"so very happy that they've put this one up."
this is one of my favorite stories. so beautiful. a little known classic. Tolkien 's depiction of the Faery realm has influenced me and my work more than I can express and this narrator did a beautiful job. so happy to have this in my library.
I loved this imaginative book, full of wonderful characters. It is such a fun read.
"A lovely and hopeful story."
I really enjoyed hearing this story read aloud. I had read the story myself years ago, but this was a real treat. In fact I listened to the last 5 minutes sitting in the grocery store parking lot😉😉.
"What a pleasure"
JRRT has created such wonder in his stories. this one is a good one read masterfully.
"A delightful journey along the edges of Faery."
J.R.R. Tolkien is best known for his epic masterpiece, The Lord of the Rings, and the children's book, The Hobbit, with which it begins. But his shorter works are delightful and Smith of Wootton Major is a little gem. Don't miss it!
The narration is fine and you could find worse ways to spend an hour, but this isn't the Tolkien most of us want to read. It's a pleasant enough fairy tale.
