"great adventure and story of loss and friendship"
from snippets overheard from my 7 year old son listening to it, I felt compelled to listen myself... we both enjoyed the story, a real adventure with nail biting (for kids) challenges and dangers. Overcome by courage, wit, trust and grit. a great story, read brilliantly by sir Ian. Will be listening to more in the series...
A fantastic narration of the book. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone interested in listening to this audiobook.
A must read

Despite being a bit thin on plot, what there is is very entertaining. Well read by Ian McEllen of course and above all else, gripping. If you like fantasy adventure, this is for you.
"Overall decent book."
Yes! I really enjoyed this book. The story seems a tad whimsical at first, but Sir Ian Mckellen keeps you engrossed in the story.
Well rounded lead character.
Not really, but I'm not that kind of person.
It's a easy "read." If you're on the fence. Just go for it!
"So much better than I thought it'd be!"
I would strongly recommend this book to anyone. It is a compelling tale which works amazingly well as a stand alone story.
Everything about this story was fantastic. I did not expect what seemed like a kids book to floor me like it did!
Having Gandalf read you a bed time story is indescribable.
The ending was heart-wrencing. Knowing before hand that this was part of a series, I did not see the ending coming!
The book is fantastic, the way it's put into the historical context is fascinating and the characters are dynamic and interesting. The voice over by Ian McKellen is wonderful, really believable. The way he gives each character they're own voice is brilliant, plus his voice is lovely to listen to, he has a very deep voice, definitely recommend!
"One of the greatest stories ever!"
This is one of the greatest stories I've ever heard. I have the books too. Not since Tolkien have I ever read such a believable work. There is an intense sense of evil and terror in each page. It grips you like an iron clamp. Read and hear it, it's amazing! Ian McKellen's reading is spectacular.
