The Hobbit is a book full of adventures. Written by J.R.R. Tolkien, it's full of magical creatures and what seems like a medieval fantasy. It's about Mr.Bilbo Baggins, A hobbit that lives in a place called The Shire. He was a very boring hobbit and never did anything out of the ordinary, well that is until one day. Gandalf the Grey , a wizard, who knew Bilbo, came and had a little chat with Bilbo and the next day dwarves of all shapes and sizes appeared. Bilbo ended up running low on food. They planned on leaving at dawn. When Bilbo awoke the next morning, relieved they were gone. That was until Gandalf came and force him to go with him and the dwarves. So their adventure began.

Personally, I find this book very interesting. I'm into all these type of magic things and it always intrigued me. j.R.R. Tolkien is a amazing writer, with a very creative imagination. His books are very magical and intriguing. The Hobbit made way to the Lord of the Rings series, which is a amazing series all in its self. I recommend this book if your into magical creatures and adventures.
