I'm not sure what the negative reviewers thought was meant by "dramatization" in the description of this series; nowhere is it described as an "unabridged reading" of the book.
It's a bad idea to buy things on iTunes after drinking too much mead at your local renaissance faire. Don't take it out on the message board.
(These are good, solid dramatizations with real British accents. Buy them without regret. And yes, please add the unabridged reading.)
Like lord of the rings? Then get!
This is a gem, dramatized yet faithful to the original with wonderful voice actors like no other auidiobook. Great on the go, before bed, or anywhere!
This is definately one of the better adiobooks I've listened too! Quite soothing, amazing voice actors and in my oppinion it was much more faithful to the book than the movies were!
