C. S. Lewis Reviews The Hobbit, 1937

C. S. Lewis Reviews The Hobbit, 1937

My brother sent this article to me for a bit of fun, and I immediately shot back a snarky response about how unprofessional it was to run this piece without a disclaimer that the review was written by his drinking and sometimes dress-up buddy (see Interesting Literature’s post for more details). I was just being a smart aleck, of course, but it does beg some interesting questions about book reviews, especially now with some of the controversies regarding  book bloggers and trading favors for positive reviews. Any thoughts? Or is this review just too much to read to care?
