the hobbit is a fantasy story, but it is not an epic tale; its quite a simple story, but one you cant help but love. it is essentially a children's book, and is not as intense or dark as the lord of the rings, but it still draws you in as an adult. it offers up lighthearted humor with a fun and captivating story- and also there is Gollum to enjoy!
