The Hobbit Bookreview Alex Ghilus
Your book is a wonderful classic hero quest story. It has become the inspiration and template for the modern fantasy genre. And it is an adventure that is filled with wonder, magic, action and vividly memorable characters. These are impressive accomplishments for any story. But considering the fact that your book was originally intended to be a simple children’s tale, the success of the book is all the more pronounced. Readers who are interested in the entire Lord of the Rings saga would do well to begin their journey with The Hobbit.

The defeat itself doesn’t come during the riddle game, but rather a few moments later when Bilbo, made invisible by the ring, has an opportunity to murder Gollum.
