Summary: "In a hole in the ground lived a hobbit...So begins J.R.R Tolkien's classic fantasy, The Hobbit. When Bilbo Baggins, a peaceful, tea-loving, pipe-smoking hobbit is suddenly interrupted one evening by a rowdy party of thirteen dwarfs and one wizard, his world is turned upside down and he goes on an adventure--a rather un-hobbit like thing to do. Along the way, Bilbo meets giant spiders, elves, a man who turns into a bear, goblins, and a dragon. But his biggest discovery is, perhaps, the one that seems smallest at the time. The accidental discovery of a ring after a chance encounter with the creature Gollum."-Summary by a WCU student
Reader Review: I would recommend this book because it is a well-written, fun adventure, and the movie was awesome.
