    Like every other hobbit, Bilbo Baggins likes nothing better than a quiet evening in his snug hole in the ground, dining on a sumptuous dinner in front of a fire. But when a wandering wizard captivates him with tales of the unknown, Bilbo becomes restless. Soon he joins the wizard’s band of homeless dwarves in search of giant spiders, savage wolves, and other dangers. Bilbo quickly tires of the quest for adventure and longs for the security of his familiar home. But before he can return to his life of comfort, he must face the greatest threat of all.

    Story

    What an enjoyable experience! Like many people, I read "The Hobbit" as a child, and re-visiting it was magical. Rob Inglis, one of my favorite readers, brings this novel home- my only hesitation is the singing of the Dwarves' songs is often a bit more jovial than the lyrics suggest- in my head, many songs that were dirges became shanties in Inglis' interpretation. With that small hiccup aside, I have already listened to this 3 times, with many more to come I'm sure.
