George Corley (gacorley) | 62 comments It seems he did a few recordings like this. I've often listened to his reading of Namarie: https://soundcloud.com/elrond/jrr-tol...

Mohrravvian | 96 comments There is also a CD of him reading parts of the book, including the entire Riddles in the Dark chapter. His Gollum voice is perfect (as you would expect since it's his creation) and it's really great hearing him act out the characters. :-)
