I've read 'Fellowship of the Ring' in 2 or three days. Finished it today. And since I have the luxury of being able to read the omnibus I got 6 years ago, I can go straight onto the next book!

Heard the radio play today. The way they've changed things round about it is interesting. They put Gollum's going to Mordor at the beginning, which was good, 'cos it set up what had already happened. I loved the way Gollum was done, going on about his precioussss.
And then we found out almost right away what happened between Gandalf and Saruman, rather then wating until the immensly tedious yet important part with the Elrond's Council in Rivendell.

I thought it was also interesting, but of course you have to change the ordering, when the narrative is taken out as much as it is. I think they did it well

Sadly the Beeb isn't making the Wednesday play a repeat of Saturdays this time!

From what I remember the first three or four parts of the original 26 were key to understanding the rest.

Little tidbit:-

The BBC Radio series was supplied by Peter Jackson to any of his crew that admitted to not having read the book

BBC Radio version of LOTR

Hello all,

I hope I'm not repeating an old thread here, but I would be interested in hearing people's thoughts on the BBC radio 4 adaptation of LOTR (adapted by Brian Sibley in circa 1981)? It had quite an impact on me when I first heard it and having listened to it again recently I was still struck by what a sensitive and atmospheric adaptation it is.

I wouldn't worry about that too much, but since there is one I'll merge them. I don't think you will get many new comments since it is a while since it was on.

Re: BBC Radio version of LOTR

I listened to it aged about eight, my aunt taped it for me, and I remember being deliciously terrified by the ringwraith's breathing, and the thrum of the 'one ring to rule them all' chant in the background. SO very much better than the movie (sorry, I'm a heathen), as the pictures in my head put me inside the scene.

Basically, I thought it was amazing.
