|The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey|
The Hobbit takes place 60 years before the events of The Lord of the Rings. The story began at the hobbit-hole of Bilbo Baggins, when Gandalf the Grey asked him if he would like to go on an adventure. Bilbo, however, declined, as Hobbits generally prefered to stay comfortably at home. Nevertheless, Gandalf returned the next day with thirteen Dwarves, Thorin Oakenshield, Dori, Nori, Ori, Balin, Dwalin, Fili, Kili, Oin, Gloin, Bifur, Bofur, and Bombur. Their quest was to reclaim their home, gold, and kingdom under the mountain taken by Smaug, the fearsome dragon. Moved by their plight, Bilbo agreed to accompany them on an adventure that would change his life forever.
