It’s Andy Serkis, so of course the narration is top notch. As for the writing, Tolkien, while having some of the most poetic and gorgeous prose, tends to vacation in the details instead of holidaying in them. Oft times, sections were a bit long winded and I found myself drifting. All in all, from a book standpoint, The Hobbit is still my favorite out of the two. Onward to The Two Towers!
Andy Serkis was the perfect narrator for this story! So glad he is the one to bring me into the book of the movie series I love so much.
It’s obviously the best. Everything. All of it. Of course.
Great Narrator, loved hearing the differences between the original book and the movie
Andy Serkis is fantastic. I wish I could do all the voices he does and keep them straight.
The Andy Serkis reading was absolutely fantastic, a pure joy to listen to.
I quite enjoy all the characters being distinct in their voices, as well as listening to Andy Serkis sing the songs. Thoroughly enjoyed.
Andy Serkis is the best choice for reading these master pieces for TLOTR! The movies are awesome, the books are very good also!
