The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien

The Hobbit (Middle-Earth Universe)The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This was read mostly out of obligation, while I liked the story and all, I can’t help but feel no sympathy for hobbits.

My neighbor first introduced me to J.R.R. Tolkien‘s writing- I wanted to read Lord of The Rings, but he insisted (and with good reason) that in order to understand everything better I had to read The Hobbit first (or he wouldn’t lend me LOTR… ) And so I did.

The story and writing are excellent and it certainly cleared up questions I would’ve had reading LOTR without any background, but I felt little sympathy for the characters, so it doesn’t get more than three stars.

One thought on “The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien

  1. I couldn’t agree more about this one. Not the strongest. Doesn’t even compare to the glory of LOTR. Thanks for sharing the great review!
