JRR Tolkien is genius in every sense of the word. As an author he can create worlds (I use that phrase literally) that are utterly believable. The Hobbit, is an exceptional piece of literature that can appeal to all age groups. The sheer level fantasy of it makes this book just facsinating to read. What separates Tolkien from other fantasy authors, is that he can create an atmosphere brilliantly and developes characters with such ease that no boring stories have to be told. The book deals with issues of good and evil but like most Tolkien novels, it goes beyond that. The Hobbit deals with issues (such as war and prejudice) that apply now-a-days.
A thoroughly encourage EVERYONE to read this book, even if you deteste fantasy I'm sure you will love this and if not...you have read an exceptional piece of literature!

Such a great book. I'm a big fan of 'the Lord of the ring' trilogy so this didn't disappoint .

Calling this book children's book is like calling "Alice in Wonderland" [The Annotated Alice] children's book. Yes children can read this book and it is fun. How ever there is a lot more to this book than a cute story.
Many people look at this story as a prequel to [The Lord of the Rings]. Where in reality it is a stand-alone story with a perfectly good beginning, middle, and end. When you read "The Lord of the Rings" there is enough description to forgo "The Hobbit." Personally, I find that reading The Lord of the Rings first gave me the in-depth background to better appreciate The Hobbit.
Many of the creatures and adventures will put you on the edge of your seat. However you will recognize the personalities and grow along will Bilbo as he faces new challenges as he learns to deal with life.
