-GoodReads;
 Bilbo Baggins was a hobbit who wanted to be left alone in quiet comfort. But the wizard Gandalf came along with a band of homeless dwarves. Soon Bilbo was drawn into their quest, facing evil orcs, savage wolves, giant spiders, and worse unknown dangers. Finally, it was Bilbo-alone and unaided-who had to confront the great dragon Smaug, the terror of an entire countryside . . .
This stirring adventure fantasy begins the tale of the hobbits that was continued by J.R.R. Tolkien in his bestselling epic The Lord of the Rings.


Review:
** spoiler alert **  
 O! God. This is overwhelming. I am laughing, going mad and above all crying.
This is too much happiness for me to take the path of a journey that once been taken by one of my favorite Hobbit ever Mr. Baggins which I am so proud of; he never imagined that his Took side of the family might might take over him one day when he leave his house one morning to catch up the 13 dwarves who been uninvited to his Hobbit's hall but yet they spent the whole night eating and sings making it uncomfortable for any Hobbit and more over there invitation to him. He even left without his pocket handkerchief. I believe it is unbelievable for a Hobbit but so as Gandalf said Bilbo is the lucky number ; he was.
Starting the journey he was frighten adding to the new path he took that no Baggins but might be a Took have taken once before. To Rivendell where he got to meet the elven kings under the sky, to the heart of the the misty mountains and meeting the very forgotten creature Gollum that he challenged for riddle or Bilbo would be eaten. Bilbo won his life but above all he won the ring that mad him walk through shadows, he tricked the goblins and with his ring saved the life of the dwarves many countless time; that he turned to be the most important fellow of the 15. Meeting eagles and Dragon! He was the only brave to meet and even speak with the mighty dragon (poor Bilbo or poor us? that we never though how a small fellow of a Hobbit can change the face of the earth and history within?)

What tricked me is the leaving of Gandalf who as always shows up in the right time ("A wizard is never late, nor is he early, he arrives precisely when he means to.") but within Tolkien's writing every thing is for a reason, the whole story line is perfect and I shall write more to this review when my heart rest from the excitement of the journey.
The great battle of five races at the end was an epic even if the story taller got knocked out before he sees the end.

R.I.P. Thorin Oakenshield, Kili and Fili.
