Bilbo, a hobbit, wants nothing more then to be left alone surround by his things in his hill home. When Gandalf the wizard shows up with a bunch of dwarfs, Bilbo leaves with them in search of their lost treasure which was taken by the great dragon Smaug. On their journey they come upon many trials that make the little hobbit long from hot meals and the comforts of home. Bilbo stumbles upon a magic ring that makes him disappear when wearing it. This allows Bilbo the capability to seal the dwarf’s most prized treasure. Now that he has what the dwarf’s came for, will he give it back or has he just started a war?

I enjoyed getting to know Bilbo and his back story. This is my first of Tolkien’s books. I’ve seen ‘The Lord of the Rings’ movies several times and thought I’d give the books a try. Glad I started with the Hobbit. Well written, fun and very entertaining.
