.
