Audio Book Summary

THE GREAT MODERN CLASSIC AND PRELUDE TO THE LORD OF THE RINGS Deep down here by the dark water lived old Gollum, a small slimy creature. I don't know where he came from, nor who or what he was. He was Gollum-as dark as darkness, except for two big round pale eyes in his thin face. He had a little boat, and he rowed about quite quietly on the lake; for lake it was, wide and deep and deadly cold. Whisked away from his comfortable, unambitious life in his hobbit-hole in Bag End by Gandalf the wizard and a band of dwarves, Bilbo Baggins finds himself caught up in a plot to raid the treasure hoard of Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous dragon. This brand-new unabridged recording is narrated by the acclaimed actor, director and author, Andy Serkis.

    I was completely unfamiliar with Tolkien until listening to this book. The story of The Hobbit is exciting, funny, and heart-warming. I wanted an unabridged version and was sold when I saw Andy Serkis listed as narrator. He does an incredible job bringing all the characters to life! I am looking forward to continuing into his narration of The Lord of the Rings Trilogy. Listen to this version, you won't be disappointed!

    The narrator is perfectly creepy and dramatic. I imagine JRR Tolkien told his son's the story just like this author reads it! Perfection!
