“There is more in you of good than you know, child of the kindly West. Some courage and some wisdom, blended in measure. If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.”
— Thorin Oakenshield, The Hobbit
I have always loved fantasy books. They are my escape from the stressful reality. I am so happy to share to you my opinion, for the very first time, on a fantasy book that is close to my heart.
I became a fan of J.R.R. Tolkien’s works when I first watched The Lord of the Rings Trilogy. Like most women, I of course fell in love with Legolas Greenleaf, but I will not talk about my unrequited love for him in this post. I will focus on how mesmerized I was to be dragged in the world of the entirely respectable Mr. Bilbo Baggins of the Shire.
It is one of those stories that I feel like I am dragged inside a world doing the adventure together with the characters. For that, I will forever be grateful to J.R.R. Tolkien for giving us Middle Earth. ❤
