5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic fiction, brilliant narration, 29 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Batman essential for those who missed out on the comics, 29 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For Batman fans ( 10 plus years) this is classic Batman and the basis for the Christopher Nolan Dark Knight trilogy. My son (11yrs) absolutely loved it and is racing through the next installment, never seen him so keen to read!

Meets the exacting standards of young gamer! I am impressed with the clarity of the graphics on games eg Skyrim and the Batman Arkham series. Experienced no lagging at all.

3.0 out of 5 stars Reading skills, 2 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My 9yr old son really enjoyed the story but said the reader was, "too squeaky and American and not like teenagers voices at all except for the guy with horns. He wasn't very good at doing different people."
