Fantastic fiction, brilliant narration, 29 Dec 2013
At last a boxset! Unabridged LOTR trilogy with bonus The Hobbit! My son loved The Hobbit narrated by Rob Inglis and was thrilled to receive this set also narrated by him. Having heard the BBC radio adaptation (also very good but abridged) he asked for an unabridged version, he's 11 yrs old.
Rob Inglis is extremely good at characterisation and has a warm, resonant voice perfect for story telling. My son commented that he liked the way he reads,
"..clearly and not too fast so I can hear the story properly."
Also, "He makes all the characters so real."
I believe audiobooks are a great way to bring classic literature to reluctant readers and also model good reading skills.This is a superb example.
