This is a great book!  Those who like suspence and action will like this book.  It's about a hobbit, a wizard, and dwarves.

They go to get the dwarves treasure back from the dragon. And on the way the Hobbit finds a ring that makes whoever wears it invisible.

P.S. This is the begining of the Lord of the Rings triologyWink

I am a LOTR fan, but I read this first and LOVED it! Bilbo is great, and my favorite dwarf is Balin. If Balin is anyone else's favorite, comment!Cool

Fili and Kili rule.

But they are no more *sniff, sniff*

Oh and if you like Balin and you read the first LOTR book, be prepared to be sad.

No more spoilers from me! Sealed

Sounds cool. I like The Lord of the Rings movies, so I guess I'd like the book.

Yes I am definitely obessed with The Hobbit ( and Lord of the Rings). I think its great and the story is somewhat inspiring. Not saying that someone can change but that change can come to anybody, and the amazing potential you have dosen't matter if you're a hobbit or a dwarf or an elf.

So now I'm writing a sci-fi.

I don't know if it will be good but it's the try that makes it count.

P.S. ( Fili and Kili are the best R.I.P)
