    Like every other hobbit, Bilbo Baggins likes nothing better than a quiet evening in his snug hole in the ground, dining on a sumptuous dinner in front of a fire. But when a wandering wizard captivates him with tales of the unknown, Bilbo becomes restless. Soon he joins the wizard’s band of homeless dwarves in search of giant spiders, savage wolves, and other dangers. Bilbo quickly tires of the quest for adventure and longs for the security of his familiar home. But before he can return to his life of comfort, he must face the greatest threat of all.

    What did you love best about The Hobbit?

    the Hobbit combines descriptive narrative with action.


    What other book might you compare The Hobbit to and why?

    you could compare the Hobbit to Lord of the Rings, but you'd be wrong. The characters are similar, but the Hobbit is a simple story of travel and adventure. It's really like Huckleberry Finn. It's a journey of adventure and discovery.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I think my favorite scen was Bilbo in the caves of the forest elves


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I first read this book 40 years ago in my early teens. It was my earliest experience with fantasy. The audio version exceeded my expectations. It brought back memories of my childhood
