Book Promotion The Hobbit

Whisked away from his comfortable and safe hobit hole by the great wizard Gandalf and a pack of angry dwarves, Bilbo Bagins finds himself caught up in a plot to raid the treasure  hoard of Smaug the magnificent,the large and the dangerous DRAGON.

The  Hobit is a book written by J.R.R Tolkien. This book is set long before the Lord of the Rings time.
In this book the author tells a story about a dwarven village rich in gold and jewels(mostly gold) that gets attacked by a dragon. There is a massive number of casualties and the dwarves are forced to find a new home.The king from that villages great grand-son Thorin, Gandalf, Bilbo and a pack of Braves go out on a quest to take back their long forgotten gold and slay the dragon Smaug.

Over all The Hobit is a very entertaining book and I recommend this book for the age group of  12-30
and a rating of 7/10

rating: *******

Book review by Henrique Boroviec


  1. Book Promotion The Invention of Hugo Cabret
    I would recommend this book for 9 year olds and over because it may be interesting to younger people, but the language features might be a bit complex. This book is very good and descriptive and it really sets the scene with the amazing words and pictures. Brain Selznick is a great author and I would recommend his books to people who like a bit of mystery, a bit of drama and a bit of humour.

    This story is about an orphan boy whose name is Hugo. He lives in a train station in France, fixing clocks, he ended up there because his father died in a tremendous raging fire and (there is no story about what happened to the mother) so his alcoholic Uncle took him in and told him how to work the clocks that were in the train station; Hugo soon became his apprentice. Hugo’s Uncle always came home late, and one night he didn’t come home at all. So for two years Hugo has been running the clocks and fixing something his father left for him called an automaton. Further on Hugo finds a curious friend, Isabelle. Isabelle’s god father Papa George is a man who owns a toy booth in the train station and hates people who click their loud heels past his booth, occasionally Hugo steals parts and tools from him to fix the invention his father found and gave him. Hugo and Isabelle go through a big mystery then finds out a big secret papa George has kept for years and uncovers how his father’s invention has something to do with papa George’s big past secret.

    I would rate this book 9/10 just because it didn’t have a really good hook at the start, but when I got past the first couple of paragraphs it was very interesting.. Other books that Brian Selznick has written are Wonder Struck, The Houdini box and many more.

    This Blurb was written by Yasmine Maarouf.

  2. far over the misty mountaims cold
    two dungeons deep and caverns old
    we must away ere break of day,
    to seek the pale enchanted gold

    the dwarves of yore made mighty spells
    while hammers fell like ringing bells
    in places deep, were dark things sleep
    in hollow halls beneath the fells

    for aincient king and elvish lord
    there many a gleaming golden hoard
    they shaped and wrought and light they cought
    to hide in gems the hilt of sword

    first there versese of the song in the 1st chapter
