it was amazing
bookshelves: lord-of-the-ring

The Hobbit is beautifully written. Unlike some of J.R.R. Tolkien's novels set in The Lord of the Rings universe, The Hobbit is a book even primary school kids have the ability to read.

Having read The Lord of the Rings triology beforehand, I had noticed that the vocabulary and tone of voice is rather different. The Hobbit has a lighter, more playful, tone of voice; and its contents is less dark than The Lord of the Rings triology, which includes suffering, the loss of loved ones, moral conflicts, etc.

If you're looking for a fantasy adventure novel without heavy romance and with a rather light-beat mood, I would definitely go for this book.
