Of course I'd listen to it again! I love this book and the narrator who reads it has such a way of bringing the characters alive.
My favorite character is Bilbo. Mostly because the story is centered on him.
My favorite scene has got to be Riddles in the Dark!
Oh, I could definitely make a better movie from this book that Peter Jackson is doing! No offense Peter... I would split the book into 2 parts and have the first one just be The Hobbit and the second movie's subtitle would be "There and Back Again".
Probably a combination of the accent and the way in which this book was written. I had a hard time following the plot but then again I'm somewhat of a simpleton. Oh and the singing was awful! (no offense)
Incredible classic story brought to life with top-notch vocal performance.
It's hard not to root for Bilbo. All of us can relate to him in some way.
Rob Inglis is one of the very best. He also narrated the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. Having the same actor voice all four books provides excellent consistency.
I have listened to it many times, after having read the book many times. There are no surprises now, but always a deep sense of satisfaction.
Incredible book, and excellent voice performance! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Each audiobook I have listened to or whisper synced, has been a true delight. The Hobbit: at the top of my list. For reading or listening. A great book. And journey !!
Return of the King. The Two Towers ! They are the continuing adventures of the Baggins' Clan !
This gentleman makes one feel like, part of the story. Very relaxing voice.
I could feel myself, wanting to help the travelers !
I would recommed this book wanting to learn more about the beginning of the Book of Rings, gives you all the information, this will give you all the information. I have read the first book on the Hobbit and you will a lot more details.
Bilbo, was the best character because he will some Frodo and you get a change to learn more of the other charaters in the book.
I think it always better to read the book and that will give you a certen bit of knowledge. Then when you read the book you are ablt to listen, which is always good, and most of the time you get even more infromation.
Great book of all time
I have read the hobbit a few times; I just started the audiobook version for the first time. it's great! I know the story so I can recommend it already. I've listened to enough to say that the voice performance is well done, so I can easily recommend the audiobook. a small annoyance I found I will remark on. there are a few cuts in the reading I've heard so far, they are distracting (one second and half second delays). a minor irritation from the overall solid reading. hope that is helpful to know. enjoy!
Yes. Thoroughly enjoyed the story and the quality of the reading.
The reader's ability to change his voice to match the characters of the story. I am also glad it is a reading of the book, and not a dramatization of the story.
There and back again.
Rob Inglis was masterful in his reading of the book. He did a great job of changing his voice to match the characters. I am glad to have found an actual reading of the book instead of a dramatization.
I listen to many audible books, the hobbit was one I was looking forward to. I had read the hobbit in High School, and remembered enjoying it immensely. I did not find the Audio version to be that great. The narration and deliverance of the story was phenomenal, I found the story to be choppy and hard to follow. I found myself rewinding, almost as if it were abridged, like I missed something? The narration is worth the listen. I believe some books require much focus and must be read to be fully enjoyed, my opinion only. I was disappointed.
the riddles with gollum
It made me laugh every now and then. It had some good parts to listen to again.
The narrator captured the tone of this book perfectly. It's been my most enjoyable listen of any audiobook I've ever listened to.
First one. So far, so good...
Had read it before, long time ago, so I wasn't really surprised by anything. I just wanted a refresher.
I would say so, yes.
No. Like I said, I had read it before.
The narrator actually sings (or attempts to) all the songs in the book. I almost had to remove my headphones for those parts because it hurt my ears.
