The Hobbit

Though I don’t have time to read many books, recently I purchased the paperback version of The Hobbit. Unlike The Lord of The Rings, The Hobbit is a much shorter story. I have to say that it’s very engaging and exciting though things don’t progress as quickly as the movies. The Hobbit movie is most likely to be screened in 2007.

The Hobbit focuses one on hobbit – Bilbo Baggins – uncle of Frodo Baggins and son of Bungo Baggins.

Initially, Bilbo Baggins didn’t like to travel because Baggins were very respectable not only because they were very rich but also because they never had any adventures. Gandalf and the dwarves have to convince him to join them for an adventure. Along the way, he traveled to many great places. He also found the One Ring and beat Gollum in a riddle competition.

If you are a fan of J.R.R. Tolkien, you may want to consider buying the The Hobbit Collector’s Edition in Hardcover.
