I enjoyed “The Hobbit“. It was as if the two hours and forty-something minutes was too short to have had the pleasure of taking part in an adventure.

I’m actually still reading this book and since it is Halloween for most Westerners, All Saint’s Day for us Third Worlders, this piece of work is a must. No it’s not something  you’ll gobble up like a movie, but rather, an in-depth look, more on reporting.

Read it. You’ll find the book very interesting.
