The original American dramatization as broadcast on National Public Radio.
War rages in the west—a titanic battle of will and strategy between the great wizard Gandalf and Sauron, the Dark Lord. Meanwhile, eastward in Mordor, Frodo and Sam approach the end of their improbable quest, bearing the One Ring ever closer to the Cracks of Doom—and to a final confrontation with the very essence of evil.
While the evil might of the Dark Lord Sauron swarmed out to conquer all Middle-earth, Frodo and Sam struggled deep into Mordor, seat of Sauron’s power. The way is impossibly hard and, weighed down by the compulsion of the Ring, Frodo is weakening.
The awesome conclusion of J.R.R. Tolkien’ The Lord of the Rings, beloved by millions of readers around the world.

The Only Dramatized Version to Hear!
Years ago I purchased this audio series on tape. Nothing has come out since those days that leads me to change my opinion...that this is the best audio version of the Lord of the Rings. Years ago, when I lost my collection of tapes, I searched and searched for a replacement. Seeing that new versions had come out, I tried them and was not only disappointed in the production and choice of voices, but I was also disappointed that I spent a lot of money doing so. Then one day I stumbled upon this CD version from HighBridge Audio. I immediately bought the Fellowship and got the rest for Christmas. I got my old collection back. There is no doubt. There cannot be any doubt that this version is the best and truer to the books than anything else out there.
