A Greater World
11 December, 2013
An extraordinary tale infused with hints of mystery, thrill, sorcery and glory is what the author J.R.R. Tolkien has created in The Hobbit. Treading the path of a more simplified character Bilbo Baggins comes an unexpected journey into the wild, bringing him face to face with a dragon Smaug and there unfolds a saga so mystique that takes the readers into a completely different world.
You can say that this is a kind of epic fantasy meant for the young readers but trust me there is much more to it than plain magic and fantasy. In fact the way the author has penned this book is not exactly a young reader's cup of tea. Written in the most gripping way, The Hobbit is sure to enrapture even the older readers and make him immerse in the brilliant world of Bilbo Baggins, allowing him to crave for more. I loved the way the author narrates the story yet keeps the suspense coming, as a result of which the reader wishes to read further until he unravels the mystery.
The Hobbit is a very interesting world altogether and even transcends the barriers of the book in terms of pages but only if a person has not seen the films prior to reading. In fact I would advise the people not to watch the films before reading this book as that would completely mar the experience of reading. In totality, The Hobbit is complete value for money and a must read for both the young and old readers
