Publishers Description
This lavish gift edition of J.R.R. Tolkien's classic features cover art, illustrations, and watercolor paintings by the artist Alan Lee. 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.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great, great, great book.  Jun 9, 2008
If you have never read this, buy this book. At the very least, borrow it from someone.
An adventure for all ages  Jun 7, 2008
I first read The Hobbit in eighth grade, on recommendation from a friend of mine (whom I am extremely grateful for, since it was my introduction to a world I have never managed to find my way back from and never want to). Though it may seem a little slow-moving at first, it is actually an excellent adventure story, though perhaps a bit much for younger children to attempt to read for themselves. (However, reading it aloud to them is strongly recommended!) Bilbo is a likable character, easy to relate to, because all of us want to go out and have adventures and slay dragons, and yet we also enjoy the comforts of home a bit too much. Gandalf is appropriately mysterious and yet somehow feels like a loving grandfather, and the Dwarves are endearing and bring a smile to your face. Even if you don't like fantasy, give this book a try. Who knows, it could end up being your new favorite.
This is a Must-Read  May 27, 2008
The Lord of The Rings, everlasting masterpiece of Tolkien, begins here. Therefore, anyone interested in reading LOTR must read The Hobbit first. Why and when the Shire-folk got involved in the War for the Middle Earth? How does Bilbo Baggins becomes the bearer of The One Ring for while?
Besides, it't more than time we stimulate our youngsters with this excellent quality reading.
So, I read it for my son when he was about 9, and now, I purchased his own The Hobbit, which he is already reading. I expect he will read LOTR in the sequence, and I shall buy it here, at this site!
this site, thanks for being an excellent connection channel between me (in Brazil) and my 13 year old son (in USA).
The Hobbit  May 11, 2008
The Hobbit is a fairly good book. It has an interesting storyline an grabs the reader throughout the whole novel. I for one read it when I was in 5th grade at school. I found it interesting and usually was a chapter or two ahead of the class. The Hobbit is a beginning book. What I mean by this is that it takes a lot of time explaining the story. This takes up a couple of chapters and I think it would have been a better book if it had built some more suspense in the end scene and extrapolated it a bit more. But otherwise, this book has few shortcomings. Other than the fact that they spent a lot of time in Mirkwood forest, I liked the book. Beorn was portrayed well. The plot line is nice, although there is a kill stealing at the end. All-in-all, I recommend this book
A wonderful introduction to the world of Tolkien  May 2, 2008
I am the type of reader who will pick up a book and spend months reading it. I go through books in different cycles. Sometimes I can't put them down. Sometimes it takes me forever to finish them. In regards to The Hobbit, I can say that I have read and reread this wonderful book many times. While I have read The Lord of the Rings trilogy, and most would curse me in some form of literary blasphemy, I have to admit that I enjoyed this book more than the trilogy. If I remember correctly I've read it about five or six times. (Coming from a very inconsistent reader, it has to be a pretty good recommendation.) While I loved the trilogy, I did find that the pacing of The Hobbit to be much better, and aside from the fact that this book was geared more towards children, I found the story to be exciting and very entertaining to read. (I suppose I am a bit biased since I watched the cartoon movie from when I was a child and this film greatly fascinated me, enough to end up reading the novel.) Regardless of the fact that this novel was geared towards a younger audience, one can't deny that it holds its own as a great tale of adventure and personal growth. Bilbo Baggins' transformation is one that all readers can relate to. One can't deny the impact Tolkien's work has had on the world of literature, and this piece is no exception. In all this book is a wonderful introduction to the world of J. R. R. Tolkien's Middle Earth and whether or not readers venture into his other books, they will find this one to be entertaining and exciting to read.
