Couldn't put my iPod down. Can't wait to listen again with my son. Inglis brings the vibrant language to life in a way not felt when this book was "assigned" reading in high school (so many years ago). A great way to experience a classic piece of literature.
I haven't read The Hobbit since I was at high school many moons ago. listening to it brought back many memories of incessant reading, including by flashlight under the covers when it was past my bedtime :-) thoroughly enjoyed this...you
Wheel of Time. Both are epic tales of fantasy, mystical power, and heroic action.
Narration brings the characters to life. I could listen to Rob Inglis all day.
Yes. And I did.
I'd recommend everyone read this tale.
I loved listening to the unabridged version of the Hobbit. heard first in cartoon as a child, read as a young adult with my sophmoric mind, and finally listened to as an adult before seeing the motion pictures to help inspire a new generation of Tolkien fans. Very well done!
I would recommend this story and audiobook to anyone. Great, enjoyable story. Especially fun to hear it again after seeing the movies.
I didn't anticipate this but I really enjoyed comparing and contrasting the characters in the book to their movie counterparts. Thorin and Bard were the most fun to contrast in this way.
