'The Hobbit', Audio Book- Part I of III

This is JRR Tolkien’s ‘The Hobbit’. A classic on so many levels methinks^_^ This reading of the book by Nicol Williamson is an abridged version, meaning of course that it is not the entire book word for word. Anywho, I put some pictures in with the vid, though they’re not in sync with the story. That’s what your imagination is for.. O_o And if ye’re anything like me, ye’ll know that reading a book like The Hobbit, or LOTR & using your imagination to see the world, to create those memorable feelings, is immeasurably more satisfying than watching any movie. Not dissing the LOTR movies here peoples, I quite enjoy the.. first one, but they’re just movies with no-where near the feeling of the books. That being said, I like perrty pictures too & so I put some in here just because. Suggestion: Forget the pictures, have a quiet room, close yours eyes, sit back & listen. With any luck it’s a rainy day. I always seemed to love reading LOTR & The Hobbit on rainy days..

    They could do it so the extra butter runs off the bread so there isn’t too much butter.

  6.   NASAgeek321 Says:

    I do it butter side up but I flip when I eat it so it’s touches the tongue. Problem solved.

  7.   mjhockey12 Says:

    Watching this as a child it had a completely deferent meaning, studied the Cold War today and it made me think of the movie

  8.   93Xarxes Says:

    Personally I like to butter my bread and then fold it in half to eat it :)

  9.   Jokernui Says:

    This brings up the question. Which side of the bread is the bottom or top?

  10.   magicalgirl32 Says:

    Maybe someday, Universal Studios and Dreamworks Pictures will make a CGI film based on the Dr Seuss book.

    Ever notice how in the beginning, the grandfather is talking to his grandson about what happened a LONG time ago? But at the end, that “long time ago” turned into what was recently happening, so it’s not a “back then” story anymore like it was in the beginning.

    Biggest blooper in history.

    This is really freaky

  15.   syncmonism Says:

    The butter doesn’t fall off… funny enough I find it works better. The butter lines up with your tongue instead of the roof of your mouth :)

    This, Grinch Night, and the Hoober Bloob Highway have the best songs.

  17.   snowboarddmonkey1 Says:

    when i was a child, i was so upset with the ending and hoped desperately for a sequel, but now that im 21, i get where he was going with the story, thats why i think dr. seuss is for any age

  18.   Obiwancolenobi Says:

    Satire written during the Cold War era. Red Scare and all that nonsense.

  19.   AlexReynard Says:

    They would never have the balls to give it such a chilling, effective ending.

  20.   john hincapie Says:

    i hope they make this into a cgi movie

  21.   AndyG94 Says:

    Why not in both sides??

  22.   AndyG94 Says:

    Well. yeah, but that way the butter touches your tongue first…I think….

  23.   savkos101 Says:

    We watched this in class today. Once again, Dr. Seuss hits the nail right on the head.

  25.   Andy Slaughter Says:

    I find thus one of most interesting stories of Dr. Seuss. Just the fact we have two communities, fighting and arguing over one meaningless, idiotic reason.

  26.   ThrobnWood Says:

    :D You just made me think of the Robin Hood scene in Blackadder Back & Forth. Check it out if ye have not seen it, it’s on YT.

  35.   Thegreatleone Says:

  36.   P.J. Leonard Says:

    Guys, I’m REALLY sorry for posting this kinda thing (I’m no fan of this either), but this is relevant to this video: I write my own books and I’ve been trying to get my channel off the ground. It’s me reading audiobook-style. If you fancy some light, original stories to listen to I’d really appreciate the support.
    Thanks for hearing me out, and apologies for the unsolicited advertising.

  37.   stonerboyno1 Says:

    or both lol

  38.   ThrobnWood Says:

    Or possibly Robin Hood…

  39.   juangutierrezArt Says:

    I think he means it sounds like Throbbin Wood. Wood, another name for penis.

  40.   Varjokani Says:

    So? Because he isn’t in the worst possible situation he can be as a human that means hes not allowed to wish for better?
