    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.

    What would have made The Hobbit better?

    I think I would have enjoyed it more if all of the narrators voices didn't sound the same. I found it hard to follow who was speaking.


    Would you ever listen to anything by J. R. R. Tolkien again?

    Probably not. All of his stormiest are pretty much the same. Plus once you've seen the movies you know how the story ends.


    How could the performance have been better?

    If there were multiple people reading the different parts I think I would have been able to get into the story more.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    At first I was on Thorin's side. I felt bad that he lost his homeland in such a way. But when he finally regained it he completely changed and I found myself rooting against him.


    Any additional comments?

    I am still skeptical about the whole book on tape thing. I love to read but I'm not sure how I feel about being read too. I will stick with it though and give it another chance.
