Book Description
This brand-new unabridged audiobook of J.R.R. TolkienΓÇÖs beloved The Hobbit will
be coming to listeners everywhere this September, read by the BAFTA award-
winning actor, director and author Andy Serkis.  Bilbo Baggins is a hobbit who
enjoys a comfortable, unambitious life, rarely travelling further than the
pantry of his hobbit-hole in Bag End. But his contentment is disturbed when the
wizard Gandalf and a company of 13 dwarves arrive on his doorstep one day to
whisk him away on a journey ΓÇÿthere and back againΓÇÖ. They have a plot to raid
the treasure hoard of Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous
dragon.... The prelude to The Lord of The Rings, The Hobbit has sold many
millions of copies since its publication in 1937, establishing itself as one of
the most influential books of the 20th century.
