    The radio dramatisation of The Hobbit became a classic when it was first broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in 1968 and it continues to delight today. Tolkien's famous saga, the prelude to the Lord of the Rings, has all the ingredients of fantasy and adventure: dwarves, elves, goblins and trolls, a fearsome dragon, a great wizard, a perilous quest, and a dramatic climax.

    Mary says: "Takes a little getting used to"
    "Revisiting a favorite from my childhood."

    What made the experience of listening to The Hobbit (Dramatised) the most enjoyable?

    I first experienced this story on the radio in 1977, over NPR. They played it in half hour installments and my sister and I got to listen in my parents bedroom with a big bowl of popcorn. I loved the vivid mental images created by the actors readings... and the music is just as folksy and wonderful as I remembered. It will ALWAYS be my favorite way to experience "The Hobbit."


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters voices are just as I imagined


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I LOVE Bilbo's scene with Smaug.


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

    I like spacing it into 30 minute sections.


    Any additional comments?

    Get it. You won't regret it. BBC BRILLIANCE.
