Derek Jacobi's Tolkien Audiobooks reviewed


There are three audiobooks of Tolkien's short works performed by the English actor Derek Jacobi: Farmer Giles of Ham, Leaf by Niggle and Smith of Wooton Major.

There is not much to be said about them except that I suppose it is possible that better performances than these might conceivably be done at some point in the future, so I will award the discs 9/ 10...

But, really, Jacobi's readings of Tolkien are as near perfection as makes no difference.
