The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien

I am the type that prefers to read a book before watching the movie adaptation and will go so far as to check if a movie is based upon a book if the trailer looks interesting. The first instalment of The Hobbit film adaptation is due out in December and before you see the movie, I would recommend reading the book which in some ways is a prequel to The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

The Hobbit tells the tale of the unadventurous hobbit Bilbo Baggins. One dark night he opens his door to the wizard Galdalf who invites Bilbo to accompany thirteen dwarves on their mission to recover treasure and land stolen from their ancestors, which is guarded by the dragon Smaug the Magnificent. He’s swept away from his safe hobbit hole at Bag End and off to Mirkwood and beyond to the Misty Mountains where he faces trolls, dragons, mysterious elves, and other incredible creatures. Read Bilbo’s tale before the Peter Jackson movie is released this December!
