  • The Hobbit (Dramatised)

    • ORIGINAL (3 hrs and 42 mins)
    • By J. R. R. Tolkien
    • Narrated By uncredited

    The radio dramatisation of The Hobbit became a classic when it was first broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in 1968 and it continues to delight today. Tolkien's famous saga, the prelude to the Lord of the Rings, has all the ingredients of fantasy and adventure: dwarves, elves, goblins and trolls, a fearsome dragon, a great wizard, a perilous quest, and a dramatic climax.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I recommend this audio performance only because there aren't any better alternatives.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The audio is so dramatised that it is hard to hear sometimes and the other noises for dramatic effect are really loud and distracting.

    Island of the Blue Dolphins is the remarkable story of a strange and beautiful Indian girl who lives a serene and courageous life as the solitary survivor on an island off the California coast. Left behind when the rest of her tribe fled, she waits, year after year, for a ship to come for her. She fights for her very survival, building a shelter, hunting for food, and making weapons to stave off her enemies, the wild dogs who took her brother.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is a classic book I read as a child and I wanted my children to hear it. The performance by Tantoo Cardinal made it even more real. Her accent was wonderful and added richness to the story. My kids begged to listen to it every morning on the way to school.
