Even when Peter Jackson’s movies were released, and I became completely enamored of the world of Middle Earth, I was daunted by the books. But reading everything again last year was a lot more satisfying and I skipped nothing at all. The first one definitely isn’t spoilery, as it is described completely in the first chapter. Tell me, are you secretly a hobbit? Mark Watches Doctor Who: I’mma get the ball rolling on this with something from one of the Hobbit production videos spoilery, Mark, so don’t seek them out yet.

All of my friends loved these books, they’ve even yrneag gur ryivfu? I’ve always loved the description of Lord of the Rings given by Marco from Animorphs: Though it would certainly be suited to the hobbits’ lifestyle. I am so happy to have happened into this at the very beginning!

I may have to dust off my copies and read along! How can one make a claim like that! But there was -so much description- that I was struggling to get through to the actual plot which I enjoyedand I ended up giving it up around the point there was a description of a tree for like two pages or something.

Hopefully we can discuss future retcons in…future chapters…. Voice of the Ring voice. His prosey style is what puts off a lot of people—I know several fantasy fans who can’t stand to read Tolkien because of the way streamnig goes on and on and on. For instance, the very first draft of The Hobbit actually features a reference to China, which was quickly jettisoned when he made the decision to have Middle Earth be completely seperate from our world.


So this is to say, I’ll be reading along with you Mark! I love Kindles and such beyond all reason, but sometimes I do long for book-smell.

Well, I’m sure the Malfoys would buy another set, after punishing whoever broke the plates probably Dobby, poor thing.

Mark Reads ‘The Hobbit’: Chapter 1

Much that once was is lost, for none now live who remember it. Since you’re starting with The Hobbit, I’ve decided to read along with you! I know some people have had problems with this in the past, but I don’t know how to fix it.

Actually, my plan is to do a different one for each separate book of LOTR. I remember being so sad when the third mixturevixeo came out, because that meant the LOTR era was over.

I tried to read Perdido Street Station. Evil Will Hunt Them. October 24, at 8: JK, I absolutely agree, the dwarves are totally rude and no one can blame you for not wanting them as house guests. Same goes for Andy Serkis, except obviously he’s not the composer.

Supposedly, the book started when he was in the middle of boring work grading papers and suddenly decided to write on an index card, appropos of absolutely nothing, “In a hole in the ground, there lived a Hobbit. I knew going into it that it’s more of a children’s book than the trilogy, so maybe that’s why I didn’t mind Tolkien stepping in occasionally; I found it kind of fun and a little cheeky — or like a knowing wink or something. His prose, therefore, is best loved by those who also love words for their own sake.

hobit OH Mark, how I missed you!!!!! In the first chapter of The Hobbitwe are introduced the the world of the hobbits and, in particular, a specific hobbit named Bilbo Baggins, who very much would like to not go on an adventure. I love how you wander into a tangent about fields of potato babies.

In the latter task he was certainly not helped by the author or the book: There are singing dwarves in The Hobbit. After the three LotR movies came out I read that trilogy for the first time. No, seriously, never inviting a dwarf into my house. October 24, at I wish it was in the books.

I hardly ever touch them because they feel so fragile, but OMG. Thank you, and I hope the same for you!
