This is truly a classic that is well worth listening to. The narrator does it justice and, if you can learn to enjoy the occasional song, he fits the part well.
I was not as impressed with the narration of this story as have been others. It took something away from the story. I'm sure he is a great narrator, but missed the mark in this story. Overall it was a good beginning to a great trilogy.
I was hesitant and listening to the full story but I'm glad I did . No I did watch the movies the storyline was a lot more detailed and had a vast connection to the past of Middle earth.
'Tis a great classic. I have been wanting to read this for many years now, and it has been even better than I expected. The narrator was very good, perfect for this book, always interesting and sang the poetry well. Highly recommended!
