I first read this at school about seventeen years ago. I remembered that i loved it, but not much else. Turns out i still love it.

Bilbo is flawless and perfect. I honestly didn't like anyone else too much, but that's usual for me. I will admit i welled up a bit towards the end.

The Hobbit is a fantastic adventure that i never wanted to stop reading. I found the narrative voice perfect, and have never read a better omniscient third person point of view story.

So much love for this book. Re-reading this has tempted me to try reading The Lord of the Rings again...

Quotes Wendle Liked

J.R.R. Tolkien
“Already he was a very different hobbit from the one that had run out without a pocket-handkerchief from Bag-End long ago. He had not had a pocket-handkerchief for ages.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit
