Andy Serkis is the voice of Gollum/Sméagol in the movie. He voiced over 100 different characters for this audiobook.
It's locked into the Chirp app or website. They don't offer direct downloads of the files.
Still a good audiobook IMO, but the ownership story isn't as good as through something like libro.fm.

While I absolutely love this version…it isn't the same thing being advertised. I'm at the point of loving this so much that I'm excited to hear different readings of it. This is my current favorite version.

Entertaining read (or listen) and much better than the Peter Jackson ridiculous 543 hour movie that added 2,392 new story lines. Haven't heard this particular reading but worth a try at the price.

Mine was $1.99… not 100% on version but seems cool and I'm *really* picky on voice actors.

*Normally, I prefer Kindles do TTS vs voice acting… old men doing weird voices (ex: high pitched girls) really destroys the immersion…

From what I've heard Andy S. Neither over nor under "acts" this… That is a crazy good compliment for me… 😅🤷🏻 ♂️🤦🏻 ♂️🤦🏻 ♂️🤦🏻 ♂️

It's locked into the Chirp app or website. They don't offer direct downloads of the files.
Still a good audiobook IMO, but the ownership story isn't as good as through something like libro.fm.

Thanks for the info! At this price I think I'll still get it but it's much easier to listen in the car when I don't have to fumble about with my phone.
