批評家のレビュー

"An extraordinary book. It deals with a stupendous theme. It leads us through a succession of strange and astonishing episodes, some of them magnificent." (The Observer)

"Among the greatest works of imaginative fiction of the twentieth century." (Sunday Telegraph)

あらすじ・解説

The complete, unabridged audiobook of The Return of the King

Concluding the story begun in The Hobbit, this is the final part of Tolkien’s epic masterpiece, The Lord of the Rings, available as a complete and unabridged audiobook. 

The armies of the Dark Lord Sauron are massing as his evil shadow spreads ever wider. Men, Dwarves, Elves and Ents unite forces to do battle against the Dark. Meanwhile, Frodo and Sam struggle further into Mordor in their heroic quest to destroy the One Ring.

Includes Appendix A.

Inglis sounds like Tolkien!

As far as I know, this is the only unabridged reading of LOTR, so if you want unabridged this is the one to go for! (if you want abridged, try the BBC full cast dramatisation).

Rob Inglis has a very traditional english voice - similar to Tolkien's own. He reads in a very measured way. Not only does he read the entire book (apart from the appendices), he also sings all of the songs. I think that he suits the reading, but I find sometimes he doesn't differentiate the characters enough, and the pace is not fast. I also find that he makes the hobbits a bit too "yokel" (rural english accent) for me.

That said, I enjoyed this audiobook and would recommend it. The only thing to be aware of is that Audible have divided it into six separate audiobooks, so to listen to the whole of LOTR, you are going to have to buy them all.

Finally!

Would you listen to The Return of the King again? Why?

Absolutely. The narrator was excellent and the story is timeless.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Return of the King?

(No spoilers, I promise) Toward the end there is a whole section that was not in the films at all. This was my first time reading and it made the story new again for a film fan.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Of course, but I don't want to give away anything.

Any additional comments?

As a long-time Lord of the Rings movie fan, I finally tuckered down and listened to the books. They are fantastic. They are filled with new (to me) characters and additional stories that you wouldn't know about if you'd only watched the films. Definitely get this series on your "to read" list.

The Perfect End

This is one of the rare occasions where a writer, not only develops the thematic ending to the main characters, and even secondary characters, but really closes the thematic argument of the whole saga and all other subplots very gracefully.

New Audiobook Recording needed

This masterpiece of a book is not done justice to by this dates reading that has been the only one available for years and years. It is
Time for a new unabridged interpretation of this outstanding trilogy. It would be great if this could include singing that sounded as if sung by elves. There is so much better technology available now that a new audio version is sorely needed.

About the narrator

We all know that the book itself is really good. As for the narrator’s performance, it wouldn’t be better. He gives every character a distinct voice and his pronunciations are great. He even sang the songs in the book, and he did pretty well. I sometimes listen to the songs he sang. In brief, Rob Inglis is the best.

I look forward to listening to it again next year

It's a fantastic book. I have read it before, but this time it was the best. I thoroughly enjoyed Mr Inglis's recitation, which offered wonderful variations in voice without being annoying, as is often the case with this art.

Read the book, saw the movie, loved the audiobook

I'll skip the review of the story, we all know it, its a 'Genius at work' moment. However, seeing the trilogy in the cinema, in advance of listening to this epic tale, I think improved the listen. Peter Jackson's characters almost fitted my imagining perfectly and this made listening, aided by a fantastic narration, a breeze. Oh, that there were more of it's kind out there.

One 'Book' To Rule Them All!

WOW!! Absolutely superb! A truly amazing book, from start to finish. The Lord of the Rings movies, really don't even scratch the surface. This is, without doubt, a masterpiece. Excellently written, and narrated with style.

If you've watched the movies, and think you know what Lord of the Rings is about, think again. Get this book, and you will understand what I mean.

Absolutely brilliant!

Great book but missing extra chapters

Generally well read but disappointed that the last few CDs after the end of the main book are not included. Also narrator sometimes slips into the wrong accent.

Overall though a very good listen.

lotr

Would you listen to The Return of the King again? Why?

yes

Who was your favorite character and why?

sam, the most down to earth and realistic character

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Rob Inglis?

dont know but someone who can deliver the important speeches and moments (eg when in mordor and sam says 'i cant carry the ring but i can carry you' - rob inglis made this scene very weak, as well as the whole chapter at mount doom) with the conviction they deserve and need unlike rob inglis

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

sam saving frodo in mordor

The Lord of the Rings - The return of the King

Absolutely stunning reading by Rob Inglis.

I first read LotR over 50 years ago and my personal internal characterisations were entirely matched by Rob's interpretations of each of the characters so excellently drawn by Prof Tolkien.
Only regret is not buying this amazing rendition years ago

Rob Inglis’ narration is so good. He’s consistent across all three titles. Recommend you get this book!
