[edit] Summary

This is the story of Bilbo Baggins, a Hobbit who wanted nothing but to be left alone in quiet comfort of his hobbit hole. But great adventures were in store for him. Traveling through distant lands, and facing terrifying creatures such as Orcs, Wargs, and Spiders, and picking up a magical ring along the way, he finally arrives at the Lonely Mountain, the legendary home of the Dwarves, and home of the dragon Smaug. Filled with beautiful descriptions, and wondrous imagery, The Hobbit serves as an introduction, for readers around the world, to the wonderful world of Middle-Earth.
