    " Once again, listening to Rob Inglis narrate this book is such an enjoyable experience. As in his other readings, he really brings the characters to life. I felt like each character was well represented as an individual that was easy to imagine in real life. A must read! "

    " The iconic fantasy novel... what can I said that hasn't been said before? Well, just that is not an easy reading and that I read it before seeing the movies. There are many things that I didn't catch until somebody else mentioned them to me. "

    " Awesome, if you like trudging through unnecessary, long winded prose. It's like a swamp made of words. Extremely boring, even the action is dulled by a text book like feel. "

    " I just finished Book 1 Fellowship of the Ring. I found it is very similar to the movie and the parts they did cut out were interesting to read, but may have been slow going on the big screen. It is nice to know they tried to make it as close as possible to the book. "
