    " An all-time favorite; a security blanket in binding. The Hobbit is classic fantasy, and also serves as a wonderful example of classic storytelling, of high adventure, and the eternal struggle of simple-goodness against evil. "

    " When i was in college i hated this book because the "rules" seemed contrived but similar to other books. Now that i am older i am more tolerant (senile).

About the Author

John Ronald Reuel Tolkien (1892-1973) was a major scholar of the English language, specializing in Old and Middle English. Twice Professor of Anglo-Saxon (Old English) at the University of Oxford, he also wrote a number of stories, including most famously The Hobbit (1937) and The Lord of the Rings (1954-1955), which are set in a pre-historic era in an invented version of the world which he called by the Middle English name of Middle-earth.
