[Abridged] (Audio CD)
Thirteen CDs, 13 hour
Ripped from new Retail CD's to MP3 with the Lame encoder at 128 kpbs 44 kHz
Presented in the original format (same number of tracks)
This stunning dramatized BBC production of Tolkien's classic is presented in thirteen hours on thirteen compact discs. Starring Iam Holm and featuring a cast of 25 performers, specially compised music and sound effects.
Ian Holm (whom we know as Bilbo from the LotR films) is the voice of Frodo Baggins, a hobbit who inherited a mysterious ring from his elder cousin Bilbo. Discovering that the ring is The One Ring, an object of terrible evil, Frodo eventually sets out to destroy it, hoping to save Middle Earth, with the help his servant Sam (William Nighy), the wise wizard Gandalf (Michael Hordern), and an assortment of free men, hobbits, an elf and a dwarf.
It's all very dramatic, with a distinctly Shakespearean appeal, complete with proud, tragic heroes, breast-beating calls to arms, and more than a fair share of comic relief. The actors - to the last person - deliver wonderful performances of the many characters that live in Middle Earth. Most outstanding is Peter Woodthorpe as the voice of Gollum, a creature who found The Ring centuries ago and was irreversibly twisted (both physically and mentally) by its hypnotic evil. He masterfully captures Gollum's extreme bipolar nature, transforming from groveling sycophant to raving maniac - sometimes in the course of a single sentence!
Most of the sound effects are fitting enhancements to the action, and there are several occasions when our heroes burst into song (something the books emphasized considerably, but the movie largely omitted).
All in all, the BBC's audio dramatization of LotR is eminently enjoyable. It's an indispensable part of any hardcore Tolkien fan's collection.
