Book Review – The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien

All of the opinions on this book are my own. I am not trying to force a certain thought on people, just expressing how I feel about it.

“Do you wish me a good morning, or mean that it is a good morning whether I want it or not; or that you feel good this morning; or that it is a morning to be good on?”

Synopsis:In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort.

I decided to pick this book up before I’m going to read The LOTR trilogy somewhere in the future. I am already planning to read a lot of series, so that’s gonna have to wait. I’ve seen all the movies, and I absolutely loved them. The books couldn’t stay behind, even though I like to read the books first and then watch the movie.

Well, what is there to say about The Hobbit? It’s everything I expected from it. An amazing, adventurous journey told in an extremely likable way. The story starts in Bilbo Baggins his home, where he lives quietly and has nothing to worry about. He then gets send on an adventure to get to Smaug. The whole journey is one full of different creatures, good times and bad times, and it sucks you into the world of middle-earth.

The story doesn’t get weak or boring, because every chapter a new thing happens, and you want to know what is waiting for the dwarves and the hobbit next. The descriptions of J.R.R. Tolkien are written beautifully and brings me the atmosphere of the story. I love how he limits his writing to that relevant to the story, as he tells you for example that the business of Gandalf is not relevant and needed to know in the story.

There is one little thing that I didn’t like about the book: the spiders! I have quite an imaginative mind and if there’s one thing I hate and am terrified of, it’s spiders. I looked the other way when watching the movie, haha!

I gave this book 4/5 stars. I love this kind of adventurous books.
