It has this very unique quality of writting that is intended for children but at the same time adults not only can read but can really enjoy.
J.R.R. Tolkein is the greatest writer of fantasy fiction ever. With the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy book and movie, and with the forthcoming "The Hobbit" movie coming out someday soon drawn directly from the book, I'm really lloking forward to it all. I read the Hobbit series of books when I was in my early teens, and loved exery moment of the story lines. For escapist fiction, Tolkein, and Anne McCaffery cannot be beat.
My first book that I read from cover to cover! I was in High school and not into book and more into sports and girls. But one time my friend Nathan had pained a mural inside the school's library so I went to check it out. While I was in there (first time ever) I decided to look around and the tittle of this this book caught my attention: The master of Fantasy and it was J.R.R Tolkien biography. I went trough it and at the end it had all the work he had done. On top it was "The Hobbit" so in that same instant I went and look for it. Found it but was not to happy to see that it was thick and bulky. I still got it and that was the start of an amazing adventure!!
I remember this book - because my little (then) son had out-read all the childrens books in the library and demanded some MORE intense reading, so I took this out for him - he was "under-aged" for the "adult" section books!

And this led to his life-long interest in the "other" worlds that inhabit this earth ... which lead (it seems?) to his writing his own book - (listed here in the Books section of CS -"They call me Nightwalker") ... where he revels in his characters.
One of my all time faves! This is a masterpiece!

A great modern classic and the prelude to The Lord of the Rings.
Bilbo Baggins is a hobbit who enjoys a comfortable, unambitious life, rarely traveling any farther than his pantry or cellar. But his contentment is disturbed when the wizard Gandalf and a company of dwarves arrive on his doorstep one day to whisk him away on an adventure. They have launched a plot to raid the treasure hoard guarded by Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous dragon. Bilbo reluctantly joins their quest, unaware that on his journey to the Lonely Mountain he will encounter both a magic ring and a frightening creature known as Gollum.

“A glorious account of a magnificent adventure, filled with suspense and seasoned with a quiet humor that is irresistible . . . All those, young or old, who love a fine adventurous tale, beautifully told, will take The Hobbit to their hearts.” – New York Times Book Review
