    Some books are almost impossible to review If a book is bad, how easily can we dwell on its flaws But if the book is good, how do you give any recommendation that is equal the book Unless you are an author of equal worth to the one whose work you review, what powers of prose and observation are you likely to have to fitly adorn the work The Hobbit is at one level simply a charming adventure story, perhaps one of the most charming and most adventurous ever told There, see how simple that was If you haven t read it, you should, because it is quite enjoyable At some level, there is little to say Enjoy the story as the simple entertainment it was meant to be Read it to your children and luxuriate in the excitement and joy that shines from their faces That s enough.But if it was only simple entertainment, I do not think that it would be anything than just a good book Instead, this simple children s story resonates and fascinates It teases and hints at something larger and grander, and it instructs and lec...

    In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Bilbo Baggins, living comfortably in his hobbit hole in Bag End, finds himself on the wrong end of an adventure.Gandalf the Grey has come recruiting for a burglar willing to raid the home of Smaug a dragon whose taken over the ancestral home of the dwarves.These dwarves, who number thirteen, are deeply suspicious and are unwilling to proceed unless their number is rounded up Evil is afoot and they refuse to ignore common sense aka superstition.Gandalf soon finds that persuading Bilbo ends up a quest in and of itself I am looking for someone to share in an adventureit s very difficult to find anyone I should think so in these parts We are plain quiet folk and have no use for adventures Nasty disturbing uncomfortable things Make you late for dinner Reluctantly very reluctantly , Bilbo joins on this journeyand soon finds out that quests are not very friendly to hobbits Is it nice, my preciousss Is it juicy Is it scrumptiously crunchable And yet,...

    Dear Tolkien fans please don t leave a comment if you re going to spew hatred I ll just delete it I m glad you enjoy Tolkien s work, but I am actually allowed to feel this way, no matter how scandalous you find that idea Thank you To be fair, it really is a cool story Mr Tolkien s imagination is endless and I respect him immensely for that To be able to conjure a whole new, magical world and all these creatures in it. absolutely amazing But it is also a very long winded story and I found myself struggling to get the job done Reading is not supposed to be a job it s supposed to be fun and relaxing For me, The Hobbit was not an engaging story I was distracted constantly and kept missing paragraphs The story in itself is pretty great, but the way it is told makes the magic disappear I am not quite sure how to explain ...

    In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit Books exist in time and place and our experience of them is affected by the specific time and place in which we encounter them Sometimes an uplifting or inspiring book can change the path of a life that has wandered onto a wrong course Sometimes a book, discovered early on, can form part of the foundation of who we are Or, discovered late, can offer insight into the journey we have taken to date Sometimes a book is just a book But not The Hobbit Not for me In January, 2013, I pulled out my forty year old copy in anticipation of seeing the recently released Peter Jackson film It is a substantial book, heavy, not only with its inherent mass, but for the weight of associations, the sediment of time The book itself is a special hard cover edition published in 1973, leather bound, in a slipcase, the booty of new love from that era The book, while victim to some internal binding cracks aren t we all is still in decent shape, unlike that long vanquished relationship Not su...

    There are some days when I actually think that the humble Hobbit is superior to it s bohemoth brother, The Lord of the Rings It s a much tighter story, and Bilbo is a much appeal character than is Frodo I also just love this poem, from The HobbitFar over the misty mountains coldTo dungeons deep and caverns oldWe must away ere break of dayTo seek the pale enchanted gold.The dwarves of yore made mighty spells,While hammers fell like ringing bellsIn places deep, where dark things sleep,In hollow halls beneath the fells.For ancient king and elvish lordThere many a gleaming golden hoardThey shaped and wrought, and light they caughtTo hide in gems on hilt of sword.On silver necklaces they strungThe flowering stars, on crowns they hungThe dragon fire, in twisted wireThey meshed the light of moon and sun.Far over the misty mountains coldTo dungeons deep and caverns oldWe must away, ere break of day,To claim our long forgotten gold.Goblets they carved there for themselvesAnd harps of gold where no man delvesThere lay they long, and many a songWas sung unheard by men or elves.The pines were roaring on the height,The winds were moaning in the night.The fire was red, it flaming spread The trees like torches blazed with light.The bells were ringing in the daleAnd men looked up with f...

    From a hole in the ground came one of my favorite characters of all time, the very reluctant and unassuming hero, Bilbo Baggins As a child, The Hobbit sparked my young imagination, causing wonderful daydreams and horrible nightmares As a teen, the book made me want to become a writer of fantastical talesor go shoeless, live in a hole and smoke a pipe As an adult, Tolkien s novel maintains within me a link to my childhood, safekeeping cherished memories and evoking everlasting emotions The troubles with trolls, those slinking spiders, the finding of treasure, cave exploration, riddles in the darkit all added up in me a love for adventure I would make many an ornate wooden sword in my father s basement workshop, because of Sting Funny I didn t take to wearing rings thoughBeing pint sized, Mr Baggins makes the perfect magnetic character for a young person He is about a child s size, yet he is mature Similar, yet something to aspire to His diminutive stature made his implausible escapes and victories that much satisfying Nothing bores me than muscle bound killing machines wielding swords the size of windmill blades I have read this fantastic tale a number of times, watched the 70s cartoon movie version countless times and was c...

    To call this the epitome in which all high fantasy should be judged does not quite suffice this is simply one of the best books that has ever been written or will ever be written The Hobbit defines the high fantasy genre along with its sequel, of course, and has been an inspiration to countless authors and readers alike Tolkien, quite literally, kick started a genre that would eventually capture the hearts of thousands of people He changed the literary world He made fantasy real The best fantasy universe ever createdMiddle Earth is undoubtedly the best fantasy universe created It is the most original and richly devised It is very hard for fantasy authors not to borrow elements from Tolkien He set the definition with his wonderful world Tolkien s references to modern day are also very amusing and almost unnoticeable in the brilliant narrative, but a perceptive reader will notice the whimsical contrasts he has drawn between his world and the real world The sheer depth of Tolkien s imagination is really unmeasurable I wonder what other ideas for books he may have h...
