This is the book that taught me not to read the different parts of a series in different languages. I read this in English before I read LotR in German and it took me forever to realize that Bilbo Baggins was identical with Bilbo Beutlin and that The Shire was Das Auenland. I'll never understand why translators also translate the names of characters and places in novels.[return]Other than that it's a very entertaining book and a good introduction to the world of LotR.
