My original review of this performance was negative, but as the book proceeded, I found I enjoyed the narration better and better. Overall, enjoyed the book very much.
Rob Inglis's narration reminds me of my grandfather reading stories. The emotion put in to his speech had me feeling like I was 8. Camping in the backyard listening to the stories of sword, sorcery, and adventure.
Thoroughly enjoyed this audio book! the book is too detailed to follow...but this audiobook helped me get my nerd on without taking a month to wade through the book!
If you watched the movies first and have listened to Roy Dotrice narrate A Song of Ice and Fire then your expectations are too high. The movies add so much more detail. 3, 3-hour long movies.. that's the same as Lord of the Rings. And those were 3 books all thicker than The Hobbit.
And few can live up to Roy Dotrice's performances. He's set the world record for most characters in a book by a single voice actor. Not to say this story and performance aren't bad. They're just underwhelming in comparison.
how long does but every time I read it I decided to try the audiobook it was very entertaining it was very well-read there was a motion the person reading this little voice changes for different characters it was very wonderful if you like The Hobbit I would assume that you would like this
The audio was absolutely magnificent. Golum's character was brought to life so beautifully and the other dwarves were voiced so wonderfully. Each character was brought to life with such variety and passion. I was able to tell who was speaking and there were 14 plus different characters who all needed different voices. The enthusiasm was brilliant and the book was so alive and enchanting to listen to. For those who don't think the hobbit is such an easy book to read on its own, this makes it so much easier! I would recommend this to anyone who seeks adventure and loves a great fantasy novel to pass down for generations!
