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

    "Enjoyable Again"

    I watched the cartoons as a child and enjoyed the films recently. Listening to the books and picking out the slight and not so hidden differences were fun. It's a genre I throughly love. It's even spurned myself into rewarding the films to see again to changes from book to screen.

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

    I wasn't sure how to approach this. I grew up with the radio series being the definitive version.

    To my delight, this is a superbly narrated version, that really brings alive the whole book.

    "A classic in every way"

    This is truly a classic that is well worth listening to. The narrator does it justice and, if you can learn to enjoy the occasional song, he fits the part well.

    "A GOOD LISTEN ON A SLOW DAY"

    I was not as impressed with the narration of this story as have been others. It took something away from the story. I'm sure he is a great narrator, but missed the mark in this story. Overall it was a good beginning to a great trilogy.
