EXCELLENT - The Best Adaption you'll find anywhere,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Lord of the Rings : A Full Cast Dramatisation (BBC Radio Collection) (Audio Cassette)
I originally heard this about five years ago, and listening to it again, it just gets better. The price may seem steep, but it is worth it. I originally heard this after I had read the books, and of course there are things you feel shouldn't have been left out, but putting what they did in 13 hours you will not be disappointed. All the actors are great, but I must single out Ian Holm for his performance, the emotions he can convey in his voice and the way he delivers his lines are excellent.
I just hope the upcoming movies can equal this, but I somehow doubt it.
