Read the definitive edition of Bilbo Baggins' adventures in middle-earth in this classic bestseller behind this year's biggest movie.




I enjoyed this book a lot. Because of its adventures and different creatures e.g. levees, dwarves and hobbits. Also I like the twist of Biblo Baggins because first all he wanted to do was stay in his hobbit hole and not go on an adventures. Then at the end of the story he faced goblins and giants, he went on an adventure and was very brave.

Tolkien, creator of another Universe, cannot be equalled. Better even than the Galaxy far, far away.

If i could, i would rate this book 10000/10 stars. The book is much better than the movie. Although there are some challenging words dispersed in this book, you understand them instantly by understanding the context. This book brings out the adventurous side of me i never knew was there.

My favourite part of this story was when Bilbo and the dwarves went to the lonely mountains to go inside smaugs cave take all of the gold and woke up smaug making him go on a rampage. This story is about a dwarf who had never gone on an adventure before, dwarves were sent to his house by a wizard named Gandalf who set up a dinner before the dwarves set off the next day. They had convinced Bilbo after many tries to help them on this heroic adventure.
