The book is about Bilbo Baggins. He makes friends with a band of dwarves and a wizard. The dwarves names are Balin, Dwalin, kili, Fili, Dori, Ori, Oin, Gloin, Bifur, Bofur, and especially the leader of the dwarves Thorin Oakenshield (you say his surname because he is very important) and the wizards name is Gandalf. They went on a journey. When they went on their journey they had lots of adventures. Bilbo finds a magic ring that turns anyone that is wearing it invisible and with that ring Bilbo saved the dwarves from many things including a massive spider attack, where the gigantic spiders were wrapping up the dwarves in spider thread but Bilbo just cut through the spider thread and killed most of the spiders. Now I will tell you the reason why they went on an adventure, it was because there was a dragon called Smaug who stole lots of people's treausure and the dwarves wanted to kill the dragon and get back the treasure. If you want to know more you have to read the book.
I liked this book because of the adventure and the magic also because on the way to the dragons mountain where the dragon lived they stayed at somebody called Beorn's house and he could change into any shape he wanted, I like the fact that people can change shape. The main characters were Bilbo the Dwarves and Gandalf. I'd recommend this book to seven and upwards.
