The Hobbit : The Enchanting Prelude to The Lord of the Rings
A classic, a must have book


This, in combination with The Lord of the Rings, are hands down the greatest books I have ever read, and probably ever will read. This collectors edition is beautiful, and Alan Lee captures the essence of Tolkien magnificently in his illustrations. You can't go wrong with this ;)

J.R.R. Tolkien Boxed Set (The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings)
This is the one of the best books in the world!


J.R.R. Tolkien.... My personal favorite author. I have only read two books I enjoy more then the lord of the rings. I just hope they do not mess up the movies too bad. The hobbit is a wonderful book full of little creatures like hobbits and dwarves and eagles. If you are looking for a great book to read try J.R.R. tolkiens books. They are worth reading

Another Reader's 2 Cents (into an overflowing account)


Although Tolkien's work scarcely requires further comment, I feel obligated to pay homage to the father of the modern fantasy genre. The impact of his work on literature is incalculable, and I might venture to say that it created the entire fantasy subculture as a byproduct. No one can be considered an educated person without reading the Lord of the Rings; their influence is that great. But The Lord of the Rings shouldn't be read simply because of it's importance to literature- it's a work of art, beautifully written, and should be appreciated as such. This particular edition is absolutely stunning, and the illustrations a works of art in and of themselves. I highly reccomend these books as a gift to any reader.

The Hobbit : The Enchanting Prelude to The Lord of the Rings
Beats the pants off of Harry Potter!


I read The Hobbit many years ago, but now, reading it to my eight-year-old daughter, I've realized what a fine piece of literature this is. Unlike the Lord of the Rings trilogy (which are darker and more complicated), The Hobbit is suitable for most children of elementary school age (I'd say third grade and up, generally). While there is danger and adventure (and some very unsavory characters), there is not much violence or bloodshed. We have enjoyed the beautifully illustrated (by Michael Hague),large, softcover edition, published by Houghton Mifflin. If you can find this edition, buy it --- with the caveat that a couple of the illustrations are a bit scary, at least to younger siblings!

The Lord of the Rings (Leatherette Collector's Edition)
The Fantasy Template--- Here's How It's Done


I can remember how impressed with myself I was for reading the whole work in the late sixties. Now when I go back to this trilogy I'm amazed at what a model of compact efficiency it is! (If only Robert Jordan could get to the point this quickly). Some groundbreaking works don't age well; their ideas are expanded and improved by those who come after. But Tolkein is a scholar, a thinker, and a gifted writer, and no one who's copme along since can handle this kind of material as well as he did. The writing is beautifully crafted, the characters vivid, and the tale built on a solid foundation of mythic story-telling. You read golden age SF so that you can understand the roots of what came later, but you read the Lord of the Rings because it's just that good. A timeless classic, this, so good that I'll take the time to write this review even though it will probably go unread and unclicked simply because this work DESERVES to have a boat-load of glowing reviews attached.

The Two Towers (The Lord of the Rings, Book 2)
It's almost as if you were there ...


This set is long, but worth it. Rob Inglis creates a series of voices for the characters that bring them to life. I haven't seen the movie yet, but this is one of the best audiobooks I have heard!

It's incredible how Tolkien set it all up, and described the people so well you almost knew them.

Lord of the Rings Boxed Set


I decided to purchase and read the boxed set of Lord of The Rings after seeing the first movie. My brother had picked up the DVD and I watched it one day. After finishing it I decided I couldn't wait for the next movie release and purchased the box set. I read all 4 books including the first of which I had already seen the movie. The main experience I took from reading the books was that they were more enjoyable then the movies. The movies were very impressive but the detail that is given in the books is unmatched. I would recommend this set for anyone who has or has not seen the movies, and to all readers as it is a great read.

The Hobbit : The Enchanting Prelude to The Lord of the Rings
Great for just about everyone


The Hobbit is a book that can be enjoyed by all, but is mainly appreciated by two very seperate audiences. As a fairy tale style story it can be read to young children and generally enjoyed, but the true depth of the story is mainly appreciated by those old enough to read between the lines and understand what an amazing and detailed world Tolkien has created and placed this story in.Unfortunetly, the "bed-time story" style of writing can put off some older and most young adult or teen readers who find the book too childish for their likings. To anyone who feels this way after reading through a few pages all I can say is this - allow yourself to get past the all of that. Pay attention to the great characters and excellent story. And then look deeper and appreciate the wonderful and deep world Tolkien has created. From Bilbo's Hobbit-hole to the Last Homely House to Smaug's Lair every location is detailed and rich with character.If you haven't read The Hobbit, go read it right now. If you've already read it, then I'm sure you can understand everything I'm saying. If you don't, then read it again. This is a book that, on the first read, is an incredibly entertaining, original, and creative story. And every subsequent read allows you to peel away more layers and see deeper into the world of Middle-earth. And once you begin to see just how incredible a place it is, you should go on and read The Lord of the Rings - a novel that allows you to delve even further into the mythology and provides yet another eminently enjoyable story that anyone can (and should) love.

The Lord of the Rings
The Ultimate Novel


For lovers of Fantasy (i.e. magic, and sorcerers e.t.c) this book is a MUST READ. It deals with the genre in a mature, practical way. It is the greatest fantasy book ever written. For general readers, this book is a MUST READ too! As it says on the back cover: "The English-speaking world is divided into halves. Those who have read the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings, and those who are going to." For Star Wars fans, this book is a must read too, because this is where George Lucas got his inspiration. Do not be daunted by the size of this story. It is one long story, but it keeps you hooked all the way. A person's life isn't complete without reading Lord of The Rings! Some people have made a few outrageous claims and said the book is racist/or male-chauvinistic. All I can say to these people is that they are looking to find the slightest pre-text to get offended. This book is a fantasy book, and as the writer himself mentions he just wanted to write a story, and there are no allegorical references of ANY KIND. Take this story for what it is. Just a story, and a FICTIONAL one at that. Happy Reading!
