Bookshelf Tour #16 // The Hobbit – J.R.R. Tolkien

The Hobbit

The Hobbit is a tale of high adventure, undertaken by a company of dwarves in search of dragon-guarded gold. A reluctant partner in this perilous quest is Bilbo Baggins, a comfort-loving unambitious hobbit, who surprises even himself by his resourcefulness and skill as a burglar. Encounters with trolls, goblins, dwarves, elves and giant spiders, conversations with the dragon, Smaug, and a rather unwilling presence at the Battle of Five Armies are just some of the adventures that befall Bilbo. Bilbo Baggins has taken his place among the ranks of the immortals of children’s fiction. Written by Professor Tolkien for his own children, The Hobbit met with instant critical acclaim when published.

Have I mentioned before how much I love Middle-Earth? I don’t think so. Just let me tell you I love the Middle-Earth Universe. I saw the first Lord of the ring movie many many years ago and I freaking loved them. So my parents got me the box-set for christmas.

And then the year after I bought myself The Hobbit. I loved to go back to Middle-Earth and go on yet another adventure. Tolkien is (well was I guess) such an amazing storyteller and I can’t wait to re-read my favourite books in English.
