    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.

    "Excellent book that is wonderfully recorded!"

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Hobbit to be better than the print version?

    I don't know if I could say that the audio is "better" than a print version, but it is much more convenient. I love reading an actual book, but this audio book is narrated so well that it is easy to listen to for hours!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Hobbit?

    There are too many, but probably Bilbo's first confrontation with Smaug, the dragon.


    Have you listened to any of Rob Inglis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, I have all of the Lord of the Rings audiobooks on CD's, and I decided to buy this one off of audible to make it easier to listen to. Rob Inglis is a masterful performer, and he does an excellent job "The Hobbit" as well as all of the "Lord of the Rings" books!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It is a great book that made me both laugh and cry. I think the mark of a truly great book is that when you have finished reading it (or listening to it), you miss the characters. That is indeed what happened to me after reading this book, and it is probably the reason that I have the audio version as well!
