A great modern classic and the prelude to THE LORD OF THE RINGS   Bilbo Baggins is a hobbit who enjoys a comfortable, unambitious life, rarely traveling any farther than his pantry or cellar. But his contentment is disturbed when the wizard Gandalf and a company of dwarves arrive on his doorstep one day to whisk him away on an adventure. They have launched a plot to raid the treasure hoard guarded by Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous dragon. Bilbo reluctantly joins their quest, unaware that on his journey to the Lonely Mountain he will encounter both a magic ring and a frightening creature known as Gollum.

“A glorious account of a magnificent adventure, filled with suspense and seasoned with a quiet humor that is irresistible . . . All those, young or old, who love a fine adventurous tale, beautifully told, will take The Hobbit to their hearts.” – New York Times Book Review

    The Hobbit is underrated amongst Fantasy books. In my opinion it reads a lot better than The Lord of The Rings Books. I enjoyed this one from beginning to end with no complaints. I highly recommend it.
  • Book is excellent!

    (Sorry if there is any typos) This book is very well written and has some good morals too. The book has some twists and turns and some action. 5/5!
  • Greatest Book written by mankind

    I as a child, have read multiple books about adventures, which are most pleasing and “action packed”. Out of all those books, none compare to “The Hobbit”. A friend of mine recommended the book to me, and now I see why. I now recommend The Hobbit to you, and I most hope for you to rear it.
