Inspired by The Hobbit and begun in 1937, The Lord of the Rings is a trilogy that Tolkien created to provide “the necessary background of history for Elvish tongues.” From these academic aspirations was born one of the most popular and imaginative works in English literature.

The Fellowship of the Ring, the first volume in the trilogy, tells of the fateful power of the One Ring. It begins a magnificent tale of adventure that will plunge the members of the Fellowship of the Ring into a perilous quest and set the stage for the ultimate clash between powers of good and evil. In this splendid, unabridged audio production of Tolkien’s great work, all the inhabitants of a magical universe—hobbits, elves, wizards, dwarves—step colorfully forth from the pages. Rob Inglis’ narration has been praised as a masterpiece of audio.

Quotes & Awards

  • “I cannot imagine a more wonderful Christmas present…The first thing that one asks is that the adventure should be various and exciting; in this respect Mr. Tolkien’s invention is unflagging… One must feel that, however superficially unlike the world we live in its characters and events may be, it nevertheless holds up the mirror to the only nature we know: our own; in this, too, Mr. Tolkien has succeeded superbly, and what happened in the year of the Shire 1418 in the Third Age of Middle-earth is not only fascinating in AD 1954 but also a warning and an inspiration. No fiction I have read in the last five years has given me more joy than The Fellowship of the Ring.”

    " De la trilogia es el que mas me cuesta de todos por ser demasiado descriptivo y lento en general. Pero solo Moria siempre sera MORIA! "
