The Hobbit

By J.R.R. Tolkien & J.R.R. Tolkien
The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien & J.R.R. Tolkien digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

J.R.R. Tolkien's classic prelude to his Lord of the Rings trilogy...

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.

Expressionless Face“I'm sorry this was so boring. I present to you the entire story: 1. Hobbit gets dragged into a quest 2. Travels through mountains 3. Gets captured 4. Gets uncaptured 5. Travels through mountains again 6. Repeat #2-#5 about six times 7. Meets gollum at some point in between getting captured and obtains the ring 8. Finds smaug and treasure 9. Gets captured again 10. Defeats smaug 11. Then idk what because I stopped paying attention. Also... far, FAR too many songs.”
