“There is a lot more in him than you guess, and a deal more than he has any idea of himself. You may (possibly) all live to thank me yet.”
The Hobbit is a legendary story of courage and friendship set in “Middle Earth” – a fantastic land of Goblins, Elves, Dwarves and most notably Hobbits, of course.
Not known for their spirit of adventure, a young hobbit, Bilbo Baggins, is thrust into an adventure of the tallest proportions. The journey he takes is both physical and psychological as he learns to challenge himself like never before. Accompanied and encouraged by the wise wizard Gandalf and a merry band of Dwarves, an unlikely partnership is formed and over the course of 400 pages a thrilling adventure unfolds.
The Hobbit is an epic adventure – full of magic, adventure and an awesome conclusion.
A prelude to Tolkien’s seminal work, The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit is a great novel to introduce to a younger audience. Much shorter in length, it’s less dark and scary but no less exciting.
Published in 1937, The Hobbit is a classic work of literature, and a great one to introduce to each new generation.
