I really enjoyed The Hobbit. It is full of adventure, fun, and danger. It was interesting to read how Bilbo acquired the ring and built his relationships with Elves and Dwarves, so I'm now looking forward to reading LOTR. The Hobbit, itself, is a nice little tale and extremely enjoyable for those who like to read fantasy novels. I give it 4 and a half stars. If you enjoy Terry Pratchett's work, you should like this.
