    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.

    "If Robert Littell didn't invent the American spy novel," says Tom Clancy, "he should have." In this spectacular Cold-War-as-Alice-in-Wonderland epic, Littell, "the American le Carre," takes us down the rabbit hole and into the labyrinthine world of espionage that has been the CIA for the last half-century. "Ostensibly a single novel, The Company can also be listened to as an anthology of cracking good spy stories," says (Publishers Weekly).

    Would you listen to The Company again? Why?

    Yes, it is 40 hours of listening but it kept my attention from beginning to end. I'm sure that there are a few twists and turns that slipped by me!


    What other book might you compare The Company to and why?

    None, it's pretty unique


    Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favorite?

    Probably the Sorcerer's Apprentice.


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

    I would have liked to but 40 hours makes it impossible


    Any additional comments?

    Just that it is one of the best Audiobooks I've ever 'read'
