    Smaug certainly looked fast asleep, when Bilbo peeped once more from the entrance. He was just about to step out onto the floor when he caught a sudden thin ray of red from under the drooping lid of Smaug's left eye. He was only pretending to be sleep! He was watching the tunnel entrance! Whisked from his comfortable hobbit-hole by Gandalf the wizard and a band of dwarves, Bilbo Baggins finds himself caught up in a plot to raid the treasure hoard of Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous dragon.

    What other book might you compare The Hobbit, Part 2 to and why?

    I found The Hobbit's structure easier to follow than The Lord of the Rings. I sometimes struggle with Tolkien's style but that's just me. I know many who love it.


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

    Rob Inglis is an excellent audiobook presenter.


    Any additional comments?

    I really can't understand why Audible has split some books into two purchases? Why do this? Who reads/ listens to half a book? Other books cost more or 2 credits, so I just can't understand this.
