In my last Sunday Sum-Up, I mentioned that Andy Serkis is narrating a new The Lord of the Rings audiobook. Because I’d only heard mentionings of it over the summer, I thought that it would be released sometime next year.
Readers, I was wrong. Wonderfully wrong.
The new The Lord of the Rings audiobook comes out in North America on September 16, and will be available on just about every audiobook platform, so you don’t have to have an Audible account to listen. If you have access to OverDrive, Libby, or Hoopla via your local library, see if they’ll have it available for you to listen to for free. Otherwise, you can buy all three books via GooglePlay, Audible, iTunes, Audiobook.com, or wherever else you get your audiobooks.
It will be available via HarperCollins in the rest of the world.
