1.0 out of 5 stars How to ruin a good book, 22 Aug 2008
This review is from: The Fellowship of the Ring - Audio CD (Audio CD)
If you want to hear Lord of the Rings listen to the BBC radio version.This has to be the worse reading possible. Rob Inglis does some of the most terrible voices I have heard in a book reading and manages to kill some of the best written prose about.It does not improve over the rest of the series.If you want to hear it borrow it from the library but do not buy it.

The BBC Radio version is a radio play, this is an audio book. The two are very very different.

I have heard parts of this audio book, and Rob Inglis reads it very well. Anyone who thinks it's the "worse" reading possible should not be taken seriously.

..It is a terrible reading with bad inflection and flow. As it happens, Inglis had never read the book previously, was not a fan and was just in for a quick buck. Which shows in spades.

I agree with this review, Inglis is the most appalling reader of this material, ruining it in every conceivable way.

I am totally confused, is this Kindle edition a talking book, or one to be read?
I notice in the description it mentions that a mobile phone with 3G is necessary; yet the 'look inside,' depicts a written book.
Clarity anyone please.
