Bilbo Baggins never had any adventures-or didn't, until Gandalf persuaded him to go along with Thorin Oakenshield and his company of Dwarves to retrieve the Arkenstone treasure. During his journey, Bilbo finds a magic ring, helps the dwarves to escape from giants and wood-elves, and plays an increasingly important role in the relations between the five armies that gather in order to attempt to take their fair share of Smaug the Dragon's horde, returning to the Shire with plenty of stories to tell.

The beginning of the tale of Frodo's quest, picking up after Bilbo acquired the One Ring in The Hobbit, The Fellowship of the Ring masterfully sets up the epic journey he will embark upon to Mordor.

Born in South Africa and growing up in Great Britain, J.R.R. Tolkien, or Ronald as he was known, led a young life filled with uncertainty and instability. His father died when he was three years old and his mother shortly before reaching adolescence. Yet he excelled in academics and went on to become one of the most beloved writers of the 20th century, considered by many as the "father of modern fantasy literature."
