This audio adaptation... [In reply to] Can't Post

...sounds to be about as close to a "literal adaptation" as is possible. It's a given already that GDT isn't making a literal adaptation though (and I wouldn't expect him too), but that means he has more leeway to make The Hobbit fit the medium instead of more or less reading the book to a camera.

I haven't heard the audio adaptation, but from what you've mentioned it sounds more like a reading than an adaptation. That's fine, but it makes it hard to compare to a film adaptation.

Please correct me if I've misinterpreted what you've said about the audio adaptation. Smile
