Unexpected qualities of courage and cunning, and a love of adventure, propel Bilbo toward his great destiny . . . a destiny that waits in the dark caverns beneath the Misty Mountains, where a twisted creature known as Gollum jealously guards a precious magic ring.
I first watched the movie before decided to read the book. I should not have done that before I realized that nothing was similar between the book and the movie. I was a little bit disappointed but the story still stay the same . I really liked the story of Tolkien , and the idea that he created this story for his children , that’s so cute . I love that kind of behavior. The only negative point is that the scenes of action are less present in the book than the movie , in the book the narrator often speak and honestly I hate that when it speaks too much. It still remain a good book and I recommend it !
