My Review

As a listener, I was thrilled to discover the audiobook-free version of The Adventures of Tom Bombadil, written by the talented J.R.R. Tolkien. Being a fan of the Professor’s works, I knew I was in for a treat with this collection of poetry. The audiobook, narrated by Sir Derek Jacobi, piqued my interest even more, as I had previously enjoyed his renditions of other Tolkien works.

However, I must admit that I had some reservations about Sir Derek’s interpretation of the poems. Tolkien’s writing is meant to be experienced through the spoken word, as the sound of his language is just as important as the content itself. Unfortunately, Jacobi’s eccentric reading of the challenging rhythms in some of the poems obscured their technical brilliance. While it wasn’t terrible, I couldn’t help but feel slightly let down by this aspect of the performance.

Nevertheless, I appreciate that opinions on this matter can be entirely subjective. Some listeners may find Jacobi’s reading style to be engaging and enjoyable, and I respect their viewpoint. The fact that I am still willing to give the performance three stars speaks to the overall quality of the audiobook.

Despite my reservations, I would definitely listen to The Adventures of Tom Bombadil again. Being not particularly fond of poetry, I was pleasantly surprised by Tolkien’s masterful storytelling, and Jacobi’s brilliant narration added an extra layer of enjoyment. His smooth and captivating delivery ensured that I never found myself getting bored or disengaged, even during the shorter poems. In fact, I believe that Jacobi’s performance is one of the highlights of this audiobook.

Given the brevity of the poems and the sheer joy I experienced while listening, I could easily imagine devouring this audiobook in one sitting. The short length of each poem allowed for a delightful rhythm to the reading, making it a truly immersive and enjoyable experience. This audiobook has certainly kindled a newfound appreciation for poetry within me, and I would highly recommend it to both fans of Tolkien and newcomers alike.
