The Hobbit (J.R.R. Tolkien)

What an interesting read of fantasy, adventures, and all the exciting happenings encountered during the long and difficult journey to slay the magnificent dragon, Smaug, and reclaim all the jewels and gold to where they belong.  I like the style the story was narrated, which was easy to follow.  Enjoyed every page just like how I have enjoyed reading the Trilogy, that was in 2008.  Thanks to Bookcrossing, I have make a note on my BC profile of the books read, so now I remember.  Never thought I could finish Lord of the Rings, yet now after The Hobbit, it makes me want to continue with the Fellowship of the Ring.  So… that was how that precious came into Bilbo’s possession, and what happened long long time ago before Frodo.

I admired Tolkien’s rich imagination to come up with all these stories, and also the wordings of those songs and riddles in the pages – very amusing and chuckling.

I’m now looking forward to watch the movie, to see all the action of Thorin, the son of Tharin, and the grandson of Thror’s quest, together with his dwarvish companions – Balin, the fat Bombur, Fili and Kili, Ori and Oin etc… with Bilbo and Gandalf, how with their friends they battle with the trolls, spiders, elves, goblins & host of wargs.  So far, this is one classic I like the  most.

Here’s the trailer, couldn’t wait to watch the movie in Dec.
