GREAT BOOK RUINED BY SKIPPING OF STORY!
If you could sum up The Hobbit in three words, what would they be?
fantasy, war & engaging
What did you like best about this story?
The riddles with Gollum by far! :)
Have you listened to any of Martin Shaw’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
PLEASE DON'T SKIP SO MANY PARAGRAPHS! I WAS TRYING TO FOLLOW ON WITH MY COPY AND IT MADE IT NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE! NO WONDER IT WAS ONLY 6 HOURS COMPARED TO 9 HOURS OF MOVIE TIME! Otherwise a great reading! :)
