Teaser Tuesday #20: The Hobbit

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!


MY TEASERS:

hobbit"There he lay, a vast red-golden dragon; fast asleep; thrumming came from his jaws and nostrils, and wisps of smoke, but his fires were low in slumber. Beneath him, under all his limbs and his huge coiled tail, and about him on all sides stretching away across the unseen floors, lay countless piles of precious things, gold wrought and unwrought, gems and jewels, and silver red-stained in the ruddy light."

The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien, p. 201

  3. See, teasers like that make it difficult for me to understand why I never really got into this book. Such a beautiful passage.

    Thanks for stopping by mine!

  8. I could never get into the Hobbit, I tried many times, I just watched the LOTR movies instead, lol, I know, not the same, but I guess the too much details, and strange ways of it were too much for me. Hope you enjoy it.
