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 his 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.

    I hadn't read this book in over 30 years. Listening to it in audio form was an excellent way to reacquaint myself. The story is wonderful, the characters are fantastic, the descriptions are captivating. Worth every minute of listening.

    Since 5th grade I've been transfixed with these works, 40 years. Now, I am able to share them with my children and my grandchild. They cross the boundaries of nation, Creed and economy to bring us all into this one world. Thank you again Mr. Tolkien, the world could use you right about now.
