Even though a review on The Hobbit was recently posted, Astrid A., age 14, presents another excellent “bird’s eye view” on the literary classic.
The Hobbit, written by J.R.R Tolkien, is an fantasy adventure based book. The book includes many quests and stories. The main character, Bilbo Baggins, becomes a burglar on a quest to take back the dwarven kingdom from Smaug the drake. It is about 300 pages long, meant for readers age 11 and up. The Hobbit is the first book in the “Lord of the Rings Book” series. If you like to read books with an ancient writing pattern, or adventure, you will like this book. It’s a good novel that sparks the imagination, and can’t be put down due to the constant action. A good re-read as well. It was amazing, and I would read it again anytime!
