Any additional comments?

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

this story firmly falls in to the bizarro category of writing, goofy, childish, surreal and sometimes snort out loud funny, sometimes the narrative is abit hard to follow but ultimately it is a enjoyable easy listen, joe hempels narration adds alot to this book i believe, his tone and inflections help sculpt the internal monologue of the protagonist nicely and he portrays the character well.

i wouldn't normally listen to book such as this but i'm glad i gave it a chance and can honestly say i enjoyed it.

the journey begins

What made the experience of listening to The Fellowship of the Ring the most enjoyable?

the sheer vast spectrum of the world and characters make it a true epic

What other book might you compare The Fellowship of the Ring to, and why?

it has alot in common with other works like narnia and game of thrones, but none can really match it in scope

Have you listened to any of Rob Inglis’s other performances? How does this one compare?

his performance through out Tolkiens work is outstanding

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

if i had the stamina i would! but the listen time clocks in very high!

the measuring post for all pirate adventures

Would you consider the audio edition of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer to be better than the print version?

nick offermans performance adds a new depth and tone to the book that lets you relax into it and lets it surround you rather than just reading it

Who was your favorite character and why?

tom of course, theres no adventures with out him

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

through out the tale you feel a strong bond to tom and only wish the best for him
