    The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien (PitcherBooks)
    PitcherBooks: While I enjoyed The Hobbit a bit more than the Elven, I like The Elven much more than the LOTR. I have yet to read the sequels but Elven had the feel of a fantasy classic to it. Time will tell... Pros: Great world-building and characters, mostly action, adventure and magic with only the last tenth or so devoted to the obligatory war. Since I'm not big on wars this was a major plus. Con: The Hobbit was shorter, more endearing and faster moving. Elven is a lengthy tome but the characters and adventures held my interest even so.… (more)

Well...the beginning was fun. Then it kind of got boring. About 10% into the book I was ready to be done but then I kept reading and at about 20% I got interested again. It was good for awhile but then it tanked again. I think the main problem is it is too long...way too long. It is the kind of book where you just feel like you need to start skipping whole pages. The storyline is interesting and engaging but it needed a deep edit. Also, I really didn't like Noroelle...Really? All that for her? Not buying it... ( )

Die vielen Zeitsprünge waren überhaupt nicht nach meinem Geschmack. Und ich bin kein Fan von Schlachten und Duellen, die viel zu viel Seiten einnehmen. Ich habe die endgültige Schlacht meistens überfliegen.

Ansonsten fand ich die Welt als einfallsreich erschafft, nicht jedoch die meisten Charaktere. Nur Nuramon und Noroelle mochte ich. Mandred konnte ich nicht leiden. ( )

Dikke pil om te lezen, en af en toe wou ik het boek aan de kant gooien. Ben toch blij dat ik het uitgelezen heb.


Nu op zoek naar de overige delen ( )

Ein bewegender Roman, der die Fantasie beflügelt und spannend bis zum letzten Satz ist. Es prallen verschiedene Welten aufeinander, die sich zwischen Krieg, verbündetem Zusammenschluss und Freundschaft entscheiden müssen. Abenteuer und Liebe, die durch Zeitsprünge der Jahrhunderte, an Kraft und Spannung zunehmen. ( )

Durch den Wald im Mondenscheine

Sah ich jüngst die Elfen reiten:

Ihre Hörner hört' ich klingen.

Ihre Glöckchen hört' ich läuten.

Ihre weißen Rösslein trugen

Güldnes Hirschgeweih und flogen

Rasch dahin; wie wilde Schwäne

Kam es durch die Luft gezogen.

Lächelnd nickte mir die Königin.

Lächelnd im Vorübereilen.

Galt das meiner neuen Liebe,

Oder soll es Tod bedeuten.

'k Zag bij maan en starrenblinken
De Elfen, die het bos doortrokken;
Zilvren horens hoorde ik klinken,
En 't gelui van zilvren klokken.

Hun gespan droeg gouden manen,
Pijlsnel vloog de luchte wagen
Pijlsnel voort, als wilde zwanen,
Die in dartlen wedstrijd jagen.

Lachte niet de koninginne
Bij het vluchtig verder snellen?
Geldt die lach haar, die ik minne?
Zou die lach mijn' dood voorspellen?
