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
This is one of the best books I have ever read. J.R.R Tolkien is a brilliant author. He dose such a great job at writing the Hobbit. The narrator dose a good enough job at reading all the different voice. So over all it is a great book and a great audio book!
wonderful story. I found it a bit hard to follow but I think that was probably an issue on my end not the book itself. I didn't particularly care for the performance.
This ranks among the very best.
The songs come to life with a melody I couldn't find when reading.
There are quite a few characters to keep track of. Rob Inglis gives them all equal personality and the attention they deserve. It is a worthy reading of one of the best novels of all time.
