Product Description

Bilbo Baggins has no idea of the adventures in store, or the events he'll set off, when he agrees to accompany Thorin Oakenshield, the Dwarf-Lord, to the lair of Smaug the Dragon. Using his wits at each step along the way, the hobbit encounters wizards, elves, men, goblins, and a creature named Gollum, evading danger and helping to bring peace to the realm of Middle Earth.

The text in this edition is based on that first published in Great Britain by Collins Modern Classics (1998), and includes a note on the text by Douglas A. Anderson (2001) that explains the corrections made. 365 pages, softcover.

Publisher's Description

In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort.
Written for J.R.R. Tolkien’s own children, The Hobbit met with instant critical acclaim when it was first published in 1937. Now recognized as a timeless classic, this introduction to the hobbit Bilbo Baggins, the wizard Gandalf, Gollum, and the spectacular world of Middle-earth recounts of the adventures of a reluctant hero, a powerful and dangerous ring, and the cruel dragon Smaug the Magnificent. The text in this 372-page paperback edition is based on that first published in Great Britain by Collins Modern Classics (1998), and includes a note on the text by Douglas A. Anderson (2001). Unforgettable!

Editorial Reviews

"One of the most freshly original and delightfully imaginative books for children that have appeared in many a long day... The Hobbit is a glorious account of a magnificent adventure, filled with suspense and seasoned with a quiet humor that is irrestible... All those, young or old, who love a fine adventurous tale, beautifully told, will take The Hobbit to their hearts" The New York Times Book Review

    I am a hopeless Tolkien fanatic. And it all began here.When I was little, I was aware that there were movies in my house called Lord of the Rings, and that I was not allowed to watch them. I was easily scared then, so when The Hobbit appeared in my homeschool curriculum, I discovered that it was written by the author of the dreaded Lord of the Rings, and I flat-out refused to read it. No way was I subjecting myself to the terror and nightmares that must surely result from this kind of hard-core horror! After several weeks of begging and threatening from my parents, I tearfully consented to my doom, and sat down to get it over with.I read the whole thing that night; then I read it again the next day. I knew I had found something amazing, the most beautiful piece of writing I had encuontered since Narnia. Now that I'm older, I love this story even more. I'm still just a teen, and I know that most people won't respect my literary opinions, but please believe that if you do not read The Hobbit, you are denying yourself one of the most amazing books ever written. It may not be as adult-oriented as The Lord of the Rings, but Bilbo Baggins, who is one of those rare people who knows that "a good fire, a good meal, and a good friend are worth more than all the riches and glory of the world" (I would add a good book to that list)will resonate with anyone who has ever known real contentment. Highly reccommended.
