I fully admit without any shame that the only reason I read this book a couple of months ago is because my favorite British actor Richard Armitage is in the upcoming movie playing Thorin Oakenshield. If it was not for that fact I never would have picked up this book to read. I never even heard of it before learning about the movie. You are all probably wondering what secluded world have I been living in.
I enjoyed reading The Hobbit but not as much as many Tolkiens fans did and still do. Don’t get me wrong it was a good and even a fast read. It is simply that these types of stories are not my cup of tea. I loved the Bilbo Baggins and Gandalf characters and middle earth seems like a magical place. I will not be reading Lord of The Rings.
Now please don’t throw tomatoes at me.
