This is the story of how a Baggins had an adventure, and found himself doing and saying things altogether unexpected....Bilbo Baggins is a hobbit who enjoys a comfortable, unambitious life, rarely travelling further than the pantry of his hobbit-hole in Bag End. But his contentment is disturbed when the wizard, Gandalf, and a company of thirteen dwarves arrive on his doorstep one day, to whisk him away on a journey 'there and back again'. They have a plot to raid the treasure hoard of Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous dragon...
"The Hobbit" is the prelude to "The Lord of the Rings" series, and should be read before "The Fellowship of the Ring".
