The narration was great. A good story. Now, I definitely want to read the Lord of The Rongelap trilogy. I just thought that there were a few too many songs. If I had been reading the book I would've skipped past them.
The Hobbit is one of the better audiobooks I've listened to. The plot begins slowly, but the world building is done very well. After a short amount of time, I was hooked.
The pacing of the story was excellent and continued to keep my attention throughout.
Rob Inglis brought meaningful and believable voice and personality to each character. I was very impressed by his narration.
There was not a moment in the book that I felt particularly moved during.
The Hobbit is a good book for adults and an excellent book for families.
The Rob Inglis readings are the most highly recommended for JR Tolkien's work, and for good reason. He brings the books to life, rivaled only by the quality of the writing itself.
This book is my all time favorite. I have read it yearly for several years. it never loses its luster. Thus is the first time I listened to the audible version. I was skeptical. But this is so well done. The reader is remarkable and captures each character so distinctly and with such richness I could easily see them in my mind. And he sings the songs with such commitment. Beautifully done.
I loved this story and the performance was pretty good. Rob Inglis is not quite as versatile as some readers in terms of making different voices for characters. I had a hard time telling the difference between voices sometimes.
I first read The Hobbit in the summer before entering high school. I love it then and still do. The narrator, Rob Inglis, does an outstanding job bringing the story to life in this unabridged audio edition.
