The Hobbit was written by J.R.R. Tolkien. The story begins and ends in a village named Hobiton. The main characters are the Hobbit, dwarfs, Gandalf, and Smaug.
They leave Hobiton to defeat Smaug the dragon, and they get to rest at Gandalf's friend's house. They get caught by trolls. Later they get caught by giant spiders.
They get across the Misty mountains, getting caught by goblins along the way. Bilbo (the Hobbit) finds a ring. The ring has 3 books after this and I'm in the middle of the first one. They enter Mirkwood.
At the end, Bilbo gets home. But it was in the middle of his house getting sold! I really liked this book. And I think anyone who likes adventure books will like this book and the Lord of the Rings. That's the one I'm in the middle of.
