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

It isn't lord of the rings

I bought this book expecting it to be the classic Lord of the Rings story, but with added music, different voices and maybe sound effects. I was wrong. They have rewritten the entire story which completely loses the magic of the book. Along with this, some of the voice acting is terrible, such as the voice for Gollum. The actual audiobook is terribly mixed, with the loud parts being too loud and the soft parts being far too quiet. If you want to hear Lord of the Rings, don't buy this audiobook.
