    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.

    "One of the best Narrations Ever"

    Story
    Would you listen to The Hobbit again? Why?

    This is a classic story with vivid imagery, fantastical realms and plausible events. The story is wonderful, full of adventure and action - and even though I listened to it after the Lord of the Rings, it was wonderful to see Bilbo's origins. A really, really good story, great for kids and adults.


    What does Rob Inglis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The songs from the dwarfs are wonderful, and Rob gives many characters their own voice, separate and distinct.


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

    I could have - but it is quite long!


    Any additional comments?

    A must for preteens and teens, wonderful for adults who never read it before (like me!).
