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.
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.
