The Hobbit is a novel created by J. R. R. Tolkien in the custom of the fairy story. It was initially published on September 21, 1937.

Bilbo Baggins, the hobbit, is a peaceful kind who lives in a cozy hole in the Shire, a area where adventures are uncommon--and quite unwanted. So when the wizard of Gandalf whisks him away on a treasure looking journey with a troop of rowdy dwarves, he's not completely thrilled. Encountering ruthless trolls, beastly orcs, gigantic spiders, and hungry wolves, Bilbo discovers within himself astonishing strength and courage. And at the best confrontation with all the fearsome dragon Smaug, the hobbit usually brave the risks of dark and dragon-fire alone and unaided.

J.R.R. Tolkien's timeless and beloved story is presented in a stunning dramatization that resounds with the excitement of the theatre performance--and all charm of the vintage radio show. Originally conceived for BBC broadcast and yielded by the world's foremost creators of radio entertainment, this lavish creation melds a full cast with stirring music and sound effects to bring this splendid classic to existence.

About the Author J.R.R. Tolkien

John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, CBE (3 January 1892 – 2 September 1973) was an English author, poet, philologist, and college professor, ideal well-known as the writer of the classic significant fantasy functions The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Tolkien was Rawlinson and Bosworth Professor of Anglo-Saxon at Oxford from 1925 to 1945, and Merton Professor of English Language and Literature from 1945 to 1959. He was a close friend of C. S. Lewis – they were both members of the casual literary discussion group well-known as the Inklings. Tolkien was appointed a Commander of the Order of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth II on 28 March 1972.

After his death, Tolkien's son, Christopher, published a series of functions based on his father's extensive notes and unpublished manuscripts, including The Silmarillion. These, together with The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, shape a connected body of stories, poems, fictional histories, invented languages, and literary essays about an imagined planet called Arda, and Middle-earth within it. Between 1951 and 1955 Tolkien used the term legendarium to the bigger piece of these writings.

While other authors had published functions of fantasy before Tolkien, the perfect success of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings when they were published in paperback in the United States led straight to a prevalent resurgence of the genre. This has caused Tolkien to be popularly diagnosed as the "father" of contemporary fantasy literature—or more exactly, significant fantasy. Tolkien's writings have inspired other functions of fantasy and have had a durable impact found on the whole field. In 2008, The Times rated him sixth on a list of 'The 50 biggest British writers since 1945'.

The Hobbit, or There and Back Again is an award-winning fantasy novel and children's book by J. R. R. Tolkien, created in the custom of the fairy story. Tolkien wrote the story in the early 1930s to amuse his 3 sons. It was published on 21 September 1937 to broad important acclaim, being nominated for the Carnegie Medal and granted a prize within the New York Herald Tribune for ideal juvenile fiction. More lately, The Hobbit has been known as the "Most Important 20th-Century Novel (for Older Readers)" by the children's book magazine Books for Keeps. The book has sold an estimated 100 million duplicates internationally since initial publication.

The Hobbit is set in a time "Between the Dawn of Færie and the Dominion of Men", and follows the quest of home-loving Bilbo Baggins (the titular "Hobbit") to win his share of the treasure guarded by the dragon, Smaug. His journey takes him from light-hearted, rural surroundings into darker, deeper territory, meeting diverse denizens of the Wilderland along the technique. By accepting the disreputable, romantic, fey and adventurous side of his nature (the "Tookish" side) and applying his wits and good sense, Bilbo develops a new amount of maturity, competence and wisdom.

The story is told in the shape of an episodic quest: many chapters introduce a particular creature, or kind of creature, of Tolkien's Wilderland. The prose adventure is interspersed with songs and poetry, various of which serve to lighten the tone of otherwise frightening or dramatic scenes. The final chapters deal with all the climactic Battle of Five Armies, where most characters and creatures from earlier chapters re-emerge to engage in conflict. Critics have drawn parallels with Tolkien's own experiences and the themes of alternative writers who fought in World War I.

A sequel was requested by his publishers, and as function found on the The Lord of the Rings progressed, Tolkien created accommodations for it in 1 chapter of The Hobbit. These limited but substantial changes were integrated into the 2nd edition. Further editions followed, correcting minor mistakes and reflecting Tolkien's changing concept of the globe into which Bilbo stumbled.

The function has not been from print since the paper shortages of the Second World War. Its ongoing legacy encompasses various adaptations for stage, screen, radio, and gaming, both board and games. Some of these adaptations have received important recognition of their own, including a movie game that won the Golden Joystick Award, a situation of the war game that won an Origins Award, and an animated pic nominated for a Hugo Award.
