Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: J.R.R. Tolkien

Narrated By: Rob Inglis

Publisher: Recorded Books

Date: October 2012

Duration: 18 hours 22 minutes


The Return of the King is the towering climax to J.R.R. Tolkien's trilogy that tells the saga of the hobbits of Middle-earth and the great War of the Rings. In this concluding volume, Frodo and Sam make a terrible journey to the heart of the Land of the Shadow in a final reckoning with the power of Sauron. In addition to narrating the prose passages, Rob Inglis sings the trilogy's songs and poems a capella, using melodies composed by Inglis and Claudia Howard, the Recorded Books studio director. The 11th tape in this recording contains Tolkien's preface to the trilogy, including a prior history of the ring, and shire habitat, history, and folkways.
