" I recently heard the audiobook version of The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien which was read by Andy Serkis. I must say, it was an absolute delight! The narration by Andy Serkis was truly outstanding. His voice is deep and comforting, perfect for a fantasy such as this one — it draws you in and makes you feel like you are right there with Bilbo on his journey through Middle-Earth. He manages to capture every nuance of the text, making it easy to follow along even if you don't know much about the storyline beforehand. And where would we be without Gollum's iconic voice? Serkis does an incredible job bringing him to life!
The plot of The Hobbit follows the adventures of Bilbo Baggins as he sets off on a quest with Gandalf and a company of Dwarves to reclaim their lost kingdom from the dragon Smaug. Along his travels, Bilbo encounters orcs, giant spiders, trolls, elves, goblins, and all sorts of creatures both dangerous and friendly (Shelob especially!). It's a thrilling journey full of excitement, danger and mystery that's sure to keep listeners enthralled until its very end.
Overall, I would highly recommend this audiobook for those who want an amazing listening experience with an unforgettable story. The Hobbit is definitely one that should be experienced through audio — especially when narrated by Andy Serkis! "
