I so wanted to fall in love with this book, that unquenchable desire that's all encompassing. However, I suppose I fell in like. I enjoyed the adventures of the titular hobbit Bilbo Baggins but I didn't think it was as good as Lord of the Rings. Yes it had adventure, nail biting moments, drama and humour but there was no epic feel to the tale. By the end of the novel I should have felt like I'd been through the ringer but I didn't and that's why I don't feel I can award more than 3 stars.
