The pace of the storyteller is so different from than as a reader. There is an extra life in the pauses, starts and stops that adds so much.
not really. I was underwhelmed. I was happy enough, realizing I was listening to a classic. But it is for children, not adults.
It was well done.
good listening. Family friendly.
Me? I'm not who you think I think I am.
You just can't go wrong with the Hobbit. The narration was excellent and the story is a classic.. Don't pass it by just because you have already read the book. Listen and fall in love with it all over again.
I read and listened to both and they were the same. I just like audio since my commute is kind of long.

I am a huge Tolkien fan.
This is a timeless tale of good verses evil. It teaches the reader values of trust , friendship and honor, as well as disappointment, deciet and greed. It shows us that the most unlikely, untrained, smallest of them all, would prove to be the greatest.
When Bil Bo drew upon his own strength and courage, to saved them all from certian death.
As the story progressed I came to love Bil Bo
When Bil Bo threw caution to the wind and drew upon his inner currage and saved them all.
Mr Inglis does a great job on narrating this book. He has a great delivery style and seemed to enjoy the read. The book is very good, first time I have read/listened to it and I now have a new movie in my head.
I would comment that listening to this on my android device it kept having points where it sounded like the recording stopped and then it would go again. May have been my device although I haven't experienced it on other books.
Over all this is a great book, I look forward to listening to the other 3 in the series.
Love the songs and narration! Really a great listen with the distinction of characters and the tempo of the story.
It had been over 10 years since I last read The Hobbit. So nice to come home to old friends! There were several characters and events that I had completely forgotten. Such a pleasure to get reacquainted.
I can't tell you how excited I was to finally see Audible offer the LOTR series narrated by Rob Inglis! He is an incredible narrator equally proficient in character voices and general narration. I own the trilogy on CD but have really wanted to add it to my Audible collection for greater portability. Thank you!
If it wasn't a challenge, it wouldn't be worth doing.
I loved that it was both a fantastic story AND great for most ages. There was no swearing, no sex, nothing that an older child couldn't listen to. Yet, it was an amazing story.
The original story was something I couldn't get into, I owned the book for years and never got into it. Ingles was able to bring the characters to life and truly read the story it was meant to be read. I loved it!
The Hobbit is a fantastic journey and undoubtedly a classic. The story is wonderfully written and the narration is fantastic. The songs are very well sung and there is enough variation in tone and accent to keep the listener entranced. This is truly a masterpiece and I can give it no end of praise.
