With these words we are introduced to Middle Earth. The Hobbit is a timeless classic, which is a tale of Bilbo Baggins, the wizard Gandalf, Gollum, and the spectacular world of Middle-earth recounts of the adventures of a reluctant hero, a powerful and dangerous ring, and the cruel dragon Smaug the Magnificent.
This book was written in 1937 and even today it is a best seller all over the world. The way Tolkien narrates the story you will know he is a master of his trade right away from the first page. This book started it all, the Lord of the rings, Simarillion, Beren and Luthien, Children of Hurin and the multi-million dollar industry. But at it's heart this is a simple children's story which Tolkien wrote for his own children and that's why it works.
Attaching some pics for your benefit. Hope this review was helpful to you. Thanks for reading.
As always, Amazon is impeccable, on time delivery in perfect mint condition. After watching Matthew Crawley die and reading of Sherlock's death in a fanfic. I thought I wouldn't be happy again. But Amazon made me happy.
Also i generally smell the pages whenever i get a new book (Come on! We do) but i didn't like the smell of it much, actually its bad. Dont smell it :P
Now I can't wait to begin this journey.......
