Read in May, 2004

This is the book that probably gave birth to the whole fantasy genre. It's more of a fun-filled adventure littered with humour and interesting situations when compared to the very serious and epic the Lord of the Rings trilogy. An entertaining read in its own right. Just try not to compare its overall tone with that of the Lord of the Rings.
