This is one of the best audiobook experiences I had in the last few years, I heard it before in a full cast version, but honestly, if you want to enjoy this, first, you need an unabridged version, and second, a great narrator.
The story itself is one of the most fascinating adventures you'll find around, so much that when reaching the end you fell kinda sad is getting to an end, and I can't really say that for every audiobook out there.
Comparing The Hobbit to other stories is not easy, it's a story like no other, you need to listen to the whole J.R.R. Tolkien books to get the full idea, there's Narnia and perhaps Eldest and Brisingr, but not comparable.
The voices are just espectacular, the pace, the rythm, you get so attached to the style that you fell you can't stop the audiobook until it is finished.
The Hobbit, how the will of a small hobbit can make a difference!
Overall, 5 stars seems to be not enough, there are some things to improve perhaps in the recording, little "hiss" sound now and then, but the story and narrator are so good, you just ignore them after a while.
One of the best, this is really how Steve Jobs was, nothing was left aside, despite the success, you can see where his flaws were, which only makes it human and you can learn what made him different!
The real person he was, simple, what I learned the best:
Not the best reading, but, it was good, keeps you engaged.
I'm an Android user, don't own any apple product at the time being, probably in the future, I really enjoyed this biography, and got to know more about Steve Jobs philosophy, very interesting concepts, ideas, and thinking, I recommend this to EVERYONE, not just for apple fans ;)
