The Hobbit, by J. R. R. Tolkien, is one of the most amazing works of literature I have ever read. The book follows the adventures of Thorin’s company (composed of Gandalf, Bilbo, and thirteen dwarfs) on their quest to raid the lair of Smaug the dragon and steal his treasure. The world that Tolkien creates is incredible: He includes vivid detail to help readers construct a powerful mental image of Middle-Earth and its inhabitants. Through The Hobbit, Tolkien is able to set up an incredible world that sets the scene for The Lord of the Rings and more books to come. It is understandable that many readers would be deterred from reading this book due to the amount of difficult language in it, however through careful reading and simply enjoying the amount of detail that Tolkien includes, it becomes possible to enjoy the type of language that he uses. Thus, I recommend The Hobbit to all interested readers, as it is a great novel by itself, and sets up an incredible world for several books to come.
