5.0 out of 5 stars The most amazing adventure story, 18 Jan. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: The Hobbit (Hardcover)
At the age of 31 I thought that it was about time for me to read Tolkien's classic "The Hobbit" and I was not disappointed. I love to escape into a fantasy world now and again and "The Hobbit" gave me every opportunity to do this. Beautifully illustrated, the story actually comes to life and throughout the book the reader continues to picture the famous hobbit, little Bilbo Baggins with his pot belly and his hairy feet! This is the most amazing tale of an adventure beyond your wildest dreams and is almost like a pantomime at times making you want to boo and hiss at the wicked goblins and wolves and cheer when one of the 'good guys' overcomes adversity. The illustrations throughout the book allow you to see the forests and the dwarves and the great wizard 'Gandalf' and of course the mighty dragon 'Smaug'.
If you're a reader of modern day adventure stories like 'Harry Potter' (which I am) - you'll love this. Read it and enjoy it, then treasure it to read to your children and your grandchildren. This is truly a classic and will never go out of fashion.
