    John Ronald Reuel Tolkien was born on January 3, 1892, in Bloemfontein, South Africa. After serving in the First World War, he embarked upon a distinguished academic career and was recognized as one of the finest philologists in the world. He was a professor of Anglo-Saxon at Oxford, a fellow of Pembroke College, and a fellow of Merton College until his retirement in 1959. He is, however, beloved throughout the world as the creator of Middle-earth and author of such classic works as The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. He died on September 2, 1973, at the age of 81.

    Bilbo Baggins was a hobbit who wanted to be left alone in quiet comfort. But the wizard Gandalf came along with a band of homeless dwarves. Soon Bilbo was drawn into their quest, facing evil orcs, savage wolves, giant spiders, and worse unknown dangers. Finally, it was Bilbo–alone and unaided–who had to confront the great dragon Smaug, the terror of an entire countryside . . .

    This stirring adventure fantasy begins the tale of the hobbits that was continued by J.R.R. Tolkien in his bestselling epic The Lord of the Rings.

    • Just What I Ordered

      I had read this book years ago and wanted to read it again to refresh my memory before seeing the movie. The book was in excellent condition, was well represented and reasonably priced. Can't ask for more than that.

    • Better than I imagined

      I was told to read 'The Hobbit', then'Lord Of The Rings' so I'd have a better idea, or backstory, of the characters and the places in both of those stories. This story was better than I expected, partly because it explained so many of the things I'd seen in the 'Lord of the Rings' movies. On the other hand, it's a great action/adventure tale(one of the best I've read) that can stand on its' own. It's definetely worth the money, and will be a nice addition to anyone's library.
