    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.

    Darwin8u says: "Victory after all, I suppose!"
    "Brilliant reading of this classic."

    The Hobbit is an excellent, if long-winded tale and Rob Inglis does a wonderful job bringing the characters to life. The songs are an unexpected treat. This performance makes The Hobbit much easier to read than a traditional book.

    Ensign Andrew Dahl has just been assigned to the Universal Union Capital Ship Intrepid, flagship of the Universal Union since the year 2456. Life couldn’t be better…until Andrew begins to pick up on the facts that (1) every Away Mission involves some kind of lethal confrontation with alien forces; (2) the ship’s captain, its chief science officer, and the handsome Lieutenant Kerensky always survive these confrontations; and (3) at least one low-ranked crew member is, sadly, always killed.

    Ken says: "It's all about the codas"
    "Fun and entertaining"

    Story

    Scalzi dances in and around the fourth wall in this tail and generally has fun with the entire story and it's meta- aspects. It is what it sounds like, and I really enjoyed the irony of Wil Wheatons reading of the book.
    This book is NOT a Star Trek rip off. But it may as well be. Highly recommended.
