Book Review Of "T He Hobbit" By Tolken

709 words - 3 pages

The Hobbit, a novel by J. R. R. Tolkien, was about a heroic quest and a fictional story for kids. This story included a hobbit, dwarves, elves, wargs, goblins, a half-man half-bear, a wizard, and a magic ring. Bilbo was asked to go with the dwarves on their adventure and he would get some money in return. He agrees and goes along with them. On their way, they face many difficulties and sometimes got in very troubled situations. In a cave, the hobbit finds a ring, which is magical, and helps make whoever puts it on, invisible. Bilbo uses that ring throughout the whole story to help him in hard times. Their mission is to kill the villain and get the treasure that he stole from them and they succeed in that goal. After they get the treasure, they have trouble dividing it up, but after a while they work things out, the adventure is over and Bilbo returns to his home. This story is very interesting and will keep you on the edge of your seat till the end. Since the first time, when you will really get into the story you will stay focused throughout the whole book because not once does the story drift off and become boring. It is a very entertaining story. The author J. R. R. Tolkien did an amazing job writing this story that if you ever got the chance to rewrite this book you would not change a thing about it. He kept the story flowing so well throughout the whole book that it seemed like he put one eye-catching and entertaining thing after another, to keep you reading on and on. One of the things that you might not enjoy about this book is that it is somewhat long. Also like most of the other good authors Tolkien uses a good amount of time to display most of the settings, which makes the book seem longer than it is. Now if you do not enjoy...

The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug Review

418 words - 2 pages Orlando Bloom, to name a few. Then there is Smaug! Smaug (voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch) is by far the best dragon we've seen to date. Visually stunning and has a voice to match. Smaug could very well give your children nightmares and leave you gitty. Martin Freeman's acting is great again, but doesn't seem to get a lot of screen time. The screen time he does get is almost drowned out by Smaug. Overall I think Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug does J.R.R Tolkien's novel justice, despite his straying from the novel. While, I doubt it'll hold any weight against the Lord of the Rings trilogy, it is much less boring than the first installment of The Hobbit.
