    There are some days when I actually think that the humble Hobbit is superior to it s bohemoth brother,The Lord of the RingsIt s a much tighter story, and Bilbo is a muchappeal 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

    What makes The Hobbit such a seminal work in the fantasy genre Is it the nine hours of over budget, sensorially explosive movies by Peter Jackson Nope Is it a complex tale of multiple human kingdoms slaughtering each other for an Iron Throne with buckets of blood and guts and plenty of sex Nope Is it simply wonderful writing As simple and boring as that Does that mean that I was incredibly disappointed in the movie adaptation

    I probably won t write a full review here, as this is just a reread for me, but I found this just as enchanting as the first time I read it While I still like this one only SLIGHTLY less than The Lord of the Rings, I m glad I took the opportunity to read this first before diving into a reread of LOTR this year When I first read Tolkien s books about 15 years ago I didn t experience The Hobbit until I finished LOTR, so it gave me the feeling of being able to read
