  • As they are currently filming the Hobbit, I thought it was time for reread
  • So, would I recommend reading it before the Hobbit films come out
  • I still love the book, so if you haven't read, I'd definitely say give it a go
  • I didn't know anything about the rest of Tolkiens books the first time I read it, that wasn't a problem
  • They are quite simple and easy to understand, and has a certain childlike charm that I think the book also possesses

      As they are currently filming the Hobbit, I thought it was time for reread. I’ve read it few times before, but as it is ages ago I gave it another try.

      So, would I recommend reading it before the Hobbit films come out? I still love the book, so if you haven’t read,


      I’d definitely say give it a go.

      It is a children book, so the language isn’t very complicated and the characters don’t have a lot of debt.

      But it is funny, there is much more humour in it than in for example Lord of the Rings.

      The plot is quite simple, get the ...


      • treasure, kill the dragon, but it isn’t clear from the start who will accomplish what.

        I didn’t know anything about the rest of Tolkiens books the first time I read it, that wasn’t a problem.

        It is quite a few characters, but for me they worked more as groups than single characters so

        it didn’t get too confusing.

        There are quite a few editions of the Hobbit; my favourite illustrator is Tolkien himself.

        Not because he was a big artist, but I think that his drawings fit the story.

        They are quite simple and easy to understand, and has a certain childlike charm that I think the book also possesses.
