Words of a Bibliophile

The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien

The Hobbit - J.R.R. Tolkien, Alan Lee

As adventures go, this one is pretty fun and exciting. But I did feel there's a little less trust and unity between the dwarves and Bilbo than I expected. Not all dwarves are treated equally, some get more important roles while others barely get mentioned every few dozen pages or so. By the end of the book I tried to do a dwarf count and found that I'd forgotten some of their names. Gollum, on the other hand, is a stand-out. His riddle game with Bilbo is one of my favorite parts.
