Description

The radio dramatisation of The Hobbit became a classic when it was first broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in 1968 and it continues to delight today.

Tolkien's famous saga, the prelude to the Lord of the Rings, has all the ingredients of fantasy and adventure: dwarves, elves, goblins and trolls, a fearsome dragon, a great wizard, a perilous quest, and a dramatic climax. At the centre is the unsuspecting hero Bilbo Baggins, a home-loving unambitious Hobbit who is suddenly thrust into the biggest, indeed the only adventure of his life.

Pleasantly surprised!

"the Hobbit" was my first "Dramatized" listen, and I found it to be quite enjoyable. I usually prefer to listen to unabridged books only, however, I desided to give this one a try, and I loved it. I can't wait until my daughter is old enough to have this played to her. I would strongly recomend this audio to families on road trips, and any fans of J.R.R. Tolkian.

Takes a little getting used to

It took me awhile to get used to "dramatised" and when I did, I decided I didn't like it. Don't get me wrong - it was done well, and was entertaining; but i found dramatization draining on my imagination. After awhile, I was overwhelmed with drama and couldn't keep up with the voices and images.

I dislike this style

I know I like this book because I’ve read it before, but trying to listen to this version was awful.
They were talking over each other and the music in the background was too loud.

Hard to make any sense of the story

Stopped after 30 min. My son and I had no idea who the characters were, where they were or what was happening. Bery little narration. The sounds are messy, volume is uneven and the dialogue is a collection of near gibberish overlapped with sounds and effects.

Would not recommend.

An Old Favourite

I was given this book to read as a child and have loved it ever since. (I'm now over 40). The style of the dramatisation is a little bit dated and I find the music grates a bit on my ear but it does add to the atmosphere. I have listened to it three times since I bought it this week! As with any abridgement, one can always be disappointed about what was left out and what was retained from the original book but the spirit of the story is still there. The actors are very wholehearted about the project. The book was aimed at children and I think they will love this although it does get a bit scary at times!

Wonderful Presentation of a Classic!

This was the first Tolkien story that I read, and I was captivated by it, long before I read the complete Lord of the Rings trilogy. This audio dramatization has become a classic in its own right, and I enjoy listening to it frequently. As a dramatization, I prefer it to a full-length audio presentation of the original. "The Hobbit," either in book or this audio format, is my favorite way to suggest an introduction to Tolkien to people who are unfamiliar with his work, or who say they don't like fantasy. This dramatization catches the spirit of the original and I highly recommend it.

Revisiting a favorite from my childhood.

What made the experience of listening to The Hobbit (Dramatised) the most enjoyable?

I first experienced this story on the radio in 1977, over NPR. They played it in half hour installments and my sister and I got to listen in my parents bedroom with a big bowl of popcorn. I loved the vivid mental images created by the actors readings... and the music is just as folksy and wonderful as I remembered. It will ALWAYS be my favorite way to experience "The Hobbit."

What did you like best about this story?

The characters voices are just as I imagined

Which scene was your favorite?

I LOVE Bilbo's scene with Smaug.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I like spacing it into 30 minute sections.

Any additional comments?

Get it. You won't regret it. BBC BRILLIANCE.

amazing

Listening to this version of "The Hobbit" really does give you a sense of how people read, and or thought about "The Hobbit" during the time it was recorded. It not only is interesting as a historical must-have for any LOTR fan, but they do a really upstanding job dramatizing it. This is the kind of thing I will keep on my external hard-drive no matter how many computers I go through.

great story, dramatization could be better

Therecare some parts that are too loud and the voices are kind of annoying from the very beginning, but the story is great, so it's worth listening to.

Hard to listen to

Altough I love the stories of Tolkien and have read the Lord of the Rings, the Silmarillion and the Hobiit several times, this edition of the Hobbit is really hard to listen to: too many voices and sounds, the story is hardly distinguishable between them. Maybe it is easier if your native tongue is English, but for me it didn't work and I stopped not much later in the first chapter.

Geniale Umsetzung eines genialen Buches

Der Hobbit ist dass Buch, dass ich mit Abstand am öftesten gelesen habe als Kind. Da ich es deshalb so wie so irgendwann auswendig konnte, habe ich mich schon sehr früh an die englische Version heran gewagt und war schon damals richtig begeistert davon!

Die Charaktere, vorallem Bilbo, sind exzellent getroffen und sprechen ein herliches Englisch - der Humor des Buches kommt hier eindeutig besser zur Geltung als im deutschen Pendant. Es wird sich noch genauer an die Vorlage gehalten und die mittelalterlich anmutende Musik erzeugt genau die richtige Stimmung.

Wer nicht so gut Englisch kann, bzw. die Geschichte noch nicht so genau kennt, wird sich jedoch womöglich schwer tun. Oft wird wild durcheinander geschrien und mehrere Akteure reden gleichzeitig (was ich ja persönlich gerade so reizvoll realistisch finde). Was mich als Kind nicht gestört hat, sich inzwischen aber als ein Manko des Hörspiels herausgestellt hat, sind die verzerrten Stimmen der Wesen von Mittelerde. Warge, Adler und Riesenspinnen zum Beispiel haben kaum erträgliche Sprechweisen und das gequäke geht einem früher oder später auf die Nerven.

Im Allgemeinen ist THE HOBBIT jedoch wirklich hörenswert (vorallem für die Menschen die ein schönes Englisch schätzen) und in höchstem Grade unterhaltsam! Diese Geschichte werden alle Abenteurer lieben - auch ohne jegliche Affinität zum Herrn der Ringe.
