During my childhood, Zimatar, a radio drama was very popular. Before classes start every morning, children would tell and retell the story to one another. Expounding how wonderful yesterday's episode was. Those were the days...

This edition of The Hobbit brought me back to my youth. It was alive, fun and very entertaining. Narrated simultaneously by both Bilbo and The Tale Bearer. When I say simultaneously, what I mean is that they sometimes talk both at the same time, which was really funny making me laugh out loud while walking.

Listening to the whole adventure is twice as exciting and suspenseful. Everything seems to be real especially the fight scenes/part. Mostly I love it when the dwarfs and elves were singing. It was very rewarding every time they put a tune to the words I once only read.

Amazing thing, too, is that Andy Serkis, who gave voice to Sméagol to Jackson's LOTR trilogy, have a very similar voice to Wolfe Morris of the BBC edition.

I totally love and enjoyed this edition. Hope you guys consider trying it.

Emir Never I'm currently reading this. I'm impressed by how seemingly effortless J.R.R Tolkien writes (This is my first Tolkien read.).

To adventures!


Louize Happy reading, Emir!
