Description

These tales from the Third Age of Middle-earth contain the definitive version of the text, as edited by Christopher Tolkien. Kuduk becomes ‘hobbits’ and Maura, Ban, Razar, and Kali become Sam, Frodo, Merry and Pippin (I laughed so hard when I read this) and other words into digestible words in English.

Tolkien's brave little hairy toed Hobbits, awesome Gandalf the Grey, Aragorn, Tom Bombadil, Elf-lord Glorfindel, Half-elven lord Elrond, beautiful Arwen, Boromir, Lady Galadriel, Gimli the Dwarf, and Legolas the Elf. Immerse yourself in Middle-earth with Tolkien’s classic masterpiece, telling the complete story of Bilbo Baggins and the Hobbits’ epic encounters. Dec 2013: Rereading with my 2 oldest kids after seeing "Desolation of Smaug" (they wanted to read it, the 2nd hasn't read beyond "Hobbit" yet, and I wanted to check my memory since I didn't remember things the same way the directors of the movie seemed to ;) Also gave a challenge to them, as in, "I'll read these with you if you'll read through DICKENS with me, ha ha ha ha". Indeed, I didn't finish the trilogy until I was in my early 20s and I'm not ashamed to admit that I was actually quite proud of myself for having finally completed this mammoth journey with Frodo and his companions. Immerse yourself in Middle-earth with Tolkien’s classic masterpieces behind the films, telling the complete story of Bilbo Baggins and the Hobbits’ epic encounters with Gandalf, Gollum, dragons and monsters, in the quest to destroy the One Ring.This is not intended to be a full statement of all your rights under the Distance Selling Regulations. From older posts(6y old) I saw that the newer versions are inferior since they are printed in China and that it may be worth looking to get a 50th anniversary edition version.

The introduction of the one and only Shadowfax was another highlight for me, the main reason I was attracted to the films as a kid. Beginning with Bilbo’s fateful visit from Gandalf and culminating in the dramatic climax between Frodo and Gollum atop Mount Doom and Bilbo’s departure to the Grey Havens!Reading The Lord of the Rings was a really different experience from The Hobbit not only because it's got a more epic scope and deals with more POV characters, but also because I felt like it introduced me to "Mr Tolkien". Awarded the CBE and an honorary Doctorate of Letters from Oxford University, he died in 1973 at the age of 81. Boxed gift set of Tolkien’s classic masterpieces, fully illustrated throughout in watercolour by the acclaimed and award-winning artist, Alan Lee, Conceptual Designer on Peter Jackson’s THE HOBBIT films.
