Description

The English-speaking world is divided into those who have read The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit and those who are going to read them.

I love getting to know an author that way and being able to see little bits of their personality come out in their works (like the fact that Tolkien loved smoking a pipe--does all the pipe smoking in the book make more sense now? Two of my bookgroup friends chose to co-host these books, with an effort to find the "applicability.

R. Tolkien's three volume masterpiece is at once a classic myth and a modern fairy tale—a story of high and heroic adventure set in the unforgettable landscape of Middle-earth. He finds himself caught up in a plot to raid the treasure hoard of Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous dragon. At one point, Minas Anor and Minas Tirith are referred to as though they were separate cities; these are merely alternate names for the same city. After the book was finished, it was shared and landed itself in Gondor, where our favourite King resides.

Ebooks fulfilled through Glose cannot be printed, downloaded as PDF, or read in other digital readers (like Kindle or Nook). This new boxed gift set, published to celebrate the release of the first of Peter Jackson’s three-part film adaptation of JRR Tolkien’s The Hobbit, THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY, contains both titles and features cover images from both films. This central schism makes his work much less true to the tradition than Anderson's The Broken Sword, which was published the same year.At first the idea of following several characters quite separately may be quite unusual, even a little daunting. Samwise Gamgee, Frodo’s loyal companion, exemplified unwavering loyalty and unconditional friendship.

Tolkien just doesn't strike the same chord, so all hail Peter Jackson, and I'm afraid the books have largely been relegated to display-only on my bookshelf. You don't really suppose, do you, that all your adventures, and escapes were managed by mere luck, just for your sole benefit? You get a true feel for the scale and even the politics of such a creation by journeying through it with different companions, each with a different purpose. Says that Frodo and Sam later on learned the truth of what happened and made the necessary changes in their narration of Lord of the Rings. Tolkien was a professor at the Universities of Leeds and Oxford for almost forty years, teaching Old and Middle English, as well as Old Norse and Gothic.

In Rivendell, Bilbo translated the events of the Silmarillion and possibly got first hand information from people like Glorfindel.
