    Bilbo Baggins, a gentle hobbit who loves the comforts of home, reluctantly joins a company of dwarves on a journey to recover plundered gold from a fierce dragon. It's a tale of high adventure and astonishing courage, and a magical prelude to the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

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

    Listening to the Hobbit took me back to my childhood when my father and I would read aloud and act out the voices. It is hard to compare audio to print as I love the feel of a book in my hands, I will say that I felt very much involved in the story as I listened to it unfold.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Gandalf has always been my favorite character. He has the uncanny ability to encourage the characters to push past their comfort zones to do his bidding; while they feel like it is completely of their own volition.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narration does match the pace of the story, which as we all know about Tolkein is frenzied at times and incredibly, heart achingly slow at others. The narration seems to pace the story as it was written to be read.


    Any additional comments?

    I have fallen asleep many times listening to this story, and always wake up from strange dreams to the voice of Golum. I might not suggest as a "bedtime story" if you are a light sleeper.
