0: Hobbit, The

J.R.R. Tolkien
Now a major motion pictureA great modern classic and the prelude to THE LORD OF THE RINGS   Bilbo Baggins is a hobbit who enjoys a comfortable, unambitious life, rarely traveling any farther than his pantry or cellar. But his contentment is disturbed when the wizard Gandalf and a company of dwarves arrive on his doorstep one day to whisk him away on an adventure. They have launched a plot to raid the treasure hoard guarded by Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous dragon. Bilbo reluctantly joins their quest, unaware that on his journey to the Lonely Mountain he will encounter both a magic ring and a frightening creature known as Gollum.“A glorious account of a magnificent adventure, filled with suspense and seasoned with a quiet humor that is irresistible . . . All those, young or old, who love a fine adventurous tale, beautifully told, will take The Hobbit to their hearts.” – New York Times Book Review

More accessible than LOTR and containing more humor The Hobbit is the perfect entry into the world of Middle Earth.

  A fantastic story that really gets your imagination going! I really love this tale. The only thing that is strange to me is when Bilbo gets knocked out and events still go on without the experience of reading them. It's a short tale and is fun to compare the book to the new movies. You can pick this book up at the Colona Public Library! ~Ashley

It's truly hard to review a classic, since there's typically a reason why they're considered such. Most don't reach that status by being bad books, and Tolkien's The Hobbit is no exemption to that rule. It's charming, thrilling, emotional, and enjoyable all at the same time. Where Lord of the Rings has sometimes dense areas of prose, The Hobbit has flowing poetry that's sure to produce a child-like giddiness. If you haven't read it yet, there's no reason not to. Pick it up and give it a try.
