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 unabridged recording is narrated by the acclaimed actor, director, and author, Andy Serkis.
