The production was very well done, I wanted to reread The Hobbit since I has last read it 40 years ago. Now I am ready for the movie.
I have waited a long time for the unabridged version of this book to become available. I was disappointed in the readers interpretation of the characters. The BBC dramatization was so much better. A shame, this could have been so much better. Very disappointed!
Just did not like how he did the characters.
Sadness and disappointment in the performance.
I've been waiting for several years for the Rob Inglis' narration of Tolkien's classic series to come to Audible. No other narration or dramatization even comes close to this one, and I've listened to them all.
My husband and I enjoyed listening to The Hobbit while staying at a peaceful B&B that had little electronic media. We very much enjoyed watching the fire as the story of the hobbits, elves, and other folk of middle earth unfolded. Rob Inglis is amazing as a storyteller.
The chapter of the entrapment of the dwarfs by the spiders and Bilbo's subsequent rescue of them was truly exciting (and creepy)!
I loved the description of the shire and Misty Mountains.
The movie has been made and was wonderful in it's own way.
Obviously a well known, time honored story so I can't say much about the story itself. Rob Inglis' narration was perfect. I can't imagine anyone doing a better job at bringing the characters to life. Even though I've read the book a dozen times, I couldn't stop listening to the audio version.
Yes, because I can never get enough of the fantasy it provides.
His voice captivates the listener by speaking with emotion.
GOOD! I throughly enjoyed the story and songs included by the various characters Elves, Dwarves, even Hobbits. This is what I missed in previous versions.
I enjoyed The description of Bjorn's land, and his vile hatred of the Orc's and Trolls invasion.
The singing, the songs were the best aspect of his performance. And the clarity of his performance, was very refreshing.
Yes, if I had the available time I wold of listen to this book in one sittting.
I am a writer and a photographer, I enjoy playing the drums and exercising in my off hours.
I liked the audio book more than the presentations because of the way the narrator used different voices for the characters.
This story is a classic, there is nothing not to like here.
This well known classic is awesome in audio! The humor, details and story line capture your imagination and anticipation upon every time your listen to it. The lyrics sung by mythical characters really add a dimension to entering into the story.
