The timeless classic of the fantasy genre

5 stars

The Hobbit is the first of Tolkien's stories set in the Middle Earth... Actually this book needs no introduction as majority of people are probably aware of its existance and know how Tolkien pioneered the modern fantasy genre. However, it still holds strongly to this day. This epic story of a hobbit embarking on an unexpected journey with a team of dwarves and a wizard just really hooks you in and the world around is built with passion and full of surprises. I love it and now I understand why it's so praised by many.

Pese a lo interesante de la historia y lo emocionante de cualquier viaje y aventura por la Tierra Media, no siento que haya llegado a conocer a los personajes y encariñarme de ellos como en la trilogía.
