In a quiet village in the Shire, young Frodo Baggins is about to receive a gift that will change his life forever. Thought lost centuries ago, it is the One Ring, an object of terrifying power once used by the Dark Lord to enslave Middle-earth. Now darkness is rising, and Frodo must travel deep into the Dark Lord's realm, to the one place the Ring can be destroyed: Mount Doom. The journey will test Frodo's courage, his friendships and his heart. Because the Ring corrupts all who bear it--can Frodo destroy it, or will it destroy him? This brand-new unabridged recording is narrated by the acclaimed actor, director and author, Andy Serkis.
