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