have read it before and liked it, but struggled to finish this time. The story contains so many characters and places that once you lose concentration you completely forget what you just heard.
also, there are some issues with the sound.
at some points i could hear the chapter name being read over and over

Audio glitches, tonally inappropriate music, uneven pacing (to be expected), overall great story, Great narrator.

fantastic listen, only issue is that in one of the (luckily) more boring chapters, the title replays about 20 times

The stories were great, but that's to Tolkien's credit and not the creators of the audiobook. Numerous times throughout the audiobook I encountered glitches in the track where suddenly the narrator would be repeating the title of the chapter or other pieces of the story in the background, thus resulting in near gibberish as the doubled tracks made it impossible to hear what was being said. I went back a few times to check if it had simply been my phone that glitched out but found that each instance of this glitch occurred consistently at the same timestamp. In other words it's a production error. And considering how many times this occurred, the production company have no excuse not to be absolutely ashamed of their work. Had it happened once I would have shrugged it off as a simple mistake, but when it happens just about a dozen times it becomes negligence. I recommend Tolkien's The Silmarillion, but I can't say I recommend this particular edition of the audiobook.
