The Hobbit, or There and Back Again. Or: how the little hobbit Bilbo Baggins of Bag End went on an adventure, became a cunning burglar and found a magical ring that got his nephew in all kinds of trouble.
No, this wasn’t the first time I read The Hobbit. It was the first time I read it English, though. And although it’s nowhere near as good as what came next, it probably won’t be the last time I’ve read it either.
