The book changed my life.
I remember being called to dinner after reading the section where the eagles rescued Bilbo and dwarfs from the tops of firey trees encircled by Wargs (massive, evil wolves) at the bases.
My heart was pounding, it was all I could talk about during that meal.
The words changed me. The words excited me. The words held my imagination captive.
That point in my life, as much as any other, led me to become a professional writer – which I’ve luckily been paid to do for more than two decades.
As silly as it sounds, words are my life – and that life got it’s first priming from my reading of story about a timid, hairy-footed midget named Bilbo Baggins.
I’m anxious to see producer/director Peter Jackson’s film interpretation of the epic book. He did a fantastic job, in my opinion, on The Lord of the Rings trilogy.
Here’s the second movie trailer released for The Hobbit, which will be in theaters this December.
