    "Great story, slow at points."

    Great second book but some points got really slow and hard to listen too. If the performer wasn't as good as he was I would have not been able to continue.

    "Second story"

    Great continuation of book one. The narrator does all the voices and sings the songs. I'd recommend this to anyone

    "Perennial classic"

    A well performed classic! Completely worth the listen! If you have a long trip, or commute, this is #2 in the series you should consume at least 1ce.

    "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.
