About this deal

His popularity for his Gollum performance in the Jackson trilogy doesn’t mean he is well-suited to reading the book - and this audiobook utterly proves that. He has a great understanding and I think love for the Tolkien stories that comes through in this magnificent performance! Scholars have remarked that unlike the rest of The Lord of the Rings (which has an elaborately interlaced structure), all of it is told as a single thread with Frodo as the protagonist, with the exception of the two long flashback chapters, "The Shadow of the Past" and "The Council of Elrond". Tolkien warned them that he wrote quite slowly, and responded with several stories he had already developed. Describe meals in detail; have the characters sing songs, included in the text; let the hobbits "chatter on" and play exuberantly.

In the third and final volume of the great tales, Tolkien sets his sights on Gondolin, a secret elven utopia betrayed and destroyed during the First Age.

IX - The Great River - they notice Gollum following them down the river on a log; Orc archers attack the boats; a Nazgûl on its steed is seen flying above the Fellowship's boats, and is shot down by Legolas, who fires an arrow at the rider's flying beast; passing the Argonath, they reach the Falls of Rauros, where they must choose between traveling on the east or west bank of the river to pass the falls. I can only think that he chose to do this audiobook just so he could do his Gollum performance again - a vanity project. X · The Breaking of the Fellowship — They arrive at the lawn of Parth Galen; they still face the choice of whether to go east or west; Boromir tries to take the Ring from Frodo, who puts it on to escape him; Other members of the company split up trying to find Frodo.Sam finds Frodo by the river and they cross it, thereby breaking up the Fellowship and continuing to Mount Doom on their own. The saga continues in The Two Towers, which sees the members of the Fellowship scattered to the winds. Frodo decides to leave the next day through the Old Forest, as it is an unexpected direction, rather than travelling on the roads. It tells the backstory of Sméagol and his friend Déagol, and how they came upon the Ring after Sauron was temporarily defeated. Stitched into one comprehensive volume by editor Brian Sibley, along with new illustrations by frequent Tolkien flyer Alan Lee, this book will be an invaluable resource for fans eager to dig deep on Rings of Power.

Knowing the Black Riders will attempt to seize the Ring, Strider guides the group toward the Elvish sanctuary of Rivendell. Ebooks fulfilled through Glose cannot be printed, downloaded as PDF, or read in other digital readers (like Kindle or Nook).When Bilbo Baggins suddenly disappears from his 111th birthday party, his beloved ring falls into the hands of his young heir, Frodo Baggins. The Fall of Gondolin isn’t required reading, but for Tolkien fans who particularly love his elvish lore, it’s a slam dunk. The title refers to Frodo about to tell Merry and Pippin about his quest, who he had previously believed not to know about it, and they tell him that they had known much of it all along.

The idea for the first chapter ("A Long-Expected Party") arrived fully formed, although the reasons behind Bilbo's disappearance, the significance of the Ring, and the title The Lord of the Rings did not come until the spring of 1938.He would then naturally run into the complications that inevitably arise when different story-elements collide. The Tolkien machine keeps on trucking with this new volume of Second Age tales, due out in November. When the Fellowship leaves, she gives them boats to continue their journey down the river Anduin as well as more powerful gifts. T 13] However, a month later he wrote a note published at the end of The Fellowship of the Ring and later drew a cover illustration, both of which identified the pair as Minas Morgul and Orthanc.
