The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien is a unique book that emerges from a delightful world; Middle Earth. The Hobbit is the prelude to infamous Lord of the Rings Trilogy...most authors begin with a prologue, but Tolkien went the extra mile and made the prelude a book. Wow. This book leads you into the land of elves, dwarves, humans, wizards, and (duh) hobbits (in case you didn't know are short, un-adventerous people with hairy feet.) The main character, Bilbo Baggins really doesn't care about anything outside of his hobbit world, The Shire. Yet, he is still pulled into an adventure. Bilbo's dream was to be a nice, normal hobbit, not trouping around on a most unseemly adventure! Or, worse still, to help stinky dwarves! All Ages in appropiatness, but it is a hard read...10/10!!!
Now a major motion picture (dunno why movies are called that)!
Review on the movie (special case)- REALLY! A three hour movie, and doesn't even reach the climax! You have got to be kidding me! OK, rant over. I loved it...
The main character in the Lord of the Rings Trilogy is Bilbo's nephew (?) Frodo Baggins. So that's how the books tie together.
Sorry this review has been such a ramble. :)
