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.
The plot is geared toward younger readers, but I find that the mood, characters, and setting of the story are more entertaining than the plot. That, for me, gives this book good marks for rereadability. Immerse yourself in Tolkien's world and enjoy every moment while you're there.
I think that was my tenth time listening to that book. Tolkien, in his time and era, was second to none; and if it wasn't from Brandon Sanderson he may have gotten to keep that spot.
Great book. narrator is perfectly suited for the story. storyline is seamless , easy to follow and takes your imagination to new heights.
It was Tolkien's books that made me get into writing as a hobby and kindled my love of reading. The Hobbit remains my most favorite book of all time having read it over twenty times in the past 10 years. Rob Inglis is a great narrator for this particular series as he brings the story and songs to life!
I have been training for endurance running for months and started this book while on my runs. When it got to Gollum I had to stop as I was laughing so hard at the voice Inglis gives him. Even with the short pauses in the later chapters (possible editing glitch) I thoroughly enjoyed the book.
