The unofficial yet undisputed voice of all things Tolkien, Andy Serkis, revels in bringing the early history of High Elves, Dark Lords, and powerful jewels to life. J.R.R. Tolkien was first and foremost an academic, and his detailed and expansive fantasy universe was hugely influenced by larger-than-life Norse sagas, classic myths, and Old English chronicles. Serkis is masterful at voicing and pronouncing THE SILMARILLION'S biblical-sounding rhythms and names, such as AkallabĂȘth and Galadriel, which give Tolkien's world its underlying gravity. This volume includes a history of the "precious" 20 Rings of Power that attracted hobbits and humans alike. An entertaining listen for both serious and casual fans.
