"Among the greatest works of imaginative fiction of the twentieth century." ( Sunday Telegraph)

Eine sehr gute Lesung des Klassikers in der Originalsprache. Der Sprecher kann mit wenigen Mitteln Großes entstehen lassen. Auch in den Sprachen der Elben und Orks wird gesungen und gesprochen. Auch für jeden der das Buch, sicher die Meisten mehrmals, gelesen haben, ist es ein Genuss.

One for the ages?
In the 1970s and 80s Rob Inglis performed a one man stage version of The Lord of The Rings and The Hobbit. This is where it all began. There Inglis developed a deep understanding of the various characters in Tolkien’s work. After a while he knew how every hobbit, dwarf, wizard, and orc had to sound to be believable. The critics began to praise his stage shows and in 1990 he was asked by “Recorded Books” to produce an unabridged audio version of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit.
I listened to the audiobook. I was drawn into the audiobook. I lost myself in the audiobook.
With the first words of Inglis, Middle-earth awakens. Not that it is a spectacular voice that we as audience hear. It is this calm, matter-of-fact manner of Inglis’ narration that lures the listener into the realms of Tolkien. It is just stimulating enough to encourage the listener to use his own imagination to create his/her own images. The first time I have read the books, these images were silent – like a silent film in my head. This time, listening to Rob Inglis, they had a voice. The fact that Inglis does not use any sound effects and even sings the songs himself is one of his major strengths. The listener feels that anything additional to this voice would not enhance the experience, which speaks volumes of the quality of the reading.
Can I imagine somebody reading an unabridged version of the novel in a better way? Probably not. Rob Inglis has created an audiobook for the ages.
