The setting was remarkable beyond words, from the mountains to the landscape, it was a genuine original. This book was only the start of the trilogy to come. The Lord of the Rings trilogy has come close to what The Hobbit has accomplished, but only so close. This book alone has changed my standards regarding Sci-fi books, and I can proudly say this has been my most beloved book. Its status quo will always be maintained in my mind as well as many, many others.
I truly will applaud whoever can, if never, defy the standards of J.R.R Tolkien's work.
