    Description

    This brand-new unabridged audiobook of J.R.R. Tolkien’s beloved The Hobbit will be coming to listeners everywhere this September, read by the BAFTA award-winning actor, director and author Andy Serkis. 

    Bilbo Baggins is a hobbit who enjoys a comfortable, unambitious life, rarely travelling further than the pantry of his hobbit-hole in Bag End. But his contentment is disturbed when the wizard Gandalf and a company of 13 dwarves arrive on his doorstep one day to whisk him away on a journey ‘there and back again’. They have a plot to raid the treasure hoard of Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous dragon....

    The prelude to The Lord of The Rings, The Hobbit has sold many millions of copies since its publication in 1937, establishing itself as one of the most influential books of the 20th century.

    ©1937 J. R. R. Tolkien (P)2020 HarperCollins Publishers Limited

    Commentaires

    "The Hobbit belongs to a very small class of books which have nothing in common save that each admits us to a world of its own. Its place is with Alice and The Wind in the Willows." (Times Literary Supplement)

    "One of the best loved characters in English fiction...a marvellous fantasy adventure." (Daily Mail)

    "Finely written saga of dwarves and elves, fearsome goblins and trolls...an exciting epic of travel, magical adventure, working up to a devastating climax." (The Observer)

    Amazing reading by Andy Serkis

    I just loved hearing The Hobbit. I've only read it several times in my own langage (french) and i wanted to hear it in English, to practice… I do not regret it ! Andy was amazing and i was so impatient to listen to the Gollum part, and i wasn't disappointed.

    The absolute best narration you could hope for.

    The absolute best narration you could hope for. Andy Serkis gives life to the legendary work of Tolkien. The voice acting, the singing, the rhythm. You get the lot.

    I want Serkis to record Lord Of The Rings also

    This recording of the hobbit is league’s ahead of any other recordings of the Hobbit or lord of the rings. I would by the lord of the rings read by Andy Serkis eaven if I had to pay for each individual part of the six parts the books are divided into.

    Serkis does Tolkien's legacy justice

    My first encounter with JRR Tolkien's The Hobbit came when I was around six years old, and my mum picked up a paperback copy from which she read parts of to me. I do admit I was probably a little too young to appreciate this, back then, but I did go on to reading the book on my own when I was about 11 or 12. Which is also when I plunged headlong into The Lord of the Rings and knew from that moment that I wanted to be a fantasy writer.

    I'm always somewhat baffled when people complain that The Hobbit is boring, but hey, there's no accounting for people's taste. But what I will say to those of you who didn't quite gel with the reading, do give the audiobook narrated by Andy Serkis a try. It's my firm belief that some fiction only truly comes alive as the spoken word, and in this case, The Hobbit is a prime example.
    Tolkien is a master of the third person omniscient, so often interrupts the main flow to give a little of his own opinion – and sometimes the references to things from his own time, like football, can be a bit jarring. This is especially the case considering that the conventions of present day fiction favour a limited first- or third-person point of view. So I'm guessing the 'narrator voice' of the author might be off-putting to some readers (though I do believe that they don't quite know how to articulate this, judging by the reviews out there – worth a laugh and an eye-roll if you're trawling to see the one-star reviews for The Hobbit.)

    But Andy Serkis as a narrator of this book surpasses himself. His minute details in characterisation, for everyone from Bilbo and Gandalf, to Smaug, and of course the Gollum we all know and love, are an absolute delight. This is the unabridged version of the book, so we're looking at plus minus 10 hours of entertainment, and I'm beginning to wonder if Peter Jackson shouldn't have just stuck to the plot instead of his mangling of the film adaption of the book. Because yes, there is enough content for three movies here, if you look hard enough.

    This is most certainly one of my audiobook highlights of the year, and I cannot recommend it enough. Serkis is an absolute treasure and he has without a doubt done justice to JRR Tolkien's legacy with his reading.

    Amazing storytelling by Andy Serkis!

    It was such a delight to listen to this reading with my children! Often we were in awe of how amazing the reader was! One of the best audio book readings I’ve heard!

    Marvellous Middle-Earth tale

    Deeply enjoyed the way Andy Serkis narrated; then again he WAS there himself. Gollum!

    One of the best books I've ever read. Andy Serkis is an amazing narrator; he was very energetic, and his singing was great. Highly recommend. 😃👏

    My God, the performance.

    I too, like many other reviewers, know this text intimately. And what a pleasure it was to experience it in this form with the expert performance of Andy Serkis. All the dialogue and songs, not no mention his cadence of speech and elocution are simply perfect. Christopher Lee was amazing in Children of Hurin but this one, I have to say, is on another level. I am in awe. A beautiful gift to all the fans. Rejoice.

    Perfect performance

    I wish I had the energy to back to all my previous book review and downgrade all the five stars for performance. This is a five star performance. A perfect performance.

    The book, of course, is great. The most childish of Tolkien's books, but still a great read/listen for an adult.

    What a splendid Adventure!

    The Hobbit remains one of my very favourite books of all time. My hat goes off to Andy Serkis who captures this adventure and all its participants marvellously. He gives each character a unique voice and accent, sometimes reminiscent of those in the films. He finds the right tone for the whole story, and I enjoyed the journey immensely.

    Fingers crossed he will read The Lord of the Rings next. Please, Audible, make that happen! 🖤

    Mr. Serkis can read the white pages to me any time

    Andy Serkis könnte mir auch aus dem Telefonbuch vorlesen und ich wäre fasziniert. Es ist unglaublich, was Mr. Serkis hier veranstaltet. Er imitiert z.B. die Stimmen von Ian McKellen (Gandalf), Richard Armitage (Thorin), Martin Freeman (Bilbo) und Lee Pace (Thranduil) so perfekt, dass die Figuren vor meinem geistigen Auge lebendig werden. Natürlich nicht zu vergessen, die Figur des Gollum, der Mr. Serkis selbst, sowohl in der HdR- als auch in der Hobbit-Filmtrilogie, in unnachahmlicher Weise Leben eingehaucht hat. Aber auch seine Art, die Geschichte als solches zu lesen, ist einfach toll. Ich kann mich den Rezensenten, die sich wünschen, dass Andy Serkis die HdR-Trilogie liest, vollumfänglich anschließen! Hoffentlich macht Audible es möglich.
    Dear Mr. Serkis, Thank you so much for this master piece. Listening to you, I had the time of my life. You are an absolutely amazing narrator. Please read the LotR-triology to us. Please, please, please!

    Mehr geht nicht!🙌🏽👏🏽

    Noch nie musste ich alles stehen und liegen lassen, um einen Schaupieler in der ganzen Vielfalt seiner Stimme und Seele zu genießen. Wie ein warmes, gut behandeltes Holz, fein geölt, schwingt Andys Stimme (ich muss ihn duzen) wie die Saiten einer Stradivari. Ich wusste nicht, dass ein Hörbuch so sein kann. Mega Champagner für die Ohren. Mehr geht nicht. Echt. Sag‘ ich doch.
    Applaus an den, der auf die Idee gekommen ist, dieses Multitalent und Gollum-VERKÖRPERER dieses Buch einlesen zu lassen.

    Extremely well read!

    Andy is a great actor, he actually changed his voice completely for every single character. And it resembles the movie. He also sang all the songs. He makes it very tense and interesting. And You can't hear him breathing, like other readers...
    Too bad he didn't finish the rest of LOTR. Would recommend it to anyone!
