The Hobbit - J.R.R. Tolkien
The Hobbit is a whimsical fantasy tale about the soon-to-be adventures of a hobbit by the name of Bilbo Baggins. He’s lead a quiet life so far, and likes to stay in his home, his lovely hobbit hole. He likes to keep it that way. All that changes when the great wizard Gandalf comes to visit him, wishing to involve him in an ‘adventure’. Just when he thinks he can get away from such things, thirteen dwarves show up at his doorstep. Did I mention he doesn’t particularly enjoy unwanted visitors, sharing food, or being busy?
To find out what happens in this classic tale, a prequel to “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy, read it!
I give this book three and one half stars! It was a fun book, didn’t take too much thought. It’s kind of hard to get through for some people or kind of slow because of the old English and all that, but it’s a classic and that’s what you get, you should really kind of expect it, but I really do recommend this book.
