Description

Smaug certainly looked fast asleep, when Bilbo peeped once more from the entrance. He was just about to step out onto the floor when he casught a sudden thin ray of red from under the drooping lid of Smaug's left eye. He was only pretending to sleep! He was watching the tunnel entrance!

Whisked from his comfortable hobbit-hole 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.

©1937, 1951, 1966, 1978 George Allen and Unwin (Publishers) Ltd. (P)1993 HarperCollins UK

ONLY 5 chapters

I really should have paid more attention but this is the ABRIDGED version of The Hobbit, I only realized this because of the number of chapters. I went back and looked at the description, it does not mention ANYWHERE in the description that this is the abridged version. Abridged is written in tiny print along the thumbnail of the title. I feel like audible should clearly mark abridged vs unabridged. The Hobbit is a rather short book to begin with, it didn’t really NEED an abridged copy.

abridged does not mean cut in half

I like the narrator and the story... it's just a shame that this book has been edited down 50% I wish I had noticed that this was the abridged version when buying :-( now I have to buy the regular copy just so I know everything that happens :-(

Do not buy this version buy the full version!

A thrilling tail brought beautifully to life

Martin Shaw is perfectly cast as the narrator for this abridged version of The Hobbit. He reads with great characterisation, giving each their own voice and personality - no easy feat with such a large ensemble cast to portray! I love that Bilbo has a West Country inspired accent (by no means the full Wurzel) which reveals and speaks to his home-loving nature and gentleness while not at all seeming dumb. Some may be disappointed that this is only an abridged version, but I can find no reason to fault it. Highly recommended, for the new listener to Tolkien's works, or for the seasoned fan looking to return to the Shire.

UNDECLARED ABRIDGED VERSION

Haven’t even read it, I don’t do abridged versions, I should be re-credited because I am going to have to get the unabridged version.

no

Any additional comments?

PLEASE DON'T SKIP SO MANY PARAGRAPHS! I WAS TRYING TO FOLLOW ON WITH MY COPY AND IT MADE IT NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE! NO WONDER IT WAS ONLY 6 HOURS COMPARED TO 9 HOURS OF MOVIE TIME! Otherwise a great reading! :)

A very enthused family of listeners

My children and I enjoyed this very much and would recommend it. It is read by one person rather than multiple readers, but this was not a problem, rather the narrator was excellent.

Fantastic Story

This is my first Audiobook, and I am currently on my fourth hour and I am absolutely loving it. I wish I could find another book that is as good as this one. I have looked around and can't seem to find a book that has a great adventure with diferent races like dwarfs etc,... I looked at the LOTR however when I listened to the sample that total put me off of Dramatised versions, the background music etc is terreble.

The Hobit is fantastic and I highly recommend it, it had a great adventure, many diferent races, and the nerrator just puts the cherry on the top.

great overall performance

enjoyed the reading, except the way he read the songs left a lot to be desired
