3.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable short fable in the typical Tolkien style, 23 Mar. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Farmer Giles of Ham (Paperback)
This is in no way up to the standard of LOTR or the Hobbit, understandably as this story was originally intended as a short witty tale not for publication. BUT it is Tolkien and any true fan of the great author must read this book. A farmer, Giles, from the village of Ham, suffers great torment at the hands of his fellow villagers and countryfolk all because of a cheating,irritable and hungry dragon. Along with his "trusty" dog he has to attempt to conquer this rather slovenly creature and live up to his unwanted title of hero. It is a short uncomplicated story to read and the detail given as to why and how the story came about is almost more interesting than the tale. It provides a great insight into how Tolkien formulated his other more famous books. Overall all an enjoyable read but probably appreciated more read as a bedtime story for a young child.
