J.R.R. Tolkien's classic prelude to his Lord of the Rings trilogy...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.Written for J.R.R. Tolkien's own children, The Hobbit has sold many millions of copies worldwide and established itself as a modern classic.

"A great book that is the prequel to the Lord of the Rings, centering on the Uncle of Frodo Baggins named Bilbo. When a wizard adds him to a company of dwarves that are going on a journey to take back the mountain home, Bilbo will have a greater impact on history for witch he never understands!"
"Oh my god. Don’t get me started. It’s a waste of time to listen to me, just read the book."
