Description

This is the story of how a Baggins had an adventure, and found himself doing and saying things altogether unexpected…

‘A flawless masterpiece’
The Times

Bilbo Baggins is a hobbit who enjoys a comfortable, unambitious life, rarely travelling further than the pantry of his hobbit-hole in Bag End. But his contentment is disturbed when the wizard, Gandalf, and a company of thirteen dwarves arrive on his doorstep one day, to whisk him away on a journey ‘there and back again’. They have a plot to raid the treasure hoard of Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous dragon…

The prelude to THE LORD OF THE RINGS, THE HOBBIT has sold many millions of copies since its publication in 1937, establishing itself as one of the most beloved and influential books of the twentieth century.

Reviews

‘One of the best loved characters in English fiction… a marvellous fantasy adventure’
Daily Mail

‘Finely written saga of dwarves and elves, fearsome goblins and trolls… an exciting epic of travel, magical adventure, working up to a devastating climax’
The Observer

‘A flawless masterpiece’
The Times

‘The greatest children’s book ever written… Funny, frightening, dense with detail and gloriously vivid, it is the one adventure story every eight-year-old should have.’
Amanda Craig, The Times

‘The English-speaking world is divided into those who have read The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings and those who are going to read them.’
Sunday Times

    Have the book on paperback. Read it a couple of years ago now reading it again. I love it! The way Tolkien writes is just amazing; I can't put the book down. I was dismayed when I watched The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and The Desolation of Smaug because it's so different. I hate how they put the White Orc in (and the Orcs in general) because there was nothing of the sort in the book. Also, why have they put the film into 3 parts? The book isn't that long, but each film is about 2hours and 50 mins long. Oh well. Looking foreword to reading The Lord of the Rings.
  • Excellent book!

    Purchased my IPad Air very recently with the intention of restarting my love of reading . This is one of the first books I downloaded and I'm afraid to say it has made the film seem like a very pale imitation . The book transported me to lands both wonderful, magical and full of terror yet always with dazzling detail ! As well as this , it introduced characters that you cared about while letting you inside their thoughts . Recommend this book for an excellent read when you feel like getting away from it all . I did read it at school however that was a good few years ago , so nice to be able to revisit Mr Baggins once more !
  • Brilliant book
