There has been debates over whether J. R. R. Tolkien’s books, The Hobbit, or The Lord of the Rings, books were “better.” Personally, I think they are both brilliant books, and it really all depends what type of books you like to read.
The Lord of the Rings Trilogy are very detailed, and long books. They focus a lot of the books on small details, and it can get a bit repetitive. It has a well thought out storyline, but it takes a while to get through the details to finish it. The Hobbit is much more focused on the story, and does not repeat itself as much. It also has a variety of characters including many dwarves, and a dragon. It is more fast paced then The Lord of the Rings trilogy, and also has a good storyline.
I prefer The Hobbit book over The Lord of the Rings, because it was more to the point, and exciting. I also enjoyed the trilogy, it’s a refreshing book to read while travelling. I would highly recommend to give both a read! If you have not read either, I would suggest to read The Hobbit first, since it was written before The Lord of the Rings.
