The hobbit is one of the best books I have ever read! It is is simply an amazing adventure and a must read. The book has an amazing plot and is written in a narraters point of view.
I bought this book several years ago after the Lord of the Rings movies. I never read those but have heard so much great things about the books. Anyways was unable to sit down long enough to read the Hobbit after buying it do to my work schedule. I got about 3/4 of the way through it and decided to give this a try. The reading of the story and the different voices though can still hear his voice in the was enough to give each character their own presence. If you don't have time to sit down and read the book this is a great alternative way off getting through the book. I joined to give this a try so got the book on credit. I may find it hard to pay the price for the book or any for that matter. If you are a member and don't mind the pricing I highly recommend the book. The story its self is worth it. The story that no matter your size or type of person you are when put to the test you might even surprise yourself. I know that is not what everyone gets from this story, but it is one of the things I get from this book. Enjoy the read or at least the listen.
I've watched the movies and the book was definitely better! No ridiculous added love interest. Book was better than the movies and will be relisenting to it again soon.
A very entertaining story that was well written and well imagined.
I really don't read much in this genre. I'm more of a hard Sci-fi reader. I just felt like this was one of the books I should read and I was pleasantly surprised by how good a story it was.
I haven't but he has a pleasant voice and even managed to carry off the singing bits quite well.
What book did Peter Jackson read?
As I would say in the US Navy for outstanding, BZ (Bravo Zulu).. I read Tolkien when I was but a child and thoroughly enjoyed his fiction. Listening to his stories ups the enjoyment. WELL DONE!! I am now 82. I still love to read, but listening is so much better! Thank you Audible for these outstanding audio stories.
Narrator is tremendous - very animated. Listened to it 30 minutes at a time prior to falling asleep - a great unwind book with a cool story.
Read the book as a pre teen so the story is very familiar.
I love the book very much I felt as if I was there with Gandalf Bilbo all the hobbits the dwarfs and the elves. can't wait to listen to the rest of the books in the trilogy
