Lord of the Rings - Audiobook Soundscape by Phil Dragash
In 2014, I went on a 3 weeks rock climbing trip with a friend. I don't remember exactly why, but I thought it would be a good idea to listen to a Lord of the Rings audiobook while camping and resting.
So I started to look for a good version and found Phil Dragash's version. He describes it this way:
J.R.R. Tolkien’s "The Lord of the Rings" unofficial unabridged audiobook. Not only read by me, but with music by Howard Shore (for the film trilogy), and immersive sound effects that provide the written word with a more lifelike experience.
At the time, each chapter was posted as a single video on youtube and each video had a 'mediafire.com' link in its description from which you could download the mp3. I went ahead and downloaded each mp3 to have a local copy of the complete trilogy. (we were camping in Kentucky with not-so-good wifi)
I'm really glad I did this, since we really enjoyed the books -- and finished it juuuuuust in time on the way back home -- but also I can't find the links on youtube anymore... Google will get you to the original mediafire links however.
So here it is, a copy of the complete audiobook. You can get each mp3 individually, or download a zipfile containing all the chapters for each book:
