There are a number of Lord of the Rings recordings out there, including a superb dramatization by the BBC. But there is only ONE set of unabridged recordings of the trilogy -- from Recorded Books and read by Rob Inglis. For many years, I've treasured the set of these recordings I have on compact disc. But never before now have I been able to find them for audio download -- until now!!! Words cannot express how thrilled I am to listen to the Lord of the Rings on my iPod (and on my Kindle too!) Audible members who have never yet heard the saga read in its entirety, you are in for a very special treat indeed! In a whole new way will you enjoy the story you've read years ago and have seen transformed into the motion pictures. It'll be almost as if you're experiencing the story for the very first time.

What did you love best about The Fellowship of the Ring?
I love this story for it's timelessness, and I love seeing how other stories across the decades have been inspired by it.
Would you be willing to try another one of Rob Inglis’s performances?
No. While I felt he was a good fit for the story, I still found him incredibly boring.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No, much like the Fellowships journey, I wanted it to go on and just savor it.

This may be my favourite book, and the narrator is wonderful, even though some of his choices are not as I would have read them, but it's only a minor nitpick. If you've only ever seen the movie, do yourself a favour and pick up this audiobook now.
