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.

I love it !!!!! after you are done try lord of the rings.A little harder to read.

my mom read this book when she was a kid so I decided to read it. it's about a 50-year-old hobbit called Bilbo Baggins one day Gandolf the wizzard scratched a sign Bilbo's door and the next day a swarm of bearded gnomes comes to his house one at a time. if you want to know why then read the book.

I love the Ranger’s Apprentice series too, but my fav series of all time is definitely Harry Potter. This book was good, but I thought it was a little too detailed and confusing for me.

I know that everyone says that anyone who likes Harry Potter will like the hobbit, but I am a huge Harry Potter fan, and this was not one of my favorite books. A little to detailed and time consuming for me.


It's a story about a hobbit and dwarfs and a wizard. They go over the mountain and through the woods to get gold and treasures back from a dragon. They face many dangers such as goblins, orcs, giant spiders, trolls, and a dragon. If you like the Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings you should read this one. It was a great book. My favorite part was the giant spiders! I liked the adventures and the creatures!🐦All the characters are so fun to follow in the book! It is a great reading circle group book!! A mix of adventure and fun!
