    Bilbo Baggins, a gentle hobbit who loves the comforts of home, reluctantly joins a company of dwarves on a journey to recover plundered gold from a fierce dragon. It's a tale of high adventure and astonishing courage, and a magical prelude to the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

    Brianna says: "Many years of enjoyment"
    "Can't go wrong with The Hobbit"
    Overall

    The Hobbit is indeed a classic, and I have listened to different versions. This one was just as good as the rest. Seriously, the people saying that the accents have to be British are missing the point. The Hobbit was not in England! It's in a mythical land that doesn't exist. That being said, the story is wonderful and if you haven't gotten a chance to read or listen to it, this would be a great way to do it.

    In the ancient lands of Middle-earth, a place of elves and dwarves, Orcs and wizards, the darkest evil and the brightest good, a hobbit named Frodo Baggins embarks on a perilous quest: to carry the One Ring, ruler of all the Rings of Power, into the shadowy land of Mordor and destroy it in the fires where it was forged.

    David says: "Classic stuff!"
    "Great book"
    Overall

    This is classic fantasy at its greatest. I've listened to several versions of the Lord of the Rings, and I like them all, this one included. If you haven't read the books or you've only seen the movies, then do yourself a favor and listen or read the books.

    Simon Kent is just an ordinary teenager trying to cope with the loss of his parents and the bullies at school . . . or so he thinks. After meeting an outspoken girl with strange hair that changes colors with her mood, he is swept into a futuristic world filled with dragonlike creatures, vast technology, and enslaved giants. But Simon also stumbles upon a secret: He can perform magic in this parallel world!

    Paul says: "Great Story But....."
    "More Than I Expected"
    Overall

    A friend referred Paraworld Zero to me, and I was at first skeptical, but after I got into it, I could see the gold in this debut novel. The author of the book and narrator of the audio book, Matthew Peterson, has a future ahead of him... if he can get a larger publisher to back him up. Heck, after reading/listening to this young adult novel, I would love to see a larger company do it justice with a better cover and even a movie adaptation. The actual writing is excellent, though, and the narration of the audio book is above average. I was startled to hear multiple narrators, but I got used to it and discovered that it helped in the overall production. It ends on a great cliffhanger that makes you want to read the next one. I also like how everything came together at the end. It had some mystery, a little romance, and a lot of strange creatures. Kids will like this one.
