    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.

    The story is very good, as most people are aware already. But this narrator it seems was born to tell it. Great voices, great narration, Inglis and Tolkien go together beautifully.

    The story of a pole, searching for his purpose in life. "The perfect gift to give a child or grandchild for their high school or college graduation. Also Father's Day. Also, other times."

    Short but entertaining throughout. Hanks and Colbert go well together. If you like the Colbert Report, you'll definitely like this. It's very Stephen.

    Young David Balfour is cheated out of his inheritance by his uncle, who then has him kidnapped and forced into servitude on a sailing ship bound for a long voyage. What follows is one of the most spellbinding stories ever written.

    What didn’t you like about John L. Chatty’s performance?

    Whenever the narrator was just telling the story, it was fine. However, when it came to the dialogue, the characters that David had to meet all had such horrible voices that it made me want to stop listening. Some of them were just so screechy and horrible I just couldn't take it anymore.


    Any additional comments?

    The audio quality was also bad. Every once in a while the sound would dip making the narrator unintelligible for a few seconds before it came back. Skip this recording and find another version of "Kidnapped."
