"In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit." From "The Unexpected Party" in the Shire to "The Last Stage" home again we journey with the far-wandering Mr. Bilbo Baggins across Middle Earth as he is reluctantly caught up in the quest for unimaginable treasure. With thirteen dwarves the hobbit faces bickering trolls, evil orcs, terrifying Wargs, hideous spiders, deception and, finally, the dragon Smaug. Bilbo is chosen by the wizard Gandalf as the burglar necessary to complete the expedition to the Lonely Mountain. Though he feels like (and is often treated as) excess baggage Gandalf's choice is prescient. He reluctantly grows into his role aided by a magic ring--The Magic Ring as it turns out. This is a tale which grows in the telling. The characters are lifted out of fairy stories but their motives and emotions are complex and compelling. Read it again. For the seventh time.
