A very in-depth study of what is going on in the hobbit beyond the story. It reveals a lot about what Tolkien was thinking and his writing process.
Read by the author. He does a surprisingly good job. A few times he messes up, but it does not detract from the message or his passion about the subject.
No. I liked to listen to this one in smaller chunks because it was easier to absorb the information. But it was exciting to come back to it.
Really good for people who are interested in literature and the writing process.
I'm very glad I didn't buy the print version, because the audio is EXCELLENT. Tina Fey delivers an amazingly funny performance.
I really enjoyed a lot of the stories from behind the scenes at SNL.
She uses a lot of voices and characters for the people and events that she describes. It really adds a lot to the story.
It was really factually interesting. The narrator was really monotonous and difficult to concentrate on.
I work with a company that sells products to Walmart... So I found some of the insights about how the Walmart works and their history to be quite fascinating... but it was just a little too dry for me.
