    "Classic tale, first-rate performance"

    I had not read this trilogy since, well a very long time ago. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading them again. This is truly a classic tale and Rob Inglis is perfect! He is exceptionally easy to listen to, and the characters really came to life with his wonderful voices and magnificant reading style! This series is a treasure in every respect, and well worth a credit if this is a genre you enjoy.

    "Finally LOTR available in 'read aloud' format"
    What made the experience of listening to The Two Towers the most enjoyable?

    I've been searching for the Lord of the Rings read out loud -- unabridged -- for a long time, so was thrilled to find all three books suddenly available on Audible. Being able to slip my iPod out and dive into that glorious world for awhile is nothing short of a gift.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    LOTR is too much of a deep classic for this question. All the characters and all their facets are the the threads woven into one rich tapestry.


    What three words best describe Rob Inglis’s performance?

    Don't sing songs! Rob Inglis managed to colour the audio world with decent voices for the different characters. No easy task given the numerous male roles. However, I've started to fast forward everytime he breaks into song -- as it's like chewing tin foil with the ears. This performance also sounds a little dated -- like it's coming from a 50's movie. I hope Jim Dale will one day be enticed to undertake the project.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Everything but the songs -- promise!

    "The journey continues"

    More action packed than the first. The narrator is amazing. Well done. Drags at times but is well worth the read.

    "Gripping story, excellently read"

    We all know that JRR Tolkein's Lord of the Rings series is great. This audiobook version is immersive and gripping, performed by a single reader, complete with voices for each of the myriad of characters. If you're one of those "the book was better than the movie" types, this version has the best of both.

    I love this story and the narrator gave a fine performance unabridged and not a radio show.
