A wonderful, witty adventure - great for new readers. I had a blast getting acquainted with characters this modern culture knows so well in the very tale in which they were conceived. Tolkien has a truly beautiful mind, and though The Hobbit didn't grip me like I'd hoped it would, I cannot deny the world of Middle Earth is a truly fascinating and inventive one. I look forward to completing all the tales of that fantastic world.
