The Tolkien Audio Collection CD-Audio
Narrated by J. R. R. Tolkien, Christopher Tolkien
For generations, J R R Tolkien's words have brought to thrilling life a world of hobbits, magic, and historic myth, woken from its foggy slumber within our minds.
Here, he tells the tales in his own voice. Of historic note, these selections from `The Hobbit' and `The Lord of the Rings' are based on a tape recording Tolkien made in 1952, which inspired him to continue his own quest to see his vision in print.
Also included is a never-published poem, "The Mirror of Galadriel," originally intended for inclusion in the trilogy, yet edited out. And, finally, Tolkien's son, Christopher, reads slections from his father's `The Silmarillion', the epic foundation upon which rests the whole of his work.
