The Hobbit stinks.
It is just so boreing.
“DEATH TO HOBBITS!”
This is such a horrible book.
Gandalf the wizard is a bogus
Swoar, lil’ fools wack for REALL.
And what’s this thing about hairy feet?
Crying because the story will NOT END!
my mom liked it (what’s wrong with her? )
Spend your money on Harry Potter instead.
I dought we will ever finish this horrible book.
No offense, but the suspense was not at all amusing
I know for a fact that there are several of Hobbit fans.
Bilbo is a Hobbit who seems not to do much in the story.
it was as if a ten year old coul’ve made up these characters.
forget about all the other reviews. they just think bilbo the bimbo is hot.
This is a dangerous book and is an extremely bad influence on adolescents.
Not only that, it is also more boring than having tea with nan and the relatives.
There is no action and Bilbo Baggins is the biggest a$$ in a fantasy novel ever.
This is a prime example of what happens when Star Trek and Star Wars dorks pick up a book.
No originality whatsoever is involved and the pages make me wish I was not even in existence.
After reading literary masterpieces by Robert Jordan, and Aurther C. Clark, books like these seem pointless.
The book is about a young hobit that goes on an adventurer to get rid of a ring that if you w where it you turn e ebook
One more things on the dwarves. They are useless characters and this story makes me want to vomit.
This book is a story of your everyday savior (supposedly Bilbo) having adventures and slaying a dragon.
The ending of the story is horrible and it seems that Tolkien wasted his POOR and SENSELESS usage of his brain.
They also don’t fit the spirit of dwarves, but then again after time they evolved into the grumpy alchoholics fantasy tends to portray them as.
I sit there reading every single word of it, but I think about something else. I read “Bilbo blah blah blah,” but think “Oh what am I gonna do today after school?”
Bilbo is not exactly the character which you would find addicted to. He stammers and is basically a coward.
This yogurt tastes awful! This is the worst yogurt I have ever tasted!
And like all stories, there are monsters and strange happenings.
What was I drinking when I decided to read this piece of junk?
:-( Boo! :-( Boo! :-( Boo! :-( Boo! :-( Boo!:-(
I despise and loathe this series tremendously.
I’m just glad this guy’s dead. :)
Bilbo reminds me of a pig.
“DIE HOBBITS, DIE!”
Idiotic and Irritating.
to many characters!
this is some butt
