The Hobbit Literary Paragraph
The Power Of a Classic
“A classic is a book that has never finished saying what it has to say”
I never understood how a book can have an effect on someone, but now I understand. The Hobbit has opened my eyes to the world of books, I understand now that a book can take me places and suck me into its own world, I am starting to feel the power of a book. Reading about the journeys of Bilbo Baggins has kept me more interested in a book than ever. The author, J.R.R Tolkien, managed to suck me into his own world, and I am captivated by the adventures of Bilbo and his friends. It took me a while to decide what book to read, I knew it had to be a classic, and I was not yet sure what book would keep me interested. I knew for sure that I did not want a book that would make it seem like torture to read; although it would have to be a very bad book for it to be like that. I wanted a book of adventure, and I narrowed it down to The Hobbit and The Adventures Of Huckleberry Finn. The one reason that made be lean towards The Hobbit, is that I thought Huck Finn would be too similar to The Adventures Of Tom Sawyer; Eventually, that decision payed off. I have never been as interested in a book as I am now; as a result, I now know what a classic book is really like, and the adventures it can take me on; subsequently, If I get an opportunity to read another classic, I will not turn down that chance. I was not confident that a classic book could really keep me interested; however, The Hobbit has changed that. This book has opened my eyes to more opportunities to read classics. I am very glad I had the opportunity to read this book for school and I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good classic book.
