The Hobbit was one of my very favorite childhood books, and I decided to revisit the lonely mountain with the release of the movie this year. If you are like me, you most likely re-read books with more of a skimming mentality rather than a first time thorough read through. This is impossible with the audiobook as every phrase and passage are stated explicitely allowing your mind to become immersed in the brilliance of Tolkien's diction and storytelling. Its amazing how much detail and character development can be fit into such a small book (compared to the lord of the rings). It's truly as though you are going along for the adventure with Baggins and Company. Totally worth the money.
On par with my favorites, including the Lord of the Rings and the Song of Ice and Fire series.
I was inspired to get the audiobook with the release of the film (which I have not seen) and was quite surprised at how much I enjoyed it. It took a couple hours to really hit the meat of the story but that's not to say the beginning was boring by any means. The author depiction of religion is refreshing and yet not preachy in the best way possible. Listening to how religion shaped Pi's childhood and his relationship with the animals at the zoo were my favorite parts.
Very satisfying read and expertly delivered. Worth the money (although I purchased it for 6.95$ on sale, I would have paid full price)
I would probably not try another book by the author William Davis. While the information is worthwhile on the whole, some (see minimal) investigation on google reveals that a lot of the source material for the book is fraudulent. That being said the message provided and the benefits to be gained from a keto-esque diet make it a still worthwhile read.
The most shocking to me was the depictions of how the grain wheat has changed through the years
