THE GREAT MODERN CLASSIC AND PRELUDE TO THE LORD OF THE RINGS
Deep down here by the dark water lived old Gollum, a small slimy creature. I don’t know where he came from, nor who
or what he was. He was Gollum—as dark as darkness, except for two big round pale eyes in his thin face. He had a little
boat, and he rowed about quite quietly on the lake; for lake it was, wide and deep and deadly cold.
Whisked away from his comfortable, unambitious life in his hobbit-hole in Bag End 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.
This brand-new unabridged recording is narrated by the acclaimed actor, director and author, Andy Serkis.
Andy Serkis provides a brilliant and captivating narration of an absolute classic. His voices for characters are unique and wonderful and he, of course, includes his staple and trademark Gollum voice making the iconic character’s introduction that much more impactful. I cannot wait to listen to Andy narrate the LOTR books.
The Hobbit is amazing!!!
Andy Serkis is perfect for reading this book and I enjoy it a lot!
