Say something about yourself!
Rob Inglis was a wonderful storyteller. Just beautifully done. I have never heard anything narrated by him and I know I'll be on the look out for more stories. He was wonderful!
Gandalf is and will always be my favorite.
I space stories out over my drive to and from work. I caught myself putting this on while making dinner or getting ready in the morning. I read this many years ago and the magic had dimmed in my mind. My goodness, is it rejuvenated.
A problem I've always had with Tolkien is his lack of female characters. This goes double for this book. There are NO female characters in this book, which is a bit tiring. Yes, it's a classic but at some point you have to commend the movie for very slightly balancing out the sausage fest.
Ingles does a magnificent job narrating the tale and does an impressive job with the voices for the characters. This audiobook is highly recommended by me without reservation.
love every minute except for the songs in which case the reader sounds like an out-of-work opera singer with good reason other than that perfect. but then again I grew up with the Glenn Yarbrough Hobbit singing so I probably just have a preference for that.
Before the Lord of the Rings there was The Hobbit. Forget the movies the book is better
Fantasy All Day Every Day!
His many voices and the excitement in his reading.
Robert Inglis is one of the best narrators out there. I remember about 5 or 6 years ago I listened to The Hobbit with him narrating and I fell in love with his many character voices and his excitement when he read. I couldn't wait to download and listen to these books once I remembered who narrated them. I am now on The Earthsea Cycle just because of his good narration style. Lord of The Rings the movies are great! Don't get me wrong but I still think the book and him narrating are better!! I feel like he hit the voices perfectly. If you haven't read, watched or listened to Lord of The Rings and you enjoy fantasy you are missing out. You owe it to yourself to read what made fantasy what it is today. You can't go wrong with Robert Inglis either. I wish he did more books to be honest.
Wonderful story. Wonderfully done. We are ready for the Fellowship of the Ring. We've read the Ring cycle before but not the Hobbit. Now we are excited to listen to the others for a different experience.
I would definitely recommend this, though the story doesn't need much advertising based on the popularity of the movies. I loved this mostly because of the incredible job they did on the voices of the different characters. They were very believeable and came to life.
Probably the dwarves because of their humour and funny voices.
No I haven't.
I would have if I had the time.
