THE LORD OF THE RINGS
Complete Set of 13 tapes
BBC - My lot D7 - not the box
Ron's reverse auction...
I have given this item a 'Buy-it-Now' price, but if it does not sell within a
few days I will reduce it (and probably again until it sells). So if you are
interested but the price is too high, keep watching: it may come down
to your level (if somebody else doesn't grab it first!).
Here Audio Book with full cast, music & sound effects - BBC.
With Ian Holm and full star cast.
I have great affection for this glorious set of tapes. I have exactly the same set and have listened through the whole saga many times over many years. The whole story was originally broadcast on BBC radio in about 26 weekly episodes - I used to sit there, glued! Then I got the abridged set of tapes (like this one) and enjoyed them again and again - I still have them and they're not for sale.
Now it's your turn. Have you read the book? Did you see the 3 films? (The films take a few different paths and miss bits out, but are pretty faithful to Tolkien).
The great thing about these tapes is that you can use your own imagination, which is much better, and the fact that they are about 13 hours long! And also, these tapes (and the book) are not exactly as the film, so you never quite know what is going to happen.
The story - (is there anyone who doesn't know it?); Young people perhaps. Well, if you like a bit of magic, adventure, impossible odds, evil badies, heroic goodies, the little folk winning through, monsters, caves, mountains, desolate regions, disasters, self-sacrifice, a twisting - unpredictable plot, frantic action, fantastic battles, wonderful friendships to the death, and ultimately "The Return of the King" - then YOU'RE GOING TO LOVE THIS.
The battle of Helm's Deep in a thunderstorm - Wow!
The twist about the wizard - (I'll say no more!)
The mysterious stranger, and who he really is
The flight to the ford, running from the 'Black Rider'
The fight on Weathertop hill - "Frodo, Don't put on that Ring! "
The bid to escape - one elf & one casualty against 9 dark wraiths
The fight between winged monster & wizard on the underground bridge
The passage through the haunted mountain & the twisting plot
The dark lake (and what's living in it)
The heroic pursuit of the captives, and another surprise!
Wonderful pitched battles with swords, bows, spears, clubs....
Massive battles with impossible odds
Treachery on the long staircase
Horror in the dark tunnel
One small warier, one glowing sword, the Ring, & too many foes
The tense last minute bid for victory & the 'free world' on a knife edge!
TOTALLY ENGROSSING - YOU WON'T WANT TO STOP!
13 cassettes in excellent condition. Cases are good - just one crack.
The box is not for sale - it is very tatty and takes the postage over the 1Kg mark - so, just for show.
Fast delivery - comes out by hovercraft!
Bulky & heavy - £2.80 exact postage - if this set sells for much
over £10 I will pay for signed-for delivery.
Sorry – no deals on postage and packing, and no local collection unless specified.
I only post within the UK
