plot happen but in other places he gives a more general description. Most places make the reader have a picture in his brain of them, the author uses the appropriate words and gives good descriptions. It takes the story about a year to occur. It starts at the spring and ends in about the same time the year after. Parts of the story take place in every time of the day (and night). The mood is of fantasy world, where everything (like magic and huge treasures) can appear and happen. Author’s Style The words used in the book are not very complicated, but there are some words that are not longer in use, or used just in poets (such as ?ere’ in some dialogues). The style in which the dialogues are written depends on who is talking and when (e.g., when the Elvenking talked to Thorin

he did not treat him with respect (because elves hated dwarves) and so did Thorin because he was offended with his captivation). There was no suspense in the story, because of the author that destroyed it right at the beginning and with his hints all over the story, saying that the hobbit and his friends would win and get what they wanted. At the end it was clear that the good people are going to win the battle against the evil. The plot is not very complicated and it can be summarized by one paragraph or something like this. Critic’s Choice Although I like fantasy style, I did not really like this book. The book was the worst fantasy book I ever read, although I know that the author is considered to be one of the people that gave the fantasy style a great push. Even though the

book is well written there are some faults that make it boring and uninteresting (such as the lack of suspense that I already discussed before). Comparing this book to the ?Dragon Lance? series and especially the first, original ones, by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman the ?Dragon Lance? is much better. For this book to be more interesting some changes need to be made, like dropping all the notes that the author puts in about the characters. These notes that reduced the suspense made the book very boring and I even fell asleep once reading it. If you want to read a fantasy book, you should skip this one and read a book of Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman that are better authors. If this writer (died?) wants to continue writing, let it be, but he should not expect me to read it.
