...and back, again!
I first read The Hobbit (& the trilogy) in 1968 when in 8th grade.
I re-read The Hobbit in 1979 and again was completely captivated by the story.
Again, I read The Hobbit in 1993 and again the same response.
And so, in this 2011 I read AGAIN The Hobbit and was completely delighted that I STILL Love the Story!!
A well-worth read. A well-worth investment to buy a copy--new or used or collectable.
A well-worth RE-READ as well!
And there it is.

I am very pleased with this book! It is a timless classic that i enjoyed as a teen and was fortunate to read it as an adult. If u love being pulled into a story, then you will enjoy what Tolkien has to offer.

If you haven't heard of or read The Hobbit, you need to join the human race for goodness' sake! No biggie, but it's only the most fantastic written example of right and wrong, good vs. evil, and arrogance vs. humility that has been written, imho. The Bible comes in a CLOSE second, but no mention of Hobbits in the Bible forces it into the back seat compared to The Hobbit! (Dwarves, elves and trolls all do get mentioned in the Bible, I think!) Just be careful, if you read The Hobbit, you will probably also read the trilogy of the Lord of the Rings. Simply amazing literature on every level.
