Andy Serkis to read The Lord of the Rings Audiobook

by Jul 7, 2021Books

To accompany his reading of The Hobbit, Andy Serkis and Harper Collins UK will be releasing a brand new complete audiobook of The Lord of the Rings in September of this year.

There is a current Lord of the Rings audiobook narrated by Rob Inglis (published in 1965), it seems high time for a new narrative read of Tolkien’s masterpiece. The audio quality of Inglis’s reading leaves a lot to be desired when compared to the quality of audiobook recordings in the past decade.

There’s no question Serkis will bring Gollum to life in this new reading, a bigger question will be how does he handle all the songs Tolkien wrote into LOTR.  The songs, I think, was the strong poing of Inglis’s reading.

Looking forward to listening in September.

    This is really unnecessary… There are already great unabridged audiobooks of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings out there by Robert Inglis… He does a wonderful job realizing the characters and bringing the situations to life with song and the languages… I like Andy Serkis, but this just seems like a cash-grab to me…
