Product Description

Product Description

A parody of JRR Tolkien’s fantasy prequel masterpiece, The Wobbit A Parody (Of The Hobbit) is a tale of low-to-medium adventure with plenty of cheap laughs.

The quest begins when thirteen dwarf bankers go in search of the dragon who stole their deposits and ate their borrowers. They visit a former employee and hire him back as a contractor: former teller Bulbo Bunkins (who would rather be enjoying a cocktail in his recliner.) Bulbo surprises the dwarves with his ability to “think outside the strong-box,” like when he points out that none of the dwarves have brought swords with on their dragon-slaying mission. Encounters with gourmet trolls, wiseguy goblins, resort-keeper elves, deadly but comforting giant spiders, and the egocentric dragon, Smug, are just a few of the adventures that Bulbo puts up with. Finally, when he thinks things can't get any worse, he finds himself making a guest appearance at the Battle Of Six Or Seven Armies.

The author hopes that Bulbo Bunkins soon takes a place among the immortal characters of parody literature, like The Tick and Scrooge McDuck. Written by an actual unemployed banker, The Wobbit A Parody (Of The Hobbit) will, with any luck at all, earn enough money to make his return to banking unnecessary.

5.0 out of 5 stars A thud an blunder epic. 5 Oct 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Lovingly crafted from Tolkien's classic with a wry sense of humor, honed in the world of high finance.

A world filled with heroes, villains and wizards with delusions of adequacy.

Final proof, if any were needed, that Project Managers are prime candidates for the B-Ark.

You owe it to the government, you owe it to the banks but most of all you owe it to yourself to check out the free preview.

"Winter is coming", so why not curl up with a good book ?

3.0 out of 5 stars Not for Tolkein Fans 4 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this based on the reviews previously posted. It was not laugh out loud funny but mildly amusing. It is loosely based around The Hobbitt but lacks any of the finer writting and suspense. It is Ok to pass the time but do not purchase if you are looking for adventure.
I appreciate it is a parody but it falls short on laughs and is therefore for me a read that gives the odd smile and maybe smirk.
