    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.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Hobbit to be better than the print version?

    actually yes. I usually read print when ever I can but supplement with audio. in the case of The Hobbit, the narrators performance was so exceptional, I actually preferred to listen to him read the book than my own plain English brain's interpretation. This was especially truer when it came to the singing parts of the story.


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

    yes, I looked for opportunities to listen, e.g. I walked extra long just to listen more.
