It's a good book, but it's a little slow at parts. I like Lord of the Rings better.

First big book read

in 4th grade. Many happy hours followed.

The Hobbit

This is a great book. Lighter than Lord of the Rings but just as captivating.

A Must Read

The best book I have ever read. Beats Narnia and Harry Potter any time

Not as Epic

as the Lord of the Rings. Much more of a "fun" story. Sets up a lot of things for the Lord of the Rings, but very enjoyable to read all by itself.

Really intresting

If you really want the FULL potential of this book, read it, then read Lord of the Rings, then read it again.
this book was really interesting and great. it will be a book I'll read again!


This is my Language Arts teacher's favorite book. This is a unique book.

The Hobbit

In this prequel, to the Lord of the Rings series, J.R.R. Tolkien takes the reader on a marvelous journey that introduces the world of Middle-Earth. It is a great way to introduce younger readers to Tolkien's style, as the later books may be harder for them to get through. It is also a very good read before the complete Lord of the Rings series, as it is referenced many times.
I would highly reccommend it. Although Tolkien can be difficault to get through in some places, it is very rewarding.

A unique children's book

I read The Hobbit a few years ago in high school, and it was quite enjoyable. Tolkien invites us into a very charming and imaginative world, and the adventures of the characters should be interesting to adults and children alike. Tolkien does have a more wordy style and includes lots of songs/poems that do not necessarily further the plot. Some people love them, so people don't. Personally, I found them charming, though I could have done without a couple.
