From Hobbit holes to dwarf kingdoms to goblin architecture that seems to be inspired by both Rube Goldberg and M.C. Escher (look them up,) this book has it. It may also help you tell which dwarf is which. Maybe.

The book is a very interesting book, it's jammed packed with exciting drama, fights. At first, I thought it was your typical adventure book, nothing too grand, but as the story progressed, my thoughts on it did too. Also the main protagonist, Bilbo Baggins is very relatable, since he's an average person living a normal and comfortable life, but as the story went on, he developed from a scaredy cat to a strong/intellectual warrior. I totally recommend this book looking for an adventure type book. Overall, I give this book a 9/10.

Everyone always seems to have really positive comments about The Hobbit by J. R. R Tolkien, but I actually didn't like it that much. Maybe it's just because it was written so long ago that I didn't understand the story too well. All I know is that it took me almost a whole year to finish this book, and I had to force myself to do so. Each chapter was incredibly boring, and I will never read any of them again.
The Hobbit is about Bilbo Baggins, an average Hobbit, ( a hobbit is a creature about half the height of a regular person, with huge feet and big stomachs ) who is whisked away from his comfortable hobbit- hole that he loves very much, by a wizard named Gandalf and a group of dwarves, to go on a long ( and boring ) journey to steal back a giant treasure from a very powerful dragon named Smaug the Magnificent.
This book is not fun to read. Nothing exciting happens and it's hard to pay attention to what you're reading because it's so incredibly bland and boring.
Plus, all the dwarves' names sound similar, so I never really could tell who was who.
I would recommend this book to someone who has a lot of free time and isn't looking for a very thrilling story that will keep them at the edge of their seats until the very end, but a four hundred page book with no exhilarating or nail- biting components at all.

I have started to read the Hobbit by myself and I am really enjoying it. The songs are really funny. It will take a while, but I will read all of it
