The Hobbit, or There and Back Again (1937)

My re-read of Tolkien’s kick-ass classic was inspired in large part to the upcoming film and a new year. Even, and perhaps especially, if you aren’t a Dungeons & Dragons nerd The Hobbit (and its following titles) remain must read titles. While it has been awhile since I’ve given Beowulf  or Sir Gawain and the Green Knight a gander I am certain that Tolkien’s work trumps them for the simple fact of not being boring and obvious.
