5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, Just wish there was more 1 Feb 2009
By Kyle G. Blodgett - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This recording is excellent and it is fun to hear Tolkien's pronunciation but I just wish there was more, it is only an hour of readings.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Voice of a Genius 15 Oct 2012
By Anneliese M. Devyldere - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My first exposure to Tolkien was my mother reading The Hobbit to me and my sister. I have since read everything I could get my hands on of his, so when I found this cd on amazon I was psyched! I threw the disc into my laptop as soon as it arrived and fired up iTunes, and I was not disappointed. It brings a real connection to the man to hear his voice. I specialize in studying diction and paralanguage, and it really adds another layer for the true geek to hear how Tolkien adds emphasis, de-emphasis, pauses, and phrasing to the beloved tales. It really enhanced the experience to me and increased my understanding of how he constructed his worlds, languages, and characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tolkien Reading - Must have 24 Jan 2012
By Cmdinla - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Years ago, I had the original LPs of the readings (and still have them), so I was very surprised that when browsing Amazon, I found this. It was an instant buy.

Highly recommend if you are a fan. To here JRR speaking the poems and passages from his books is amazing. He has this rich deep voice.

Buy this now!

I think I've heard most of these all before, but it's great to listen to the acutal author reading his books.

For any Tolkien fan out there this is a must have. Nothing beats hearing the author performing his own work.
