The story was wonderful, of course! And the narration was on the whole very good, but the songs were all performed in the same dull manner with little regard to their feel.
I enjoyed listening to this audio book so much! The reader made it come alive, even singing the songs instead of only reading them. This was my second time listening to it and I'm sure I will listen again!
I've always been a fan of The Hobbit, and Rob Inglis does the book justice, especially with the bits of song he sings, or the efforts to bring life to the various voices throughout the book. overall a fantastic book, read with a good voice.
I think people will read The Hobbit independent of any review, so I'll speak to the narration. Really enjoyed the voice work for this book. With so many characters it would have been easy for voices to blend or vary wildly, but I found it to be very engaging and not distracting from the story. There are a number of songs in the book that I found myself wanting to speed through, but I think that's something I would've done in the written version as well. Overall, I think the voice work really helped me finally enjoy the Hobbit-it's my 3rd attempt. Looking forward to the LOTR trilogy by the same actor
I am very interested in how other people think. Reading allows the time for thinking about what is being said so that I can feel the words.
the narration was excellent and of course the story is excellent. i wish Tolkien had written a lot more.
