The Hobbit - Audiobook

Recently listened. Short overview.

Mr Bilbo Baggins is a Hobbit, a small size humanoid creature, an inhabitant of Middle Earth's Shire. Hobbits are known for their hairy feet, their favour of good meals, their home, and their quiet life.

Bilbo's quiet life is interrupted when Gandalf the Wizard offers him a job as a member of a party of Dwarves, on their quest to reclaim their kingdom of Erebor, deep beneath in the Lonely Mountain, which is now under the occupation of Smaug, a fierce and evil red dragon.

Along the journey, Bilbo meets Elves and Men, flies on the back of Eagles and fights with giant spiders, goblins and wargs. He becomes the owner of a strange artefact that will change his life forever.

The classic prequel to the "Lord of the Rings" saga narrated by Andy "voice of Gollum" Serkis. Most likely though, you will think that a full cast of voice actors are participating in the audiobook... they don't. All you hear is only Andy Serkis!
