Very compelling to listen to, I was enthralled and actually in Middle-earth the whole book.

A classic with some annoying innovations

This is a great dramatization with great actors and amusingly old-school folio sound effects. However, it has been updated to include Frodo reflecting on the events of the story - a device used in the films that only seems to reduce the immediacy and impact of the story. Overall it's great and well worth purchasing.
