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.

    "BEST FANTASY SERIES EVER!!!!"

    The lord of the rings series is one to never be over looked, it's a classic and its masterfully written by a genius. J R R Tolkien is a wizard in his own right for creating such a timeless master piece. Give this book a shot if you enjoyed the movies or the fantasy genre in general. It will not disappoint !!

    "Awesome"

    The narrator is perfect for this. He does all the voices so well and all the songs are spot on to how I would imagine.

    "Get ready for some elven lore and a lot more songs"

    If you haven't read the hobbit or had ingles read it to you do that first. He does an amazing performance with both stories. The lord of the rings bring a more in depth look if middle earth and it's lore. The first book covers Frodo's tale. If you don't know who Frodo is, then stop reading this and read the hobbit and come back.

    "The Fellowship of the Ring in Review"

    An excellent and foundational tale of fantasy, corruption and friendship that the world would do well to never forget, and to never stop learning from.

    "What a delight!"

    This is simply wonderful and delightful reading. As good in its own way as the BBC dramatization. So glad I listened!
