    Arthur Conan Doyle never wasted time in getting his stories moving. His plots are always direct and refreshingly lucid, and the narrative has a velocity that sweeps you along right to the end. This was no doubt a large part of his immense worldwide success. Not surprisingly, each time he tried to end the series, his fans would howl in protest. But, as he says in the preface to his last collection of Sherlock Holmes stories, all good things must come to an end.

    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 consider the audio edition of The Hobbit to be better than the print version?

    It was really good, I wouldn't say it was better then the printed version. But the narrator did a fantastic job at bringing the characters to life.


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

    Lord of the Rings and/or Harry Potter because they have common elements int their stories.


    Which character – as performed by Rob Inglis – was your favorite?

    Bilbo, or maybe Gandalf.
