The Hobbit Or There and Back Again J. R. R. Tolkien Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (

This beautifully presented collector's box of JRR Tolkien's The Hobbit is a must for fans of this timeless classic and anyone looking to learn more about the story that started it all. Included in this box is a nicely bound hardback edition of The Hobbit and a collection of eight colour postcards featuring some of Tolkien's own artwork. Tolkien himself makes yet another guest appearance on an exclusive CD which features a recording of Tolkien reading an extract from Bilbo's first encounter with the terrifying Gollum. Lastly, there is a beautifully painted foldout map of Wilderland by John Howe with text by Brian Sibley. Those who are fans of The Hobbit will feel justified in splashing out again for this lovely collector's item, which offers plenty of value and makes for an affordable treat or gift for a fellow Tolkien lover. --Jon Weir "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." The hobbit-hole in question belongs to one Bilbo Baggins, an upstanding member of a "little people, about half our height, and smaller than the bearded dwarves." He is, like most of his kind, well off, well fed, and best pleased when sitting by his own fire with a pipe, a glass of good beer, and a meal to look forward to. Certainly this particular hobbit is the last person one would expect to see set off on a hazardous journey; indeed, when Gandalf the Grey stops by one morning, "looking for someone to share in an adventure," Baggins fervently wishes the wizard elsewhere. No such luck, however; soon 13 fortune-seeking dwarves have arrived on the hobbit's doorstep in search of a burglar, and before he can even grab his hat or an umbrella, Bilbo Baggins is swept out his door and into a dangerous adventure. The dwarves' goal is to return to their ancestral home in the Lonely Mountains and reclaim a stolen fortune from the dragon Smaug. Along the way, they and their reluctant companion meet giant spiders, hostile elves, ravening wolves--and, most perilous of all, a subterranean creature named Gollum from whom Bilbo wins a magical ring in a riddling contest. It is from this life-or-death game in the dark that J.R.R. Tolkien's masterwork, The Lord of the Rings, would eventually spring. Though The Hobbit is lighter in tone than the trilogy that follows, it has, like Bilbo Baggins himself, unexpected iron at its core. Don't be fooled by its fairy-tale demeanor; this is very much a story for adults, though older children will enjoy it, too. By the time Bilbo returns to his comfortable hobbit-hole, he is a different person altogether, well primed for the bigger adventures to come--and so is the reader. --Alix Wilber

« Dans un trou dans la terre la a vecu un hobbit. Un trou Pas mechant, sale, humide, rempli d'extremites des vers et d'une odeur oozy, ni pourtant d'un trou sec, nu, arenace avec rien a dans lui s'asseoir sur ou manger c'etait un hobbit-trou, et ce signifie le confort. » Le hobbit-trou en question appartient a un Bilbo Baggins, un membre droit « des lutins, environ la moitie de notre taille, et plus petits que les nains barbus. » Il, comme les la plupart de son aimable, bon, bien est alimente, et mieux heureux en se reposant par son propre feu avec un tuyau, un verre de bonne biere, et un repas pour attendre avec interet. Certainement ce hobbit particulier est la derniere personne une compterait voir l'ensemble sur un voyage dangereux ; en effet, quand Gandalf que le Gris s'arrete par un matin, « recherchant quelqu'un pour partager dans une aventure, » Baggins souhaite ardamment le magicien ailleurs. Aucune une telle chance, cependant ; bientot 13 nains qui recherche la fortune sont arrives sur le seuil des hobbit a la recherche d'un cambrioleur, et avant qu'il puisse meme saisir son chapeau ou un parapluie, Bilbo Baggins est balaye sa porte et dans une aventure dangereuse. Le but des nains est de retourner a leur demeure ancestrale dans les Montagnes Isolees et de reprendre une fortune volee du dragon Smaug. Le long de la route, elles et leurs araignees geantes de rassemblement reticent de compagnon, elfes hostiles, loups voraces--et, le plus perilleux de tous, une creature souterraine a appele Gollum dont Bilbo gagne un anneau magique dans un concours resolvant. Il est de ce jeu de la vie-ou-mort dans l'obscurite qui J.R.R. Le chef d'oeuvre de Tolkien, Seigneur des Anneaux, jaillirait par la suite. Bien Que Le Hobbit soit plus leger dans le ton que la trilogie qui suit, elle a, comme Bilbo Baggins lui-meme, fer inattendu a son noyau. Ne soyez pas dupe par son comportement de conte de fees ; c'est vraiment beaucoup une histoire pour des adultes, bien que des enfants plus ages l'apprecient, aussi. Avant que Bilbo revienne a son hobbit-trou confortable, il est une personne differente totalement, bien amorce pour que les aventures plus grandes viennent--et est ainsi le lecteur. --Alix Wilber Entre la sortie de film de Harry Potter et Le Seigneur des Anneaux, c'est la saison du film magique, et cet audiobook est un avantage supplementaire inevitable. Les lecteurs Innombrables ont grandi sur les aventures des petits hobbits velus qui implorent la bonne nourriture et un lit chaud, mais s'enroulent emprisonne en cavernes, attaque par des araignees et charge par un assortiment dizzying des aventures deloyales. Tandis Que les histoires sont tout a fait complexes, le message de bon triompher du mal est toujours evident. Ce theme attrayant des obstacles de franchissement pietines est ce qui garde l'attention des auditeurs. Il y a tellement action sur cette dramatisation que les auditeurs peuvent souvent se sentir tires dedans beaucoup de directions. Les narrateurs, y compris Ray Reinhardt comme Bilbo et Bernard Mayes comme Gandalf, s'engagent, et les effets sonores (bruits y compris dans la caverne ou la foret, ou les hobbits s'asseyant a un repas) sont egalement tout a fait forts. Mais ces pas deja au courant de l'histoire peuvent la trouver difficile de distinguer les divers caracteres ou de maintenir toute l'action. Les Auditeurs voudront probablement lire le livre avec l'ecoute, ou peut-etre ecoutez et observez alors le film. Les bandes sont presentees dans une boite en bois a l'air rustique, faisant cet approprie pour donner de cadeau.

Le must de Tolkien Tout simplement un chef d'oeuvre de Tolkien, a lire absolument en parallele au seigneur des anneaux pour en connaitre tous les tenants et les aboutissants. Le lire en Anglais permet de saisir toute la puissance de Tolkien perdue a la traduction. Superbe Je l'avais lu en francais, mais aucun editeur de ce cote de la Manche n'a eu la decence de le publier dans une edition luxueuse. Celle-ci est superbe sous tous les sens, puisqu'elle inclut un papier a fort grain, une reliure en cuir et les dessins de J.R.R. Tolkien lui-meme. Malgre tout, une grande sobriete s'en degage. Un beau livre pour un conte inoubliable. Un must... Que dire sur cette merveille, si ce n'est que les connaisseurs sauront apprecier les gravures de Tolkien lui-meme, l'inscription du titre en elfique sur la tranche, etc.

First published in the United States more than sixty years ago, J. R. R. Tolkien's The Hobbit has become one of the best-loved books of all time. Tolkien's fantasy was then adapted into a fully painted graphic novel, which became a classic in its own right... The enchanted prelude to The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit is the story of Bilbo Baggins, a quiet and contented hobbit whose life is turned upside down when he joins the wizard Gandalf and thirteen dwarves on their quest to reclaim stolen treasure. It is a journey fraught with danger—and in the end it is bilbo Baggins alone who must face the guardian of this treasure, the most dreaded dragon in all Middle-earth.

Extrait AN UNEXPECTED PARTY 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. It had a perfectly round door like a porthole, painted green, with a shiny yellow brass knob in the exact middle. The door opened on to a tube-shaped hall like a tunnel a very comfortable tunnel without smoke, with panelled walls, and floors tiled and carpeted, provided with polished chairs, and lots and lots of pegs for hats and coats—the hobbit was fond of visitors. The tunnel wound on and on, going fairly but not quite straight into the side of the hill—The Hill, as all the people for many miles round called it—and many little round doors opened out of it, first on one side and then on another. No going upstairs for the hobbit bedrooms, bathrooms, cellars, pantries (lots of these), wardrobes (he had whole rooms devoted to clothes), kitchens, dining-rooms, all were on the same floor, and indeed on the same passage. The best rooms were all on the left-hand side (going in), for these were the only ones to have windows, deep-set round windows looking over his garden, and meadows beyond, sloping down to the river. This hobbit was a very well-to-do hobbit, and his name was Baggins. The Bagginses had lived in the neighbourhood of The Hill for time out of mind, and people considered them very respectable, not only because most of them were rich, but also because they never had any adventures or did anything unexpected you could tell what a Baggins would say on any question without the bother of asking him. This is a story of how a Baggins had an adventure, and found himself doing and saying things altogether unexpected. He may have lost the neighbours’ respect, but he gained—well, you will see whether he gained anything in the end. The mother of our particular hobbit—what is a hobbit? I suppose hobbits need some description nowadays, since they have become rare and shy of the Big People, as they call us. They are (or were) a little people, about half our height, and smaller than the bearded dwarves. Hobbits have no beards. There is little or no magic about them, except the ordinary everyday sort which helps them to disappear quietly and quickly when large stupid folk like you and me come blundering along, making a noise like elephants which they can hear a mile off. They are inclined to be fat in the stomach; they dress in bright colours (chiefly green and yellow); wear no shoes, because their feet grow natural leathery soles and thick warm brown hair like the stuff on their heads (which is curly); have long clever brown fingers, good-natured faces, and laugh deep fruity laughs (especially after dinner, which they have twice a day when they can get it). Now you know enough to go on with. As I was saying, the mother of this hobbit—of Bilbo Baggins, that is—was the famous Belladonna Took, one of the three remarkable daughters of the Old Took, head of the hobbits who lived across The Water, the small river that ran at the foot of The Hill. It was often said (in other families) that long ago one of the Took ancestors must have taken a fairy wife. That was, of course, absurd, but certainly there was still something not entirely hobbitlike about them, and once in a while members of the Took-clan would go and have adventures. They discreetly disappeared, and the family hushed it up; but the fact remained that the Tooks were not as respectable as the Bagginses, though they were undoubtedly richer. Not that Belladonna Took ever had any adventures after she became Mrs Bungo Baggins. Bungo, that was Bilbo’s father, built the most luxurious hobbit-hole for her (and partly with her money) that was to be found either under The Hill or over The Hill or across The Water, and there they remained to the end of their days. Still it is
