    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.

    Darwin8u says: "Victory after all, I suppose!"
    "A timeless tale...a must read."

    Story
    Would you listen to The Hobbit again? Why?

    Yes. I have listened to it several times already, and it is a classic.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Bilbo Baggins, of course. He comes through with resourcefulness and luck throughout the story, and ends up learning quite a bit by the end.


    What does Rob Inglis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Rob is a stellar narrator who has the uncanny ability of bringing the characters alive in a way that I am pretty sure I would not have imagined had I read the book myself.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, it is that kind of book, but it of adequate length that this is not really feasible. Definitely a book that will leave you sitting in the driveway waiting for the chapter to end!!!
