Publisher's Summary

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 - a treasure-troving dragon named Smaug.

In this fantasy classic, master storyteller J.R.R. Tolkein creates a bewitching world filled with delightful creatures and thrilling dangers. Narrator Rob Inglis will hold listeners of all ages spellbound with his skillful portrayal of hobbits, dwarves, and enchanted beasts.

    "Great story. Narrator was excellent!"

    I was impressed with this story. I hope to find more novels with the same narrator. Enough said here.

    "Excellent reading of the book!"

    Rob Inglis does an amazing job bringing the story to life! When I read this in book form years ago, I felt the songs on the book were long and boring like throwing poems in the middle of an interesting story. Rob's singing actually makes them an enjoyable part of the story that brings it to life.

    "It's The Hobbit, what did you expect!"

    My first audiobook, and definitely not my last. And as for the real book, it's a classic, no need to go any further than that.
