The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien
Release date: January, 2012 (New edition)
Written for J.R.R. Tolkien’s own children, The Hobbit met with instant critical acclaim when it was first published in 1937. Now recognized as a timeless classic, this introduction to the hobbit Bilbo Baggins, the wizard Gandalf, Gollum, and the spectacular world of Middle-earth recounts of the adventures of a reluctant hero, a powerful and dangerous ring, and the cruel dragon Smaug the Magnificent.
The Hobbit is a incredible read! Incredible! After watching the trailer of the Hobbit I needed to read the book first before I saw the movie & OMG I’m so glad I did, because I loved it. Even though the characters lacked depth, I thought they were fantastic. The thing I loved the most were the adventures. They were fun, scary and delightful. The Hobbit is an unforgettable read, that I want to share with everyone I know. I cannot wait to watch this movie & reread The Hobbit again.

What can I say about this book? There is so much going on and I do not want to give away anything. The first couple of pages I read in the train and I seriously could not stop reading. It was so good. The main characters Stewart and Layla are an incredible team. They both were teachers in the living world and I liked that. Yay, teachers! Unfortunately their lives ended well, tragically. I really liked the flashbacks. I also liked the plot. It was descriptive, fast paced and well researched. All in all, I liked it.
