Mith I've lost count of the number of times I've read this book! ANY DAY better than LOTR (cue the haters!).

Aw man, you made me all nostalgic now :) This is next up on my to-read list now :D

"Struck by lightning! Struck by lightning!" <3

"Struck..."


Oh, I was thinking about reading the LOTR series next. Their size has always intimidated me, which is why this relatively shorter looking book appealed to me :)
Also, the giant spider scene in it made me nostalgic about harry potter’s second part.
:D

Nabz28 I love this book and great review. I've almost finished it for the first time but I'm on Part 1. I was puzzled how Gandulf just suddenly appear in front of him seeking for an adventure. Why was Bilbo Baggins chosen to become a 'burglar' instead of others? Currently I'm on Chapter 8, Flies and Spiders. I had to really open my imagination on the book, so much description, not that I don't like it but it's just too much. I would sometimes get lost in my imagination and had to re-read it back. The way J. R. R. Tolkien described the surroundings in the book was just wow loved the part when Gandulf, Bilbo and the Dwarves met Beorn. The part when Gandulf was telling him about their quest and every 5 minutes or a whistle, 2 dwarves would come into his house.

The movie was good too but some parts were missing from the movie from the book. I hope the next movie will be much longer, includes the missing parts and finishes the story until the end. Still don't get it, Gandulf ask Bilbo to come on the quest with the Dwarves and along the way he's always missing or going to his other quest (Necromancer). So that means there's two quest, dealing with the necromancer and facing Smaug. Hopefully it will end well haha.
