The Hobbit

I have really enjoyed reading The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien. The writing style took me a bit to get used to and once I did it made it more enjoyable. The is a wonderful adventure read ,with man-eating spiders ,the goblin fight and of course the dragon's lair, and yet having to go through that Gandolf and the 9 dwarves were strong to handle it. Tolkien , through his writing gets you to like the characters more and allows you to expereince what they do as he pulls you in to the story wanting more at every page! I do recommend this book it you haven't already had the visit with them, go out and do so. It was well worth it.

Book Review

Bilbo Baggins was a Hobbit who wanted to be left alone in quiet comfort.But the wizard Gandolf came along with a band of homeless dwarves. Soon Bilbo was drawn into their quests , facing evil orcs, savage wolves , giant spiders and worse, unknown dangers. Finally , it was Bilbo alone and unaided who had to confront the great Dragon Smaug. the terror of the entire countryside...

  1. I loved the Hobbit! Was never crazy about the rest of the books, though I did read them, giving in to peer pressure. I <3 Bilbo Baggins!
