It all started when Bilbo Baggins of the shire invites the wizard Gandalf to tea. When thirteen dwarves show up for the party, Bilbo goes on a wonderful journey across middle earth for the treasure the dragon Smaug hoards. Along the way he makes friends and foes and gains a ring.
My first impression on this book was that it was slow and boring, but after i got into it i loved this book. the characters are incredible and funny on occasion.The action is amazing and the plot is always twisting and surprising. I'm glad that this was the only English book i could find at the airport in Amsterdam.
I would recommend this book to every fantasy/action fan out there. the beginning is a bit slow but after the first chapter and a half it is entertaining and very musical.
P.S. There is also a movie coming out watch the trailer here
