A Hobbit Devotional

Author: Ed Strauss

Genre: Devotional

Series: Well, of course, it fits right in with Hobbit, but it’s not part of a series

My rating on a 1-10 scale: 8.5 (a high 8.5)

Type: Non-fiction (I suppose…yeah…)

Number of pages: 316

My overall opinion: I enjoyed it quite a lot! A good book. I was a little afraid when I first got it that I would find it too preachy – I don’t enjoy books like that. But it wasn’t too preachy, and the parallels were well thought out. There were plenty of quotes and paraphrases from The Hobbit. I think that anyone who’s a Hobbit fan will enjoy this book, even if you don’t usually read devotionals (I don’t). Contains 60 short chapters (readable in five minutes or so) – each chapter opens with a bit of Bilbo’s journey (or occasionally some history about the book) then neatly and smoothly segues into a connected devotional. I recommend it for any lover of Hobbit, especially Christians. It’s an excellent read.

**I reviewed this book for the publisher, Barbour Books. I was not required to give a positive review, nor was I recompensed in any way for this review. The opinions expressed herein are my own. I received a free copy of the book, but nothing else.**
