    Since Darwin's day, we've been told that sexual monogamy comes naturally to our species. Mainstream science - as well as religious and cultural institutions - has maintained that men and women evolved in families in which a man's possessions and protection were exchanged for a woman's fertility and fidelity. But this narrative is collapsing....

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I'm not sure I'm going to finish. I like the concept, but while I'm doing stuff around the house, I hear the narrator speaking, but not necessarily absorbing the words she's saying.


    Would you recommend Sex at Dawn to your friends? Why or why not?

    Depends on how into the topic they are


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator has a rather monotone delivery that turns me off.


    Was Sex at Dawn worth the listening time?

    Again, not so sure. I'm only part way through part one and I'd rather catch up on some podcasts.

    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.

    Derek B. says: "A grand literary adventure!"
    "An old favorite"

    Where does The Hobbit rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I've known this recording of this book since I was a child. I am entirely biased when I say it's an all time favorite for me.


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

    Bilbo meeting Smaug is up there, but also Bilbo and the 3 Trolls.


    What does Rob Inglis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Well, he does sing.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    You should ask Peter Jackson, but "There and Back Again" is a go-to.


    Any additional comments?

    A classic. Entirely worthy.
