Review: The Hobbit Dramatized

Review: The Hobbit (Dramatized)

 IN A GLANCE: I Loved listening to this book. The performers were amazing and the story stupendous. J.R.R Tolkien always amazes me with his characters and words!

Title: The Hobbit Dramatized
Author: J.R.R Tolkien
Format: Audio Book
Buy this: Amazon * Audible

Written for J.R.R. Tolkiens own children, The Hobbit met with instant critical acclaim when first published more than sixty years ago. Now recognized as a timeless classic with sales of more than 40 million copies worldwide, this introduction to Bilbo Baggins, Gandalf the Wizard, and the spectacular world of Middle-earth tells of the adventures of a reluctant hero, a powerful and dangerous ring, and the cruel dragon Smaug the Magnificent.

 My Review: 

I adored listening to The Hobbit.  The performance of this audio book was amazingly fantastic.

The story of The Hobbit is full of adventure and great fantasy creatures! I loved all the dwarfs in this story and all their names had me cracking up as they are so close together in sound.  I also love the courage of each and everyone of the dwarfs.  Also Bilbo's courage in this story is amazing!

Bilbo is fantastic in this story.  I loved The Lord of the Rings and getting to hear where that story started was great.  Listening to The Hobbit, I got to hear exactly how Bilbo got the ring in the first place.  I loved that.  We also get to hear about all the adventures Bilbo went through.  His first adventure was great!!!  I also love Gandalf in this story just as much as I did in The Lord of the Rings.  He is hilarious!

My Recommendation: 

This book is great for any fantasy lover! If you loved The Lord of the Rings you will defiantly love this book.  I would say age range would have to be YA 12 and up!!!

My Rating: 

Audio: 20/20
Characters: 20/20
Creativity: 17/20
Plot: 20/20
Ending: 10/10
Performance: 10/10

97 out of 100 = 5 puppy rating!!!

Tolkien created a fabulous world that I love so much.  I love reading/listenign to all the details in his books! His words and characters are fabulous! I loved The Hobbit!
