Classic great wonderful. Who can say anything bad about the hobbit! It is a great book
I marked it finished even though I didn't get past the second chapter. Can't stand the narrators interpretations of dwarves or his singing of songs.
The narrators terrible singing.
Not his best performance. At least, I hope he does better with other books!
I had never read the book before now and was totally surprised by the story. It is nothing like the movie, which I have seen many times. I won't say much about it so as to not spoil it for anyone but I was expecting perhaps several scenes left out and different character mannerisms. What completely surprised me was basically a whole different take on the story. The book was great and so was the movie.
Me personally I liked the movie version slightly better, more action.
I loved the different voices for all the characters- some of which required very specific accents and voices where Ingles absolutely and incredibly excelled. Amazing story as well, and I recommend it for anyone interested in an adventurous novel that is also a timeless classic.
