Andy Serkis to Read New Audiobook Version of ‘The Lord of the Rings’

Andy Serkis is heading back to Middle-earth with a brand new audiobook from HarperCollins of J.R.R. Tolkien’s timeless classic The Lord of the Rings.

Andy Serkis, the voice of Gollum/Sméagol in The Lord of the Rings trilogy and the first Hobbit film, is continuing to bring life to Tolkien’s work 20 years after embarking on his journey as Gollum.

In a statement published on bookseller.com Serkis said, “Walking back into Middle-earth over 20 years after my first life-changing adventure there, and experiencing it all over again (this time for many weeks alone in a sound booth) has brought in equal measures of pure joy, sheer madness, immense pleasure and a level of psychological and physical fatigue I have never quite experienced the like of before.”

Serkis has also previously read for an audiobook version of Tolkien’s The Hobbit after creating the Hobbitathon, a live, cover-to-cover reading of the classic book to over 650,000 listeners where he raised over £300,000 for COVID-19 relief. It is currently available wherever you get your audiobooks!

The new audiobook will be available for digital download on September 16 and on CD October 14.
