Continuing the story begun in The Hobbit, this is the first part of Tolkien’s epic masterpiece, The Lord of the Rings, available as a complete and unabridged audiobook. Sauron, the Dark Lord, has gathered to him all the Rings of Power - the means by which he intends to rule Middle-earth. All he lacks in his plans for dominion is the One Ring - the ring that rules them all - which has fallen into the hands of the hobbit, Bilbo Baggins.

A wonderful atmospheric recording of the first part of The Lord of the Rings. Rob Inglis' narration brings the characters to life. I think Tolkien would be pleased with this version of his book.

Whisked from his comfortable hobbit-hole by Gandalf the wizard and a band of dwarves, Bilbo Baggins finds himself caught up in a plot to raid the treasure hoard of Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous dragon.

I love this book. I first heard it about twenty years ago on cassette and I have always wanted to have my own copy. Rob Inglis brings something special to the narrating, including the singing. I know I shall enjoy listening to it again and again. It is definitely the best audio version of The Hobbit. A classic.

For centuries, the legend of Robin Hood and his band of thieves has captivated the imagination. Now the familiar tale takes on new life, fresh meaning, and an unexpected setting. Hunted like an animal by Norman invaders, Bran ap Brychan, heir to the throne of Elfael, has abandoned his father's kingdom and fled to the greenwood. There, in the primeval forest of the Welsh borders, danger surrounds him, for this woodland is a living, breathing entity with mysterious powers and secrets.

I am a big Stephen Lawhead fan and have collected most of his works. This is my first audio version of one of his books. I found the storyline and characters enjoyable and liked the setting of the Robin Hood story. My only criticism is the story being read by an American who cannot pronounce the Welsh names and places. I found this extremely irritating and it constantly distracted me.
