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

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

    Imaginative Epic Exhilarating


    What did you like best about this story?

    Tolkien created a vast world with rich history. Each character, not just the main ones, are well thought out with their own unique history and personality. You feel like you're only getting a glimpse or slice of a larger picture. The story is complete, but you want to know more about everything else going on in the world.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If I had that much time to sit and listen then, yes haha

    "Love this series!"

    A wonderful rendition of the classic series. The narrator does a terrific job on all the characters. I don't necessarily think he sang the songs the way Tolkien meant for them to be sang, but it is only a small distraction in an otherwise beautiful reading.

    "The narrator ruined the book"

    I knew there would be differences between the book and movie but didn't expect that big a difference.

    The narrator ruined the book for me though. I could not stand his "Singing" every chapter.

    Story
    "Good beginning to a great trilogy"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Fellowship of the Ring to be better than the print version?

    Haven't read it, so can't say


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Fellowship of the Ring?

    All of the parts that weren't in the movie and the fact the movie changes a lot of things


    What does Rob Inglis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Really brings the characters to life


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It had some pretty tense moments. I held in my bowel movement for an extra 40 minutes to finish a part. Worth it.


    Any additional comments?

    Great beginning

    "Magical and inspiring."

    this work was excellently narrated in such a way that Tolkien's words come to life. It was a joy to listen to and I look forward to hearing the next installment.

    incredible epic tale, very well read.

    depth of Tolkien 's description is truly a masterpiece, both of storytelling and insight into character and motivation.
