Coerced into accompanying thirteen dwarves on an adventure to kill a dragon and grab some treasure, the home-loving Hobbit Bilbo Baggins eventually has the adventure of his life…Well, it’s taken me a while to get around to this one, hasn’t it? Most people read this as children, and I’m forty-six rig...

This has been a long time coming. My partner has been trying to get me to read The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings books since I met them, which is sixteen years ago, and every time I tried to read them, something always came up. Either school or family or life got in the way in some form or anothe...

The Hobbit has always been one of those books I've always thought I should read. I've been wanting to get into Tolkien's work for a long time before I caved and finally bought The Hobbit on the Kindle store. I should have gotten a paper copy. This is something I don't think about a lot or rather, I ...

Sin duda una gran obra del maestro J. R. R. Tolkien; quien tuvo esa forma de narrar única y muy creativa, que te engancha desde sus primeras páginas, creo que es una obra "obligada" para los que se quieren iniciar en este tipo de literatura (Fantasía Épica o Heroica) y contemporánea. Mejor que la pe...

I made all the teachers laugh in the prep room. I said I had 4000 kindle books, and I couldn't find anything to read. See, I wanted to read this. Thankfully, when Jackson released the Hobbit movies, this kindle version was on sale for under $2. I figured why not. I don't usually double buy unless y...

Bilbo Baggins is a hobbit who enjoys a comfortable and quiet life. His contentment is disturbed one day when the wizard, Gandalf, and the dwarves arrive to take him away on an adventure. Smaug certainly looked fast asleep, when Bilbo peeped once more from the entrance. He was just about to step out ...

I first read this book as a teenager, an amazing story, that gets better every time I read it. This time I read it with the Silmarillion Blues group and I learned so much. I don't know what more I can say except, if you haven't read this book, you need to read it. If you have only seen the movies,...

Synopsis: Bilbo Baggins, a comfort loving creature of the land of Middle-Earth, is recruited by the wizard Gandalf to help a group of dwarves defeat a dragon and recover their homeland/a bunch of treasure. Look if you haven't read this book, seen the movies, or have some idea whats going on you've...
AnHeC (I'm too fucking busy and vice versa)
I don’t think I can be friends with people who actively dislike The Hobbit. I really don’t. Just like with the ones dissing Terry Pratchet. Or BBC Sherlock. Those cases seem to scream ‘irreconcilable character differences’ (and we all know where does that lead). I find that what draws our a...
Philosophical Musings of a Book Nerd
Well, I have been saying for a while that it was the Lord of the Rings that kicked off the modern fantasy genre, but then I stumbled across an animated version of this story and I realised that I had been a little wrong. Granted both Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit are both by the same author, set ...
