Publisher's Summary

Here is the original American full dramatization, as broadcast on National Public Radio. The Fellowship is broken; the quest to destroy the Ring seems already shrouded in disaster. But as the evil lord Sauron readies his armies for war, Frodo and Sam continue their lonely journey toward Mordor, guided only by Gollum, a deceitful and tortured creature, helplessly in thrall to the Ring's dark power.

    Poor Recording

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    It's a classic story and a great book. The recording is from an old radio broadcast with many of the author's insights and emotional descriptions removed and replaced with sound effects. Some may find it a welcome change, but I felt let down and unattached to the story.

    Would you be willing to try another one of An Ensemble Cast’s performances?

    No

    An excellent rendition!

    "The Hobbit (Dramatized)" and "the Lord of the Rings (Dramatized)" were the first books I bought through Audible. I'd heard this recounting on the radio and owned cassettes of them back in the 70's and was eager to rehear them in this format - which I have done several times.
    I've been a fan of the good Professor's books since the mid 60's and account this rendition to be a VERY close "second" to the books, themselves, and the unabridged rendition now available!
    They are an excellent telling and well worth purchasing!
