Recorded Books Offers New Edition of The Hobbit Read by Andy Serkis

Recorded Books is rolling out a new audiobook edition of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit that is read by the actor who portrayed Gollum in Peter Jackson’s film adaptations: Andy Serkis.

“I have such vivid memories of first reading The Hobbit, when I was on the bus going to school, aged about 9 or 10,” says Serkis. “It was the first ‘grown up’ book I remember reading, and I’d often miss my stop because I was so engaged in the thrust and power of its storytelling, the beautifully drawn characters, the majesty of the epic journey. To now narrate the audiobook version of this fantastical tale of Middle-earth and its inhabitants—and to bring them to life for Tolkien fans in the U.S. and Canada—is such a wonderful, full-circle opportunity!”

The audiobook is available for preorder now and will be released on Sept. 21, 2020, wherever audiobooks are sold.

For more information, read the press release.
