livre d'or

Book: The hobbit

Author: JRR Tolkien

Details: (c) 1937; Pub George Allen & Unwin 1975; ISBN 0-04-823126-6

Verdict: The hobbit is a delightful children's fantasy which stands up well to rereading.

Reasons for reading it: I haven't made a habit of rereading The hobbit since I was a kid, but since it is such a big thematic element in Babel Tower I was motivated to have another look at it.

How it came into my hands: I picked up a nice edition in one of the Dundee second hand bookshops, one with plates of some of Tolkien's original drawings.
