LibraryThing Review

User Review  - SESchend - LibraryThing

Very very good adaptation of Tolkien's HOBBIT I finally took down from the shelves after 11 years. I wanted to reread the actual novel but didn't have time, so this was my fall-back. Good storytelling with great art by David Wenzel. Read full review

Review: The Hobbit (Middle-Earth Universe)

User Review  - Clare Walker - Goodreads

So glad to be done with this. I can appreciate it's good and everything, but Fantasy books are just not for me. I was barely taking it in towards the end. Been trying to read this for about ten years, and it was worth it. It's cute. But no Lord of the Rings for me! Read full review
