Publisher's Summary

Wir schreiben das Jahr 3001, Drittes Zeitalter nach der Großen Schlacht. Im Auenland gehen merkwürdige Dinge vor. Sauron, der Böse, ist wieder erstarkt und die Schatten seines Reiches Mordor werden länger. Bald ist ganz Mittelerde vom Untergang bedroht. Sauron fordert sein Eigentum zurück: den Einen Ring, den Ring der Macht. Dieser ist unter allen Geschöpfen, stolzen Elben, klugen Zauberern, Menschen und Zwergen ausgerechnet Frodo, dem Hobbit, in die Hände gefallen. Nur er allein kann Mittelerde retten und macht sich auf zum Schicksalsberg. Und so beginnen die Großen Jahre...

Wonderful production

Would you consider the audio edition of Der Herr der Ringe. Das Hörspiel to be better than the print version?

I don't think this question can be answered, it really depends on your preferences. As a teenager, I listened to this dramatization more often than I read the books, so it influenced my imagination much more than the books did. (You can probably imagine how weird it was for me at first when the movies were released and I had to get used to new voices and faces, haha.)


What was one of the most memorable moments of Der Herr der Ringe. Das Hörspiel?

I have to admit that I teared up a little when I realized that Audible had this old dramatized audio version of Herr der Ringe. It was made in 1991/92 and was hugely popular among my nerd friends when I was a teenager. We listened to it so often that we could recite certain passages. I loved it back then and still love it.


What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Great voices, and some very well-known German actors at that. My favorites are Hans-Peter Hallwachs (Aragorn), the late Dietmar Mues (Gollum), and the late Manfred Steffen (narrator).


Any additional comments?

This is also something for advanced German learners who are already familiar with LotR!
