The Hobbit is most likley the best book written by Tolkien. It has adventure that exceeds that of LOTR and is the the story of how Bilbo (Frodos cousin) comes across the ring and uses its magic in his adventures.
The story starts with Bilbo having to accomadate for 13 dwarves and a wizard Gandalf the gray. He is asked to join a quest and at first is resillient but in the end decices to go. He faces many mishaps and dangers and one of the largest battles middle earth has ever seen.
In conclution the Hobbit is a highly recomended book evev though it is smaller than the LOTR it has more adventure.

Enthralling and entertaining. That is how I would define J.R.R. Tolkien's 'The Hobbit'.

I only picked the book up this year after having it sit on my bookshelf for months and could not put it down. The book answers many of the questions that the 'Lord of the Rings' trilogy puts forward, such as where Bilbo got his set of "mithril rings" and where he got his famous sword, 'Sting'.

Having read the 'Lord of the Rings trilogy', I went to The Hobbit expecting that it could not even compete with LOTR as Tolkien's best works, but after finishing it I found that it was not only better than the Lord of the Rings, but IMO the best book Tolkien's written.

I have read all of Tolkiens books, and even though the hobbit is the shortest, it is definately the best. The story starts with Bilbo, being dragged along with a bunch of dwarves and a wizard, Gandalf. Throughout the beginning, Bilbo is ignored by the dwarves, and they tend to call him a 'burgular.'
The story continues, and Bilbo gets more popular when he finds the One ring, the centre of the LOTR trilogy.
I higly recommend this book to people of all ages. It is Tolkiens best work and is surely a fantasy classic!
