Good reading but...
The sound effects though very good are often too loud and the characters sound too much like the Peter Jackson movies. I'm not a big fan of the Jackson of the Rings movies, too much action, not enough story so I really don't want the audiobook characters to remind me of them. So a star off for sound effects volume and a star off for similarity.

Reading the reviews, I was skeptical. There are MANY versions of this book, but I have to admit this is pretty damn good! 🧙🏼♀️

Well that was fun!
I loved this. I listened to this while I read the physical book. so it was kinda like reading in 3D.

Best By Far!
I would have really good money for this. Unfortunately it’s not Available on AUDIBLE, thank G-D That it is Available here. Excellent rendition.

I have tried all of the various readings and this one surpasses them all. Read with skill and passion, never boring.

Best, Fantastic , Wonderful... , what more can be said?
This was obviously done as a labor of love. And it is very loved! I've heard the other recordings done of these books and nothing touches them! Ignore those one or two reviews that say something unkind , these recordings are the best done, even with the few mistakes in them!

I agree with dwarfguy, backround sounds are deffinetelly too loud and noisy. It takes off huge part (and one star) off listening enjoyment.
I tend to listen Rob Inglish version tad more pleasure, tho' Inglish pronounce some names weirdly funny.

Excellent, but some flaws
I find this to be the best lotr audiobook by far. Complete, many different voices, uses the music from the movies, etc. That said, it is sometimes hard to understand some diologue over the sound effects and music, but maybe that's just me.
This man is an absolute genius! In the end of The Departure of Boromir, after Aragorn shouts, "Forth the Three Hunters!", Phil just blasted the main theme onward until the end of the recording, the song really added depth and weight to the end of the chapter :)

Excellent adaptation of the Lord of the Rings. Uses music from the movies and sound effects in the background. This is an unabridged adaptation.
