    (9680)

    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 try another book from J. R. R. Tolkien and/or Rob Inglis?

    Yes, I would give him another shot. It's not his fault that the online profile was misunderstood by me.


    Would you ever listen to anything by J. R. R. Tolkien again?

    Yes I would consider listening again. But not likely as I wasn't impressed.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Rob Inglis’s performances?

    He has a good voice and editor did a good job as far as I can tell, just not my thing.


    What character would you cut from The Hobbit?

    So many Dwarfs, so little needing to be cut. I don't think I would cut any as someone might like the story, just not what I thought it was based on what I read.


    Any additional comments?

    I am a huge fan of Game of Thrones. This isn't similar at all. No ones fault I guess. Just a heads up.
