AWESOME! I really enjoyed reading this book. It's really the first book I've read that focuses mainly on adventure. Many other adventure books I have read veer off subject, but not this one! Wonderful book, very funny too. I can't wait to see the movies!!

“Old Took's great-granduncle Bullroarer...was so huge (for a hobbit) that he could ride a horse. He charged the ranks of the goblins of Mount Gram in the Battle of the Green Fields, and knocked their king Golfibul's head clean off with a wooden club. It sailed a hundred yards through the air and went down a rabbit-hole, and in this way the battle was won and the game of Golf was invented at the same moment.”
