it was amazing
Read from August 30 to September 05, 2012

It had been about 10 years since I last read The Hobbit, so I thought I'd give it another go. I am once again amazed and enthralled by this lovely story. I remembered it being enjoyable, but the nobility and strength and development of Bilbo is profound. Tolkien wrote heroes better than anyone. His heroes were flawed without being evil. They were weak without being sniveling or conniving. He truly mastered the art of virtue through story like no one else.

Matt I'm just finishing this up again as well. Great minds. Amazing book

Luke Anderson I just finished this last month. I had never read it before and enjoyed it immensely. Tolkien is seriously incredible at weaving a tale.
