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.

This is my first audio book and could not have been more pleasantly surprised. The book was extremely well narrated. Rob Inglis has made this experience unforgettable. I have read all the LOTR Books and this is my favorite time yet, Thank you.

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.

It's a beautiful reading that really captivates you, it helps that the story is amazing and the narrator can hold your attention. Although I did notice the characters didn't seem to ever have a solid voice which was confusing but ammusing.

Really truly an amazing story and so cute bilbo in his little hobbit hole until an adventure

In my humble opinion, this book is beyond wonderful, adventurous, and exciting. But best of all was the narrator who gave life, who sang with the elves and whose voice rose and fell with the story of a most beloved book.

J.R.R. Tolkien is a giant of Twentieth Century literature and this is one of his best. It is masterfully narrated. Singing the songs added a nice touch. I encourage others to enjoy this masterpiece of the Recorded Books library.
