The Hobbit

Last night, I finally finished reading “The Hobbit” by J.R.R Tolkien, the tale of Bilbo Baggins and his greatest adventure. And what a read that was.

I have to thank my dear friend Saqf again for giving me this amazing book and encouraging me to read it right away. You rock man!

I totally enjoyed every bit of it. My imagination ran wild; middle earth was recreated in my brain with every tiny detail; I took the trip with Bilbo, the hobbit, Gandalf and their dwarve friends over and under hills, through forests, across rivers and all over middle earth.
At times I even was so sucked into the story, I felt like I was living the role of the hobbit.

The book is magnificently written, Tolkien’s style is just awesome, and at times it feels less like fantasy and more like myth or maybe even ancient history; it’s as if all this did happen a long time ago when the world was full of hobbits, elves, dwarves, goblins, dragons and more.

I totally wish Peter Jackson goes on to make a movie out of this book too.
It’d be one hell of a cinematic experience, I’m sure.

I totally recommend reading this book.
It’s simply beautifully amazing.
