Why is this considered a classic? It seemed mediocre to me. Are the other books any better?
>>
it's shit. it's boring and badly written
>>
>>7592290
If it was written by a non-white, a non-male, or a non-heterosexual, then it wouldn't be remembered

I'm from /pol/. Everything is about race, gender, or sexuality. Take the redpill
>>
>>7592290
you just don't like the fantasy genre.
>>
>>7592314
literally the first thing you read when opening /lit/ is that this isn't /pol/. you can't frequent /lit/ with such terrible reading comprehension

The Hobbit is delightful, it's like reading a fairy tale. I wish there were more children's books like this, fables which don't speak down to children or try to shelter them from the danger of the world.

No one answered my second question.
>>
>>7592360
No one can answer your second question. Objectivity, and all that.
>>
>>7592362
I'll read that as caution not to waste my time.
>>
>>7592290
It's a classic of children's literature. You're probably too old and don't have the required sense of childlike wonder to compensate.

The other books were written for adults, so you might enjoy them more, but of course you can only find that out for yourself.
>>
>>7592372
yeah, i didn't bother with the rest after that fiasco

Its a comfy-core essential. But I can see why you wouldn't like it if you haven't read it as a kid.

That sounds more like the identitypolitics pill to me. What colour is that pill, anyway?

The Hobbit is great. It's my favorite book to re-read.
>>
>>7592900
Agreed, although not my favorite to re-read, it's up there.
>>
>>7592319
Everyone who unironically uses pill terminology is of lower intelligence, and doesnt understand the nuances of existence.

>/lit/ takes the obvious "satire" seriously
It's so obviously a mockery strawman, how do you fall for this shit?
>>
>>7592360
Yeah they are better now fuck off
>>
The Hobbit was written as a kids book and is still regarded as a kids book, even for fantasy standards.
>>
>>7593344
but doesn't it still put a lot of modern adult books to shame?
