Product description

From AudioFile

[Editor's Note: The following is a combined review with THE TWO TOWERS.]--There is something incongruous about American voices in ancient Britain (or to be precise, Middle Earth). Nonetheless, these American productions of the Tolkien classics--originally broadcast on NPR Playhouse--are well worth hearing. While not as elaborate as the BBC production (which featured Ian Holm), this adaptation is more accessible to a wider audience. Gail Chugg, who also plays the character of Gollum, narrates the story with an easy storyteller's style. James Arrington reads the part of Frodo Baggins, the Hobbit bearing the burden of a ring of great power. Bernard Mayes portrays the wizard Gandalf with a homespun flourish.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dust jacket torn and completely damaged
By Amazon Customer on 26 September 2022
The book felt like it was used and second hand. Received the book in extremely bad condition. The dust jacket was torn and completely damaged. Not worth the price.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Finale to the Series
Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on 19 February 2021
The third book is tough to get through - be warned. It also looks bigger than it is because half of it is appendices! I found this really difficult to finish, but the ending includes several chapters on the scouring of the shire and Saruman which are not in the film but are very very important - an interesting ending that highlights the sacrifices and consequences of the war and the Hobbits decision to fight evil. Unfortunately it arrived damaged and was not well packaged but the illustrations are lovely and again I would recommend due to the lovely watercolour images.

Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on 9 December 2021
The content is perfect, Andy Serkis us a great narrator - but, leaving the discs in plain paper sleeves is a ridiculous. Years ago I bought The Hobbit/Lord Of The Rings audio CD's, each CD was in a printed cover, chapters separated by inserts, but this, CD's in a bit of paper, it's not good enough
