The Hobbit

By J. R. R. Tolkien


J.R.R. Tolkien’s classic prelude to The Lord of the Rings trilogy—now available in a movie tie-in edition paperback.

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.

Written for J.R.R. Tolkien’s own children, The Hobbit has sold many millions of copies worldwide and established itself as a modern classic.

  1. Avatar Xenothaulus says:

    Good book, but far surpassed by The Lord of the Rings. The movie adaptation is using a new technique, filming at 48 frames per second, instead of the usual 24. I am interested to see how this affects its presentation.

    1. That’s something that’ll be more apparent in the Movie theater than the Home theater… though for once the DVD release will be downsampled instead of upsampled. 🙂
