    The system was simple. Everyone understood it. Books were for burning, along with the houses in which they were hidden. Guy Montag was a fireman whose job it was to start fires, and he enjoyed his job. He had been a fireman for 10 years, and never questioned the pleasure of the midnight runs, nor the joy of watching pages consumed by flames. He never questioned anything, until he met a 17-year-old girl who told him of a past when people were not afraid, and a professor who told him of a future in which people could think. Guy Montag suddenly realized what he had to do.

    What did you love best about Fahrenheit 451?

    Really drew me into the story. I couldn't put it down.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The free spirited Clarisse was my favorite character because she got Montag to think and question what he was doing.

    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.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Reading the book the songs have no melody and the story is a little slow at times. In the audio book, the songs are sung and the story seems to move on quickly and is hard to put down. Very enjoyable and a good preparation for the Hobbit movie.


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

    The eagles.
