Why did I love this book?
The Hobbit was my introduction to Middle Earth. It was a natural step to the rest of the novels. And it had everything to entice me: wizards, adventure, elves, dwarves…and hobbits. I wanted to live in the Shire. Or with the elves in Lothlórien. Of course, I’d also want to leave once the war escalated. But my love for Middle Earth has never faded. The Hobbit was the beginning of my love for epic fantasy. My Modern Magics series is certainly influenced by LOTR. Although it’s set in the present. I highly recommend The Hobbit and the rest of the series to fans of the genre.
