3.0 out of 5 stars Martin Shaw Narration of The Hobbit (Abridged), 19 Mar. 2002
This review is from: The Hobbit (Audio CD)
This audio version of The Hobbit tells the first tale of Bilbo's adventures with his trusted Dwarf companions and of course Gandalf. It tells the tale of their journey to gain wealth and treasure and all of the dangers they experience along the way. It more importantly tells how Bilbo comes across "The Ring" and its affects on him. From this the follow up story of The Lord of the Rings was eventually told (The three part unabridged versions are available on both tape and CD format, read by Rob Inglis)
This audio book is very well abridged, although there is an unabridged version narrated by Rob Inglis for those of you who would prefer the complete version, rather than this 6 hour shortened version.
Martin Shaw reads this tale well, but I do have to say that his voice does lack some enthusiasm in my opinion. I would much prefer to listen to Rob Inglis voice and his characterisations.
It is not a requirement, but I would recommend reading (or listening) to The Hobbit before going onto reading the Lord of the Rings.
