Description-
  • The original American full dramatization as broadcast on National Public Radio.

    War rages in the west-a titanic battle of will and strategy between the great wizard Gandalf and Sauron, the dark lord. Meanwhile, eastward in Mordor, Frodo and Sam approach the end of their improbable quest, bearing the One Ring ever closer to the Cracks of Doom-and to a final confrontation with the very essence of evil.

About the Author-
  • J. R. R. Tolkien was a writer and university professor. In addition to The Hobbit, and The Lord of the Rings, Tolkien's published fiction includes The Silmarillion, and other posthumously published books, which taken together is a connected body of work about an imagined—and much-beloved by readers—world called Middle-earth.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine [Editor's Note: The following is a combined review with THE TWO TOWERS.]--There is something incongruous about American voices in ancient Britain (or to be precise, Middle-earth). Nonetheless, these American productions of the Tolkien classics--originally broadcast on NPR Playhouse--are well worth hearing. While not as elaborate as the BBC production (which featured Ian Holm), this adaptation is more accessible to a wider audience. Gail Chugg, who also plays the character of Gollum, narrates the story with an easy storyteller's style. James Arrington reads the part of Frodo Baggins, the Hobbit bearing the burden of a ring of great power. Bernard Mayes portrays the wizard Gandalf with a homespun flourish. S.E.S.
