Bingo Sac Grabbins is asked by the coughing wizard Gandef and some (oddly Welsh) dwarves to help them relieve the great dragon Smug of his gold. SF author and Tolkien scholar Adam Roberts has written a parody that is both hilarious and intelligent. With knowing digs at the fantasy genre in general and the mystique that has built around middle earth in particular this will make Tolkien's 21st century readers laugh in a way that BORED OF THE RINGS made his fans of 1969 laugh.… (más)

The Soddit, a parody of The Hobbit. Like Bored Of The Rings, I haven't read the original yet. I might do so in the future. Anyway, Bored Of The Rings was quite a funny book, all things considered. The Soddit, however, didn't offer that instant satisfaction. It took a while to get or appreciate the (often dry) humour.

Still, after some chapters the magic does begin to work. Obviously it's best to read such a book when you're in the mood for it, when you're in need of a laugh, especially, for example, after a stressful day.

The Soddit reads very easily, and while it's a parody, it does create the impression it's a serious book, too. Meaning it's not always easy not to sympathise with Bingo (Bilbo) and the dwarfs. Story-wise it's funny to read how Sollum (Gollum) and the spiders talk in a very philosophical manner. Something one wouldn't expect. Also entertaining is the influence of contemporary elements and terms (product placement, for example).

Oh, and, Gandef (Gandalf) changing into a dragon? Yes, there's a logic reason for that, based on evolution. ;-)

Afterwards there's - obviously funny - publicity for other related (fictional) works: you get a description of the story, and a small excerpt. There's also promo for parodies of e.g. Harry Potter, Oliver Twist, Mary Poppins, ... And even for the The Soddit Society or the fanclub.

While I may rate The Soddit a bit lower than Bored Of The Rings, especially when comparing the two, it shouldn't be done, as it's neither a follow-up, nor a sequel. If you liked BOTR, then by all means do read The Soddit as well. You won't regret it. :-) ( )

Very funny in places but don't think it was quite as funny as Star Warped and The Sellamillion.

A lot of the humour comes from the names of people and places. The map is really funny because some of the names link to other places nearby - at first they don't look like anything special but then neighbouring place names make it funny.

Think it would be really interesting to see how it would be written now it's been made into a film.

Liked Biorn, kind of saw that the Dwarves would be killed off one by one.

Wonder what Mr Click will make of it. ( )
