Addicted to books, especially audiobooks. Read lots and prosper!
So happy for The Hobbit to be on to be on audible unabridged. Abridged versions of books are just so wrong it's a crime. The narrator is wonderful. He is very able to carry this story and separate the voices. His tone and the depth of his voice, it's a pleasure to listen to. The story is after all the Hobbit. It's wonderful and fantastical and an adventure that everyone must take at least once in their lives.
three favorite words: "This is Audible."
I am so excited to see unabridged versions of the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings Trilogy made available on Audible. Rob Inglis is simply the best narrator ever. He gives each character a unique voice and makes listening to these classics a delight!
All 4 books should be considered "must reads" for everyone.
This book lives up to its name! the adventures prove exciting and delightful! I love the way it was produced. I will always love J.R.R. Tolkien work.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book! I was very impressed by the performance of the reader - great voices for various characters and great singing of the many songs that Tolkien has in the book.
There is a reason this is a classic. It not only is a fantasy tale full of Dwarves, Hobbits, Elves, & Men, but it is a tale designed to touch the soul. One cannot be untouched by the humanity of the Hobbit who will sacrifice all for peace and cares only slightly for wealth.
The Hobbit is an all time favorite. Great narrating too...except for the singing!! Dear God, I've never heard such tone-deaf, tuneless singing. Tolkien's songs have such beautiful lyrics, and can be read as poetry. I wish the narrator would have taken that approach.
The story is great and the narration brings it to life really well. Two things that I found annoying were some of the voices like ogres and goblins and the songs (which should have been narrated and not sung).
