The Return of the King is the towering climax to J. R. R. Tolkien’s trilogy that tells the saga of the hobbits of Middle-earth and the great War of the Rings. In this concluding volume, Frodo and Sam make a terrible journey to the heart of the Land of the Shadow in a final reckoning with the power of Sauron.
In addition to narrating the prose passages, Rob Inglis sings the trilogy’s songs and poems a capella, using melodies composed by Inglis and Claudia Howard, the Recorded Books studio director. This recording also contains Tolkien’s preface to the trilogy, including a prior history of the ring, and shire habitat, history, and folkways.

I was very pleased, as I was with the two previous 2 books, the reader and story. I was also very pleased that the audible story included much of the appendix season the last book giving the history of the main characters and families.
A very enjoyable experience.
Long road trip and a great narrator
The first two
Brings the characters to life with his voice
Great final book to a great trilogy
Return of the King is a classic, so whether or not I enjoyed this audible book was 100% dependent on the voice actor. He really brought it home in the last book of the LOTR trilogy. I can say with confidence I will be listening to this again.
