THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING Lord of the Rings, Book 1

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Andy Serkis

Classics • 22.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1954

Award-winning narrator Andy Serkis (THE HOBBIT) returns to Middle-earth with a stunning performance of the first audiobook in The Lord of the Rings trilogy. This unabridged production of Tolkien's fantasy classic--including front matter on Hobbit lore and THE HOBBIT--is lengthy but never dull, thanks to Serkis's dynamic interpretation. It is an epic tale of the One Ring and the perilous journey of Frodo, the reluctant ring bearer, and his eight companions--tasked with the ring's destruction. Serkis creates an impressive assortment of fully developed characters, infusing each voice with distinct qualities--even when singing--giving the impression of a full-cast narration. Serkis is a remarkably gifted storyteller, and the result is captivating in every respect. Happily, with two installments to follow, the listening experience does not end here. S.A.A.
