What makes the Hobbit great?
As a story you can take your pick:
Is it that it is a children’s book and still challenges a reader?
Is it the beautiful scenery?
Is it that it is a precursor to one of the most popular stories of our time?
Is it because of the morally sound characters?
Or is it because of the fun and imagination that sparks a little kid and a little magic deep inside?
Maybe it is all of the above and Tolkien was simply a genius of a writer. He has inspired me to be a writer and I hope he continues to do so for ages to come. The clever, even humorous, writing, the use of words uncommon in our present language, the thrilling escapades, and a sense of adventure and magic is everything I want to be as a writer. Thank you Mr. Tolkien for inspiring me.
