My first Tolkien novel was The Lord of the Rings but I just couldn’t finish the really long first sentence with so many descriptive words that made my head spin a little. So when a friend of mine suggested that I read this I was sceptical. It did finally get around to reading it after seeing the first Hobbit movie and can I just say that it was amazing.
The novel was bursting with action and Tolkien created a fantasyland that had me drooling to be part of. There were dragons, elves, hobbits and more. Bilbo’s character was fabulous, he goes on an adventure with a bunch of dwarves as the role of a burglar. There were some high moments and low of course but during this adventure Bilbo somehow keeps saving everyone from danger and eventually leads the group to the treasure they seek.
This is a great book full of humour, adventure, action and a classic of its kind.
