Tolkien starts a story that holds you through to the end of the Lord of the Rings trilogy. It would be hard to find a better story teller than Tolkien.
Rob Inglis' performance is worthy of the book, and brings the excellent story through to the listener.
YES. This is just a great book. Super intro for LOR.
Bilbo's ability to go with the flow and still be able to make a decision himself.
The Hobbit and the Lord of the Ring should only be listened to when narrated Rob Inglis.
It's The Hobbit and everyone has read and loves the book, myself included.
I am disappointed with the poor narration editing. It turned me off and I didn't finish the book.
Very nicely read, it does take you into the story. I am really enjoying it.
His voice match the story perfectly. Very nicely done, different tones of voices for each character but all very interesting. Even singing the dwarf melodies, it is very enjoyable.
I have not finish yet so I will say.
Was fun, but wasn't The Lord of the Rings. It felt like a warmup to the trilogy. After listening to it I feel like I need to listen to the trilogy to see if the two books line up since a few things were said/happened that I don't remember from fitting the books I read many many years ago.

Tolkien's tale it very tough to narate. I have read it three times and this is the first time I listened to it. No one person can sing like an Elf and reading these songs was not fun and listening to them was even less enjoyaable I thought. All in all, I thought Rob Inglis did a good job on a tough piece of work to deliver. Just ask Peter Jackson!
All the Hobbits...I've read the entire series 3-4 times, and saw all the movies, sometimes twice.
no-it was hard to follow the book and the reader was not dynamic
had a more interesting reader
This audiobook was amazingly well done by Rob Inglis. It took me a chapter to get used to his style, but by the end of the book I was having dreams with his voice narrating the events.
The hobbit itself is an enjoyable book, and you can of course read better reviews of the story elsewhere. In terms of the audiobook though, I would highly recommend it if you wish to read the Hobbit.
