Of Hobbits and More
The holiday season is upon us, which means shorter days, colder weather, and the perfect opportunity to visit the Shasta Public Libraries to stock up on books and movies for those darker winter nights.
Of particular interest this season is the final installment in The Hobbit film trilogy: The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. I'll admit it right now: I am an unabashed Tolkien fan, of his books first and of the movies, a close second. I have read all his books and I've watched the films countless times. But I'm also willing to admit that fantasy books and films do not begin and end with Tolkien. There are many, many others worthy of equal (and some would say) greater recognition than Tolkien.
In light of this, compiled here is a very short list of books and films that provide an alternative to the world of Middle Earth.
Great Fantasy Books and Films
There are so many others! If you are interested in additional authors or films, please stop by the Reference Desk and a staff member can help you.
