Like every other hobbit, Bilbo Baggins likes nothing better than a quiet evening in his snug hole in the ground, dining on a sumptuous dinner in front of a fire. But when a wandering wizard captivates him with tales of the unknown, Bilbo becomes restless. Soon he joins the wizard’s band of homeless dwarves in search of giant spiders, savage wolves, and other dangers. Bilbo quickly tires of the quest for adventure and longs for the security of his familiar home. But before he can return to his life of comfort, he must face the greatest threat of all—a treasure-troving dragon named Smaug.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
It’s a fantasy masterpiece for good reason: The Hobbit has something for everyone, from preteens to university professors. Hobbits are a short, furry-footed people who always prefer the comforts of home to exciting adventures. But that changes on the day that amiable homebody Bilbo Baggins joins a burly crew on their quest to slay a menacing dragon and embarks on a thrilling journey involving tangles with giant spiders and talking eagles. J.R.R. Tolkien’s world-building and storytelling are surprisingly fast-paced and his tone is charming and lyrical, and actor Rob Inglis captures both qualities with nimble grace.

Very interesting loved the narrator helped keep the story a lot
Overall the reading is good, there are moments namely musical ones that are pretty bad. The poor fella does try to sing but with no melody it’s pretty tough going, so tough, I found my self skipping ahead until the song ended.
You should let your kids read this book 👍👍👍good book!!!!!
