A Great Listen

I have just listened to this again after a gap of 10 years and it is even better than I remember. I thought after having seen the films that it would have lost some of the magic. But, this is not the case. One of the great things about audio is that you still get to fill in the gaps using your own imagination and this BBC Radio 4 version gives you plenty of opportunity to that. The new start to each of the books is a good addition, as is the linking together of the individual episodes. Sam is still my favourite character, with Gandalf a close second. If you have not listened to this yet then don't wait too long before you do!

A blast from the past

Listening to the lord of the rings brought back wonderful memories for me because i bought the Lord of the Rings Trilogy on cd. Unfortunately i had those stolen and missed hours of dramatised enjoyment. Thank God for Audible and downloading the trilogy. I can now sit and listen to the lord of the rings for hours on end again. WONDERFUL ENTERTAINMENT.
