This is great for people who find it hard to read. I've tried to read the Book 'Lord of the Rings' and failed but this Cd set has opened the Tolkien world up to me. Also the great thing is it's 52 hours long, which means your money is well spent. I would recommend this to anyone, it's excellent

Bob Inglis is the best for reading the Lord of the Rings aloud (although James Earl Jones would be cool also). Are you reading this series to your children or going on a long drive? This set is a must purchase! My voice gave out and I'm thankful for the back up.

In 1967 I was introduced to The Hobbit. Halfway through that book I knew I had to find The Lord of the Rings. I soon found myself drawn into the realm of Middle Earth with all its intricacies. Since that first reading I have re-read the books a number of times. Through the years I have collected several "dramatized" versions of this timeless classic. I have always looked for, but was unable to find, an unabridged rendition of the books until now. Bob Inglis' masterful reading makes each character spring to life as your imagination is stirred with colorful images of the unfolding war of the ring. This is a must for all fans of J.R.R. Tolkien.

I have been reading these books over and over for 30 years. I like Tolkien's books better than any books I've ever read in my life. Mr. Inglis, while he gets a lot right, doesn't have the emotional attachment to the story that I do. At some parts, especially the really good parts, I am disappointed with how he misses the gravity of the situation, and reads it like it is any other part of the book. Also, during Pippin's oath to Lord Denethor of Minis Tirith, he reads Denethor's part of the oath in Pippin's voice, kind of taking me out of the story. It's kind of like getting splashed unexpectedly with cold water when sunbathing. However, he gets Gollum so right that it is scary. I don't like the way he gives Merry and Pippin the poorer dialect. They should both be posh, like Frodo and Bilbo. He could do better on Gandalf's voice as well. But the story is amazing, and to hear it unabridged is very wonderful. I recommend it, though I can think of other people who might read it better. Wouldn't Sean Connery be excellent?

A wonderful representation of Tolkiens work. It was performed in the way of the old Bards, often breaking into actually song where it was only mentioned in the book. You feel as if you are actually there traveling with the company. I will treasure and listen to over and over again.

You can close you're eyes and you're there with them. I have seen all three movies and just now getting around to the books (well tapes).I can close my eyes and visualize the journey as I listen. This trilogy will always be a classic. I have just finished the fellowship of the ring and can't wait to start the two towers. J. R. R. Tolkien has done an excellent job with the trilogy, He has brought to life all the characters. In the movies the time-line was compressed into just a couple of years. In the books the journey of the fellowship didn't start for almost 20 years. This is a must to read....

I can say enough about this series. I love everyone of this book and the many characters in it. Elves... I love Tolkien elves... They are the most awesome race and a very uplifting people. Their beauty and characteristic are of nobles heroes. The places and their description are mystical. The kings and kingdoms are written in an awesome way. I highly recommend all Tolkien books.
