Beautiful work, loved it when first read it and often like to have a copy once again. Lent it out so many times only not to have it returned. I would love a copy to pass onto my Grand Daughter as a gift of reading to her and her children when she has her own.

The Hobbit and I go way back. I first read it the summer I turned 15, and have been reading it again and again ever since. It is not my favorite of Tolkien’s works; I prefer the more serious and, admittedly, ponderous Lord of the Rings. But this is where it all started, and it’s a wonderful tale of adventure. I read it most recently in anticipation of the premiere of Peter Jackson’s film version. Although I feel Jackson had to be the one to make this film, I will also confess to disappointment that he did not adhere more closely to his source material, which is perfect just the way it is.

My favorite story of all time. The one that began it all. No need to say more except that if you haven't read it yet, do yourself a favor and read The Hobbit!

The Hobbit is a glorious tale of adventure written for children but it can be enjoyed by everyone. With today’s shorter attention spans it might be boring to some people, or seem childish because of its intended audience, however The Hobbit makes the reader take a second look at taking risks and enjoying life. It speaks volumes about the corruption of riches while decrying war and its horrors. In spite of its flaws, I can’t help but love The Hobbit and recommend everyone read it. Try reading it out loud to someone, preferably a child, and the magic it contains will more readily reveal itself.

The Hobbit is an incredible piece of fiction with adventure, action and even humor. J.R.R. Tolkien writes with such style that the reader can't help but chuckle out loud. This is a must read and one that everyone needs to consider owning.
