Review: The Hobbit (or there and back again)

The Hobbit
The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien
ISBN: 0618260307
This book is available on Amazon
The Hobbit is a prequel to the infamous The Lord of the Rings trilogy. This won’t be your naive run-of-the-mill “this book rocks!!” type of reviews. To be quite honest, I found this novel to be rather bland and uninspired. It felt quite drab and lacking any kind of compelling plot when compared to the action packed extravaganza that the LOTR’s trilogy provided. It’s tough for me to recommend this famous book to anyone considering I so thoroughly loathed reading this, but perhaps if the potential victim hadn’t already been spoiled by the wonderful journey that is the LOTR trilogy then they might find it exciting.
