    In Northanger Abbey, a young woman's penchant for sensational Gothic novels leads to misunderstandings in the matters of the heart. Austen's first, this is considered by many to be among her most charming novels.

    Darwin8u says: "Austen's Cold Bath or Austen's City Limits"
    "Well-written, very well-read. Not my cup of tea."

    It was not my taste, but it is a very excellent audio book. For me, it is last place among my likes.

    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene when the main character is lied to and wronged.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    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!"
    "Keep listening! You will be rewarded at the end!"

    What made the experience of listening to The Hobbit the most enjoyable?

    I would say that this book takes me out of myself and brings me into an adventure.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Hobbit?

    Definitely the riddles were memorable, but the end of the book was so poignant, and deep with wisdom.


    Have you listened to any of Rob Inglis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Rob Inglis's recordings of the Lord of the Rings trilogy is the best audio book in the market I think. It literally changed my life.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me cry at the end of the book.
