This is going to be the second book review on this blog.
This one is going to be on The Hobbit. Enjoy!!
The Hobbit is a book written by J.R.R. Tolkien and is divided into three parts: An Unexpected Journey, The Desolation of Smaug and The Battle of the Five Armies. This book is an award winning classic work of fiction.
The description: When Bilbo Baggins, a hobbit, turns fifty, the wizard Gandalf, accompanied by thirteen other dwarfs, lead by Thorin Oakenshield, appear on his doorstep to take him with them on their journey to hunt and raid the treasure of Smaug the Magnificent, a dragon who killed Thorin's father and grandfather and stole a lot of treasure. Bilbo was chosen as the burglar. But there are problems... They soon learn that an army of goblins and wargs(The wild wolves of the west) are following. Read through this exciting tale and you shall be transported to the wonderful world of Middle Earth!!

Recommendations: If you wish to have a taste of Old English(with words like ere, whither etc), then this is the right book for you. However, I would not recommend it to someone who likes comedy. Also if you're a fantasy lover, this is just the right thing for you.
Personal punch: I read this book when I was ten years old and I really liked its fluent language which also pushed me to reading The Lord of the Rings, the sequel, to this book(Also note that The Lord of the Rings may not be so simple to understand without reading The Hobbit first).
I also loved the characters, such as Bilbo for his timidness, yet thoughtful, Thorin for his occasional arrogance and long speeches, and Gandalf for his wisdom and mysteriousness.
That’s it for the book review of The Hobbit. Enjoy reading!
