Publisher's Summary

Bilbo Beutlin, der kleine Hobbit, macht sich auf den Weg zum Einsamen Berg, um den rechtmäßigen Schatz der Zwerge zurückzuholen, den der Drache Smaug gestohlen hat. Als er auf seiner Reise einen Ring findet und ihn arglos einsteckt, ahnt er nicht, was für eine Rolle der Ring einmal spielen wird…

Gert Heidenreich, die Stimme J.R.R. Tolkiens, erzählt, wie Bilbo sich vom ängstlichen Hobbit zum mutigen Meisterdieb mausert. Wort für Wort ist jetzt das Schicksal Mittelerdes und somit das Tolkiensche Werk zu hören.

Great for Language Comprehension Practice

I like to listen to books in other languages for language practice.

This works best if it is a book that I have already listened to/read in English,
as then the material is more familiar.

For new languages, I will often try to listen to a book in parallel:
say, 15 minutes of English, then 15 minutes of the other languages, etc.
As of yet, there is a fairly limited selection of foreign language audiobooks available in the U.S. store, and an even smaller selection that are available in both English and a variety of other languages.

(And, for some reason, the Spanish ones seem often to be abridged, which makes them much less useful for this type of "rosetta stone" parallel listening practice.)

But it is slowly getting better.

Congratulations to Audible for slowly increasing its foreign language material,
and here is hoping that it will continue to do so.

And perhaps some books in Mandarin and Arabic also?

An Enjoyable Listen

A great story in English or in German. Well worth a listen. I am learning German and I have listen to this story several times. Each time I listen to it the more I understand and the better the story gets.

Beautifully narrated

This is my first audiobook in German which I found to be a fabulous translation and of simply exquisite narration. At times The Hobbit can be a little bit slow, but Gert Heidenreich gave this much-loved story the attention it deserves. I particularly enjoyed the voices of the characters and the songs.
