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

    "fantastic"

    Only issue was all the songs sounded the same, same tempo and pitch and everything. Felt like it was lacking a bit of creativity but otherwise a fantastic listen.

    Just a nerdy girl who's an Audict. I like coffee, Star Trek, knitting, spinning, weaving, and Warcraft. But most of all? Books.

    "classic done to perfection"

    Tolkien has a very special place in my heart. And this is in every way a perfect telling. The fact that the songs are sung and the poetry recited in their entirety makes this the best version in existence.

    "Best fiction book I have ever read"

    The art of Tolkien's writings is so beautiful.
    The clarity and surety of moral distinction is inspiring
    Tolkien invested so much time into this series. He even invented his own language.
    Tolkien love he sounds of words and names. He then wove his love throughout his books with each character.

    "The Voice killed this for me..."

    I love this story and was eager to finally read the books as I had only seen the movies. However after starting out I constantly was battling to pay attention due to the readers voice and performance. Perhaps others may disagree but he reminds me of a British college professor. Thankfully I found an alternate audio performance (not on audible) that rescued my experience with these books. I'm loving the story as I knew I would... but sadly... this is not the performance I was hoping for given this epic classic.

    "great narration, shitty studio."

    would have been great if there wasn't some woman jabbering her head off in the background throughout the whole book.
