    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.

    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.

    Story

    Ann Perry makes the story come alive in that time era with such well developed characters. Always guessing about "who done it" and could not figure it out until the end, a great mystery !

    I love the way the author makes you feel like you are there in the story being a part of the no. 1 ladies detective agency and their personal lives. Learning their thoughts, world views, values and concerns is informative and entertaining.

  • Beautiful Outlaw: Experiencing the Playful, Disruptive, Extravagant Personality of Jesus

    Reading the Gospels without knowing the personality of Jesus is like watching television with the sound turned off. The result is a dry, two dimensional person doing strange, undecipherable things.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Beautiful Outlaw to be better than the print version?

    I personally like the audio, because this is a book you will listen to over and over....life changing !


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Beautiful Outlaw?

    When you really look at the world around you, you can discover the true personality of Jesus in how we tend to make it more religious than real! This is for those who really want to see the mysteries and wonders God has put before us, for these times ahead!


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

    I have read most of his books which are all great ........this one is for everyone and anyone who is searching for reality and truth in everyday terms!


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

    Yes and no.....yes because I had to hear it all but needed to listen to it again to get the depth of it all!
