    "Great reader, captivating story, beautifully writt"

    A trifecta. Tolkien is a brilliant mind, architecting a vast world as a setting for an epic journey. Wonderful reading of the work. I enjoyed reading along with the narration.

    "Great past of time"

    Working long days listening to roar of a torch is deafening. I wear ear protection for the first year but then I became bored.. At first I started is listening to music, I grew bored of that to. Then I started my first book I liked it and I shared my findings and now. Everyone I knew gave me book suggestions. Now I do it all the time.

    "THE SECOND IN A TRILOGY"

    Nicely woven tale from when books were woven with a rich tapestry for the mind to use to paint the picture. Enjoy.
