Would you listen to The Adventures of Tom Bombadil again? Why?
I will definitely listen to this again. I am not a fan of poetry, but The Adventures of Tom Bombadil were written by a master and the reading by Jacobi is excellent.
What about Derek Jacobi’s performance did you like?
Derek Jacobi's reading is brilliant. The poetry flowed smoothly and his reading was never dull and boring like it can be if someone becomes a bit monotone. He never does and I could probably listen to a thousand page book read by him and probably still be enjoying it.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes it was as the poems are only short and it was a joy to read and listen.
A very pleasant collection of tale in poem form. A trip through the land of hobbit and human and elf..

loved this audio beautifully read by one
of my favourite voices, the reading
was well crafted recommend
Tolkien's verse is simple and delightful and, at times, very beautiful. Derek Jacobi is, of course, inimitable.
The imagery in the poems are brilliantly expressed. It's like a audio-visual painting.
The narrator skillfully, engages in communicating the right tone of voice which aids the imagery of the content.
