Rob Inglis expertly bridges the gap between the whimsical, childlike aspects of Tolkien’s fantasy classic and the hints of darker things to come later in THE LORD OF THE RINGS. Though content to enjoy his cozy life, cheerful hobbit Mr. Bilbo Baggins agrees to help his wizard friend Gandalf aid a group of dwarves seeking their lost treasure. As their various adventures ensue, Inglis treats listeners to a tour-de-force performance rich in colorful characterizations and several engaging singing performances. This story should be the unquestionable starting point for those venturing into Tolkien’s Middle-earth. Listeners experience a vocal performance that is in turn charming, gripping, a little scary, and always engaging. J.P.M. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/ JAN 02]
