5731Thanks for the Information
- Apr 3, 2002Hello again,
Thank you very much, Janet for the information about the Bantam audio
version of the Silmarillion. I will check it out immediately!
I know what you mean about a poor narration spoiling a book. The National
Library Service does an excellent job in choosing narrators to fit the books
they read, but, in this case, I just think they wanted to get the book out
as quickly as possible. The narrator was good, and I've read other books
narrated by him; he just sounded uninterested. Well, I mean, unless you're a
fervent enthusiast (as I am) why would you be interested? It isn't light
reading you know. The NLS did an excellent version of The Book of Lost Tales
and Unfinished Tales, but they haven't put out any of Christopher Tolkien's
subsequent publications; that's why I asked my question about The History of
Middle-earth. Thank you very much again.
