Hobbits, Rings and Magical Things

AdvantagesGreat in its own right and sets you up well for the follow up

Disadvantagesthe fact that you can't actually live in Middle Earth

"With all the hype that currently surrounds the big screen adaptation of Lord of the Rings, I would like to recommend the book that started the entire Middle Earth phenomenon, namely "The Hobbit." I believe this book can be overlooked in the grander scheme of things but it is a classic in its own right. The Hobbit was read to me when I was in primary school and I have never forgotten the sense of wonder experienced by everyone in the class as the story ..." Read review

An Unlikely Hero, And The Start Of An Epic

AdvantagesGreat Introduction To Middle Earth For Children And Adults Alike

DisadvantagesSome Characters Are Not As Well Developed As They Could Be

"...stretch my abilities. One of the first "adult" books that was given to me was The Hobbit*, which was one of my first forays into the realms of fantasy and a book that I still love and read regularly today. In fact I love this book so much there are three copies in the house, one an colour-illustrated hardback which was a special edition and bought for me along with The Lord of The Rings nearly fifteen years ago and is safely stored away until my children ..."

Great introduction into the world of Tolkien

AdvantagesWonderful story for all the family.

DisadvantagesMay not be suitable for very young children

"Millions of people around the world have read and enjoyed Tolkiens ‘The Hobbit’. In school, when I was just 11, we read a chapter of ‘The Hobbit’ weekly. I can honestly say that I actually could not wait to go to school on the day of the reading. The story is a fairytale in a foreign land revolving around a hobbit, twelve dwarves and a wizard. A hobbit is a small human like creature with furry feet that lives in a hole in ..." Read review

A timeless classic

AdvantagesWonderful book for all the family to enjoy.

DisadvantagesHas some depictions of war.

"...with large furry feet and the appetite of four humans). Well Bilbo, the unsuspecting Hobbit, is very surprised when a dozen dwarves and his old friend Gandalf start appearing at his humble home in the Shire. It transpires that the Dwarves have lost their ancestral home to a vicious dragon called Smaug and they require the services of a ‘thief’ to help them regain their rightful home. Gandalf, perhaps the mastermind behind the whole ..." Read review

Superstar Stories Smaller Sibling

AdvantagesSuperbly written it whisks you away to world of magic, adventure and strange beings. Keeps both young and old readers enthralled.

DisadvantagesMay, and I do mean may, suffer in comparison to Lord of the Rings, but then what doesn't?

"...rate, opinions on ‘Lord of the Rings – The Two Towers’ being published a day here on Ciao at the moment I felt it was time to take a few steps back. Back to a time before the first film, ‘The Fellowship of the Ring’, was released, before the books of LotR’s (yes they were books!!) were even in existence. Back to the time of The Hobbit and I'll give you a second rate opinion on that instead. Bilbo Baggins (the ‘hero’ of our tale) is happily living ..." Read review
