When Bilbo Baggins, a hobbit, goes on an adventure with a group of dwarfs and a wizard, he doesn't know who he is or what he is. The most obvious answers to these questions are: he is an average young man and he is a hobbit. But no. In this book, J.R.R. Tolkien shows you how wrong you are when you think that simply about Bilbo. Bilbo has adventures which entertained me for hours. I liked this book because there was always another adventure just around the corner. Every child should read this book, but I think that adults would enjoy it just as much.
