[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.

Third part of a gripping series, JRR Tolkien knows how to grab a readers attention. Follow Frodo and his friends to the end of the Trilogy.

What can I say? If you've come this far with Frodo & his buddies, you can't stop now! this is the most amazingly well written story! I have read all of these books at least ten times since I first picked up The Hobbit in the fourth grade. A MUST READ!
