The Lord of the Rings Audio Drama Better Than The Movie
WARNING: It’s easy to get addicted! It might mess up your schedule.
Not sure how long this will stay up at YouTube, due to copyright. But for those who thought The Lord of the Rings movie was boring (like I did), you may change your mind about The Lord of the Rings after hearing this excellent audio drama. This is the unabridged version of The Lord of the Rings as an audio book. The book is definitely better than the movie! As a writer, I can state that this may be the best novel I’ve ever read or heard. There are few novels that I admire, but this is one of them. The voice actor (Phil Dragash) who narrates (he does ALL the voices) should win an Oscar for best audio drama (I’d make up a category just for him). Other favorites are The Thornbirds (Colleen McCullough), Exodus (Leon Uris), Wuthering Heights (Emily Bronte), David Copperfield (Charles Dickens).
Update in 2021: The videos are no longer at YouTube. But the audio files can be obtained below.
