Bilbo Baggins, a gentle hobbit who loves the comforts of home, reluctantly joins a company of dwarves on a journey to recover plundered gold from a fierce dragon. It's a tale of high adventure and astonishing courage, and a magical prelude to the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
They're precious! Listen to all of our classic NPR dramatizations of J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings series:

"The best available." (Booklist)
"This collection...is a masterpiece." (The Courier)
"Spirited productions...stirring music." (Washington Post)
I loved the story, but the dramatazation was horrible. I would have rather just had it read. I had to fast forward it sometimes especially through the dragon part to keep from laughing!
i love it because it has sound effects and you can really know what's going on... I really like the different kind of voices for each character👍👏👊
The audio on this was all over the place. The sound effects were louder than the dialogue at parts and I think they removed a lot of narration and just replaced it with sound effects that really took away from the experience. I bought it to listen with my family in the car after we finished the Harry Potter books but we had to turn it off because it was so hard to listen to with so many different noises and voices going on at once. Would definitely recommend a different version.
