Yeah, it's a great book. I've read it and it actually leads up to the Lord of The Rings, how Frodo's uncle got the ring.

Thanks, but my friend said it can drag out sections of it. This true?

not too bad. but i think it was initially meant to be a childrens book (and part of it really gives you that feeling ...)

It can, but without it you'll miss some details that, without, would make the story harder to follow. It's a short book, and good for killing time.

In case you hvaen't read them, The Hobbit is a very good book, one of the best fantasy books I've read. If you're interested in all of Tolkien's world, then you might want to check out the Silmarillion, but beware, it's like a history book. Many names, many dates, etc.

The Silmarillion is like the LOTR Bible... literally. It even has a couple of chapters depicting the Genesis of Middle Earth. As subdee said: many dates, MANY names, lots of info that provide the other books with a very wide context.

I recommend reading the books in this order: The Hobbit, The LOTR Trilogy, The Silmarillion.

After that you have other books telling extra stories if you are interested.

I liked The Hobbit. I tried to read the trilogy, but I was young and they just weren't interesting. And yea, The Hobbit does kinda read like a kid's book, but it's still pretty beast.
