Book on Tape, _Lord of the Rings_

Jae and I are listening to the _Lord of the Rings_ books on tape. I should have looked up the particular edition before I posted. I'll post it later. It is really well done. The story, of course, is incredible. I find a couple of interesting things about the book on tape as opposed to reading the book, and as opposed to the recent movies.

This is an unabridged version, I should mention. First thing that was interesting was pronunciation. Hearing the names and non-english languages pronounced is cool. The second thing was the songs. The narrator sings the songs. Very cool. For those reasons, even if you've read the books and seen the movies, I recommend trying these books on tape.
