Yes, I purchased it a couple of years ago in CD format. I love it. Martin Shaw's voice is perfect for reading Tolkien. I haven't got through it ( about 1/2 way)because I tend to listen to parts of it over and over until I know it well. I read the book but never really studied it. I am a auditory learner so the CD set works quite well for me. I plan to take it with me on my long journey to China. Perhaps, I will get through the rest of it.
