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.

Ce que les critiques en disent

"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)

Justice for a classic

Andy Serkis does the most amazing job bringing The Hobbit to life. I have already purchased LOTR audiobooks from audible however if Andy Serkis were to narrate those books as well, I would be first in line to purchase them again and listen to them in his narration. Absolutely perfectly done.

Andy Serkis makes an old favourite come alive

I’ve always had a special place in my heart for this story. From Bag End to The Lonely Mountain and back again, Andy Serkis does a fantastic job bringing the page to life. Obviously, his voice work is phenomenal, but his narration is just as wonderful. If you love the story, don’t skip on this version. And if Andy ever finds himself getting bored, I wouldn’t mind seeing what he could do with The Lord of the Rings...

Wonderful to listen to

The narrator makes this beloved take come to life as of it is playing out in my office. I wish Me. Serkis had also given his time and immense talent to read The Lord of the Rings.

Absolutely Amazing

This reading by THE Andy Serkis was incredible. His control over his voice and ability to create different voices for every single character was wonderful. He perfectly captured the wonder of The Hobbit and helped bring you into every scene. His voice fit the role of narrator perfectly and I only hope he narrates more of Tolkien’s work in the future.

Magical

By far my favourite narration of any work of Tolkien. We all know the story of the Hobbit and in 2020 the book can indeed feel old-timey and dusty as you read it... however, Serkis not only brings a modern flavour, but takes it far beyond. What a fantastic reading from the 2nd director of the movies himself, the acting is sublime and his voices bring the old words to life in a way that Tolkien himself would be proud of. Serkis knows this book intimately, and you can tell from his reading, the flustered nature of Bilbo is a high point, his iconic voice of golum feels like coming home and his identifiable dwaves are all wonderful. The only thing I could hope– no, pray for, is a possibility of Serkis visiting the Lord of the Rings. fantastic. don't miss this audiobook.

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.

A match made in heaven

The Hobbit has always been a beloved story to me, but now it has gained a whole new dimension; a completely new way of experiencing it, as we get this narration that we've all been waiting for without even knowing it. Andy Serkis brings a whole cast of distinct voices to this audiobook, and the pacing and drama of the storytelling is impeccable. I highly recommend this audiobook to anyone who loves fantasy, the world of LotR, or fairytales in general. I hope with all my heart that we will soon get a new version of the Lord of the Rings, too - narrated by Andy Serkis. That would make this experience complete.
