The Hobbit.

When my sister and I were kids, roughly 55 years ago, my Dad read The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings to us out loud. I’ve read them all a few times since then.

As some of you know, over the last two years, my wife has suffered a number of catastrophic and near-fatal illnesses, include stage 3 cancer, multiple organ removals, reconstructive surgeries, and a devastating stroke. She’s still with us, but I had to retire this past June from my job to care for her full time.

The stroke robbed her of much of her vision, so I’ve been reading to her since this past February when she was released from the hospital following this ordeal that began June 2021. I’ve read several books to her since then, and we just completed The Hobbit.

Reading this masterpiece out loud was a wonderful experience, bringing the characters, their voices and adventures to life. Parts of doing so brought me to tears while reading it. While, of course, I wish the circumstances were different, I’m grateful to have been able to read this wonderful book, which means so much to me going back to when my Dad read it to me, out loud to my beautiful but suffering wife.

So far a good read but i aren't to keen on the change of writing still from Horus Rising the first book in the series.
I think i would have prefered one Author to erite the whole series

Also recently finished the Winston Effect an absolute must read for any fan of Stan Winston Studios
I just had to share how "Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind" turned my academic life around. This book, filled with awe-inspiring insights into human history, completely altered my approach to college papers Not only did "Sapiens" provide me with a treasure trove of knowledge, but it also taught me how to think critically, connect historical dots, and weave captivating narratives. It's like having a secret weapon for acing essays and impressing professors.So, if you're looking to elevate your college paper game while delving into the fascinating story of our species, give "Sapiens" a shot. Trust me; it's a game-changer! Have any of you experienced similar academic revelations through a book? Share your stories below!

I am now planning to write an essay on this wonderful book. I was recommended to pay attention to online paper writing service . They work with experienced writers who specialize in literary analysis. They have great reviews and feedback from students, as well as the ability to order an essay on a specific book. They can help with developing a thesis statement, structuring the paper and provide a quality analysis of the work.
