‘Masterpiece? Oh yes, I’ve no doubt about that.’
‘Among the greatest works of imaginative fiction of the 20th century.’
Sauron, the Dark Lord, has gathered to him the Rings of Power – the means by which he will be able to rule the world. All he lacks in his plan for dominion is the Ruling Ring, which has fallen into the hands of the hobbit Bilbo Bagggins.
In a sleepy village in the Shire, young Frodo Baggins finds himself faced with an immense task, as the Ring is entrusted to his care. He must leave his home and make a perilous journey across the realms of Middle-earth to the Cracks of Doom, deep inside the territories of the Dark Lord. There he must destroy the Ring forever and foil the Dark Lord in his evil purpose.
This unabridged audio adaptation of all three volumes of The Lord of the Rings is magically brought to life by Rob Inglis.
