is a normal hobbit, only wanted is a peaceful life and a home loving type. But one day when Gandalf
to host a party for Thorin
and the gang, he was ridiculed and forced to join the team to explore the land within the imagination of Tolkien
, the band and the reader met new faces from orcs, eagles, and other mystical creature that fought within stories by stories. Imaginative Tolkien
once again made his famous children's book of all time.
If I'm a little bit younger, I may love and treasured this book like the other readers. I heard a lot of praises and one of my friends love Tolkien
that he collected most of his works in hardbound, not to mention his Stephen King
first edition hardbound copies. So I read it because of him and some of my friends in the other group, and I'm glad I did! It was a fun read and I can feel the songs still tingling on my ear. Come, my jolly hobbit!
What are hobbits or holbytlan (hole-dweller) in Old English anyway? Hobbits are small creature created by Tolkien
. They are usually very shy creatures, but are nevertheless capable of great courage and amazing feats under the proper circumstances. For me they are just cute little stuff toy that you want to give to your friend or girlfriend, seriously I fetish them for some reason. For what reason Tolkien
created this small creature, he succeed to make them to be loved by humans. To whoever it signify, the hole dwellers will always be those shy type heroes or maybe not.
I enjoyed reading the book. He also use ruin symbols which I'm currently studying because of its power to decode the future, kidding, I mean to tell the future. Somehow, the letters are unique but not quite used in the context itself. It was just introduced through the map and the clue to where the dragon lived. I'm still expecting more from it since they already shoot a movie adaptation and I can't wait to watch it. God, seriously, for 18 years of existence I never tried to watch the Lord of the Rings
series but I'll promise to interfere my reading after I read the whole book just to watch it.The Hobbit
was also written in a simple and in friendly way. Although most of you can determine who those characters saying, for me, I find it very difficult to identify them except for Bilbo
. I have to back read a little bit and read it again but I never thought that the book put me to sleep and dreamed of A Walk to Remember
. I know there is no connection between the said movie and the book but what I want to say is that the book is very magical. It digs the unconscious part of the person not like the books I read for awhile.
If people ask me why I gave this book a four and I really enjoyed it, well, that's because the events happened too fast that I can't feel the whole action and so on. Hey, I don't mean because I read a lot of pocketbooks lately, that's the worst answer you can conclude! But at least, all the time I spent is worth it! I'm interested in reading the other series, but today, I have to play with my new friend, Mr. Hobbit. Tra-la-la-la-la!
