it was amazing

I can't believe I hadn't read this before! I don't know how I missed it. It was an awesome adventure story, funny and interesting the whole way. I think I'm going to have to read the Fellowship series now, I'm pretty sure I haven't read that either, somehow. Also I might have to check out LotRO.

“They were frightfully angry. Quite apart from the stones no spider has ever liked being called Attercop, and Tomnoddy of course is insulting to anybody.”

J.R.R. Tolkien
“It was at this point that Bilbo stopped. Going on from there was the bravest thing he ever did. The tremendous things that happened afterward were as nothing compared to it. He fought the real battle in the tunnel alone, before he ever saw the vast danger that lay in wait.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit
