Loved this audio book ever since I was little, and still get much enjoyment from it even into my twenties, I think this book is incredibly overlooked. It is a fantastic piece of Tolkien; if not his best short story. The narrator portrays the books very well, with a relaxing but engrossing tone.

When Tolkien writes stories, he writes them good! Let an excellent narrator, like Derek Jacobi, read it, and you have an exquisite tale. I'm sure you'll want to listen to this story again and again!
Farmer Ham of Giles, the hero of the story, knows how to fight giants and dragons... a definite must, before you're stamped by a giant and warmed by a dragon.

Would you consider the audio edition of Farmer Giles of Ham to be better than the print version?
It is an enjoyable listen that goes well with the print version.
Have you listened to any of Derek Jacobi’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Derek Jacobi is excellent once again. Children will be able to follow along easily and perhaps even take more of the story in as a result of his narration.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I did listen to it in one sitting as the book is full of Tolkien 's humour and is well narrated and easy to listen to.
Any additional comments?
Children and adults alike, should enjoy this Tolkien adventure with a deadly dragon, a dog who keeps crying help and a farmer who becomes a king.
