The Silmarillion Gift Set
2.  The Silmarillion Gift Set by J. R. R. Tolkien

The Children of Húrin

Beowulf (Poetry)
5.  Beowulf (Poetry) by Crawford Logan

Edda: Myths from Medieval Iceland
8.  Edda: Myths from Medieval Iceland by Anonymous
The list author says:
  "Not an audiobk. Earliest norse poems sung to music of an authentic style, as far as this is possible. They should use this in film version of The Hobbit. Expect they'll go for Annie Lennox though."

13.  Sir Gawain and the Green Knight: with Pearl and Sir Orfeo by Terry Jones
The list author says:
  "Sir Gawain & Sir Orfeo are good stories though they don't have the grandeur of my favourites. Quaint, quirky, mysterious. Better than Chaucer."

Sir Gawain and the Green Knight

16.  A Wizard of Earthsea: The Earthsea Cycle, Book 1 (Unabridged) by Ursula K. Le Guin
The list author says:
  "A Celtic accent (perhaps Scottish) would be perfect for Earthsea in my opinion, but even so this Rob Inglis reading is a great treat. Downloaded this one from Audible."

Morte d'Arthur: Death of Arthur (Great Epics)
17.  Morte d'Arthur: Death of Arthur (Great Epics) by Sir Thomas Malory
The list author says:
  "Le Morte d'Arthur benefits from being abridged (perhaps not this much though). Anyway, the silly repetitive stuff is cut out, leaving a dignified legend. Philip Madoc is perfect."
£13.99   Used & New from: £4.49

Le Morte D'Arthur
18.  Le Morte D'Arthur by Sir Thomas Malory
The list author says:
  "A longer version (9 hours) read with great expression by Derek Jacobi."

The Once and Future King
19.  The Once and Future King by T. H. White
The list author says:
  "T.H.White was, in part, rewriting Malory. Loved the book when a teenager, now I prefer the comic to the tragic parts. Beautifully read by Neville Jason."
