The Fellowship of the Ring: Book One in the Lord of the Rings Trilogy

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: J.R.R. Tolkien

Narrated By: Rob Inglis

Publisher: Recorded Books

Date: October 2012

Duration: 19 hours 11 minutes

Summary:

Inspired by The Hobbit, and begun in 1937, The Lord of the Rings is a trilogy that Tolkien created to provide "the necessary background of history for Elvish tongues." From these academic aspirations was born one of the most popular and imaginative works in English literature. The Fellowship of the Ring, the first volume in the trilogy, tells of the fateful power of the One Ring. It begins a magnificent tale of adventure that will plunge the members of the Fellowship of the Ring into a perilous quest and set the stage for the ultimate clash between powers of good and evil.
In this splendid, unabridged audio production of Tolkien's great work, all the inhabitants of a magical universe-hobbits, elves, and wizards-step colorfully forth from the pages. Rob Inglis' narration has been praised as a masterpiece of audio.

    Narrator does an amazing job!! (Though I could do without the singing) This series, is the series I listen to most often while falling asleep... he has a calming voice until he sings lol!! But all in all very well done! One of my fave series’ on movie form and audiobook form! (Could never get into the books myself but having them read to me is PERFECT)

    Always a fascinating read, the narrator has a great talking and singing voice! Truly a prominent tale in the history of fantasy.

    This was pretty awful. I realize it is a classic piece of literature. However, after seeing the movie, this is written in a way that's more like Wizard of Oz. All of the characters are watered down and childlike. It's more like a complicated children's book then than epic sweeping fantasy. The narrator singing was probably the worst part.

    I have to agree with the other posters. There are too many songs and they're too long. Happily, they can be skipped. Also, it feels as if the author is reading to his kid.

  • John R

    over hyped too many songs. I'm not impressed by the story structure or premise.

  • Theresa Shallenberger

    Excellent voice narrative and character representations. Enjoy listening while driving and leisurely time at home.

    So amazing for driving or working out, the narrator does a fantastic job and who doesn't love Tolkien!
