Bilbo is a normal hobbit and enjoys being lazy, eating, and drinking tea, but when placed in a perilous situation he rises to the occasion.
The narrator does a great voice acting and holds a tune for the small songs. I generally throw this on to fall asleep to, if it was too compelling I wouldn't get to sleep. No buyers remorse here.
Nothing needs to be said about this classic epic, a wonderful story.
The narration was pretty good. Inglis has an fittingly deep British voice for the story. Several of the characters are unmistakable. My only gripe is that his pacing is just a little slow, with some odd pauses. This makes it a little tiresome to listen to many chapters in a row. Still it wasn't enough to make me give up on listening and I found myself often so engrossed in the story he was telling to take no notice
I thought the author is and was ahead of his and would loved to have met him I am. I can not believe I have cheated myself all these from these books. I will cheat myself no longer even though I have a comprehension disability and I have to listen over and over again!!!!!
The narrator's voice is able to cover the wide variety of accents and speaking styles that are so poignant and fundamental to the story.
I felt like I too had gone on my own little adventure during the course of my reading.
A worth while read "surely".^^
