Description

Now a major motion picture

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

Customer Reviews

Fantastic

This is one of the greatest books ever. Tolkien is the master of fantasy and this is (in my opinion) his greatest triumph. It’s not as elaborate as LOTR but it will blow the mind of anyone who can recognize a great book.

Never gets old.

This is a must read for all! You will not be disappointed.

The Hobbit

Haven't read this in twenty years, found it as entertaining as I did then. Timeless is the only way to describe this book.
