The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien

J. R. R. Tolkien imagines a place that hasn’t been thought by anyone else—a beautiful, mystical world—and just makes it absolutely visible for the readers. However, The Hobbit is not just a story printed on paper. This novel is a rare 4D book, making you moving from place to place, by just staying with the rhythm of what you’re picturing.

In a hole in the ground, there lived Bilbo—he’s a hobbit. He loves his warm and comfortable home and his neighbors. There hasn’t been any knocks at the door, but one day, he was sure he heard one. He saw that it was an old man, with a long cloak and a long hat, who tuned out to be a wizard. With the wizard’s insights, he tracked the right, helpful hobbit to travel with in an important adventure with important tasks. However, Bilbo didn’t want any adventure, so he shooed the wizard back.

The next day, there were thirteen dwarves coming in with the wizard, as if they were the hobbit’s greatest old friends. Regardless of Bilbo’s dislike of too much company, he, the man, and the dwarves formed a crew, and started a mysterious journey. After, Bilbo finds amazing secrets that has been forgotten.

Tolkien tells that Bilbo is very kind and generous to the dwarves and the man, traveling and working very hard with them, although he felt a little unsafe with them. Tolkien really tries to persuade you to be generous to others, which I think that generosity is giving others help and to behave how they will be pleased.

This book scores a terrific advance on every reader and is a huge influence for kindness with fresh secret drops of warmth and beauty.
