This book is about my uncle on his adventure to find the Lonely Mountain with a group of dwarves. I think that this book is very well written and should be read to all the hobbits in the Shire.
Sincerely,
Mr. Frodo and Sam

i think this was a very good book . it was kind of like one of those books where you get hooked forever , then you get to a part and stop . after you see the book again you all i never finished that it was pretty good i’m gonna start reading it again . it was a really cool book because there was alot of battles . the first battle was when the main character biblo baggins , and his dwarf posse get kidnapped by some goblins after staying in a cave over night to avoid a storm. they get kidnapped and then escape with goblins coming after all of them. im at school so i will do the other half another time

The Hobbit: In a theater in your town there played a movie.

“In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit.” —The Hobbit, page 1, sentence 1

And if you didn’t know that the movie adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s classic novel The Hobbit was coming to theaters this Friday… then perhaps you’ve been living in a hole!

In case you were indeed in that hole, let me pull you out: Bilbo Baggins, a hobbit, reluctantly joins a band of dwarves (Thorin, Dwalin, Balin, Fíli, Kíli, Dori, Nori, Ori, Glóin, Óin, Bifur, Bofur, and *deep breath* Bombur) to recapture their mountain and recover treasure from the dragon Smaug. Wizards, elves, goblins, trolls, and giant spiders also included.

What you might not know… is that this is actually the first of three movies, all adapted from the 310-page book. That’s pretty much the same length as Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (309 pages) and that was only one movie!

The three movies for The Hobbit are titled:

  • The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
  • The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
  • The Hobbit: There and Back Again

(Uh, spoiler alert much, movie producers? Now anyone — well, anyone who hasn’t read the books or watched other adaptations of the book — knows that Smaug, the eloquent and greedy dragon, becomes desolated. Uncool).

I’m going to carve out some time this week to re-read The Hobbit before I see the movie! Even if it means sleeping an hour or two less, which if memory serves, won’t be so difficult — because I remember the book being awesome!

Have you read The Hobbit? Are you going to catch it in theaters during winter break? Leave a comment or send in a review of the book, just like Mira, age 11 from Colorado did!

Nancy relates well with Bilbo Baggins because he enjoys eating and thinks about food all the time. I think we all do, especially during holiday snacking season!
