The best way to enjoy and truly understand J R R Tolkien s classic masterpiece The Lord of the Rings is to invest a little time in reading The Hobbit Not necessarily first, but certainly at some point The writing styles of each book are quite different The Hobbit was originally intended for the pleasure of children and was, I understand, created with that purpose in mind Even so, it can be enjoyed by children of all ages. Stunning cover Mine has worn out a little from time Comes with a map on the inside covers front and back And a couple of illustrations throughout.
The Hobbit is a wondrous tale of adventure and heroism set in the fantasy realm of middle earth Bilbo Baggins, an unambitious Hobbit is unwillingly recruited as a burglar by a party of dwarves and sent on a most extraordinary adventure Coming head to head against trolls, goblins, wolves and the mighty dragon Smaug, Bilbo faces his worst fears, makes some unlikely allies, travels further than ever before and is changed, forever.Having watched the three Hobbit films a few years back, and having only a vague recollection of their events, I was unsure what to expect when I started this book, needless to say I thoroughly enjoyed it I love reading classical literature that has this beautiful old timey English and the Hobbit was no exception, the wonder and pureness of it never fails to transport me into days gone by.Bilbo is a funny, likeable character who s thoughts actions and conversations are so wonderfully innocent that I immediately fell in love with him His character evolution throughout the book made reading this a true delight My only complaint is that I didn t read this sooner.It really isn t difficult to see why this book became a classic and I honestly believe that regardless of your age, knowledge of middle earth or affinity for the fantasy genre, there s something that everyone can take away from reading this. Who would have thought that reading about short, hairy footed creatures with a peculiar nature and a distinct lack of wanting to leave the safety of their Hobbit Hole would be enjoyable If you d asked me before, I would have unquestionably chosen Elves as my most favourite of Tolkien s creations But maybe I was wrong, because it turns out Hobbits are relatable and far hilarious than originally thought hairy feet aside It would appear that Hobbits are also stupendously resilient, loyal and respectable creatures with far less sass than Elves I would imagine it would be quite difficult to find someone who didn t know the tale of The Hobbit, at the very least from the movies But The Hobbit, the novel, is something else entirely and an experience all its own Tolkien s narrative is lyrical, completely compelling and, whilst not nonsensical at all, has a whimsical feel to it akin to Alice in Wonderland I adored how the story is addressed to the reader, as though a secret is being shared of a story well known and enjoyed between friends Perhaps that was Tolkien s intention, given that it was ostensibly a tale to entertain his children, initially.There are some unusual choices and some areas which, for me, lack depth It feels absolutely crazy to say that about a world so rich and beautiful, but The Hobbit really does feel like a accessible and less descriptive world than that of The Lord of the Rings, presumably to allow for a younger audience to enjoy it Battle scenes, deaths and transitions between key moments are sometimes quickly resolved than I expected from such a rich tapestry, and character connections are formed with the reader from very superficial descriptions Because of this, I didn t enjoy the book as much as I expected to, and nor did I really feel the connection I hoped to with key characters But you d be hard pressed to criticise this book anywhere else.The Hobbit is a perfect adventure a terrifying, hilarious and heart warming combination uniquely its own Tolkien s imagination is limitless, and The Hobbit feels so small in the grand scheme of the world he created, but it s a world I would gladly explore to the ends of its map. Although J R R Tolkien wrote this for his children, The Hobbit is a classic which can be enjoyed by all ages.The story of Bilbo Baggins and Thorin Oakenshield and the company of dwarves contains goblins, elves, wargs, a dragon and trolls to name but a few.It has stood the test of time and is a testament to Tolkien s masterful writing it is as popular now as it ever had been.Highly recommended. I bought this as an audio download and have enjoyed listening to it However it was spoilt by the narration that made many of the characters sound like posh English Gents Would have been better to just read it without any voice accents if posh English was all the narrator could produce It just didn t fit Gandalph to sound like he had come from a big country estate in rural England.As the same narrator is also reading The Lord of the Rings trilogy of audiobooks I will be giving them a miss. 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.With these words we are introduced to Middle Earth The Hobbit is a timeless classic, which is a tale of 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.This book was written in 1937 and even today it is a best seller all over the world The way Tolkien narrates the story you will know he is a master of his trade right away from the first page This book started it all, the Lord of the rings, Simarillion, Beren and Luthien, Children of Hurin and the multi million dollar industry But at it s heart this is a simple children s story which Tolkien wrote for his own children and that s why it works.Attaching some pics for your benefit Hope this review was helpful to you Thanks for reading.

conhecimento profundo da gram tica inglesa, creio poder afirmar que a edi o correta, sem falhas significativas de revis o 1.3 O e book ilustrado, mas suas bonitas imagens s ser o aproveitadas de fato por quem o ler em uma tela colorida No Kindle convencional elas ficam pequenas e muito acinzentadas Ademais, as p ginas ilustradas demoram um bocado para carregar meu Kindle meio antigo, mas n o sei se por isso ou por conta do tamanho dos arquivos de imagem 1.4 A aventura narrada em The Hobbit passa se na Terra M dia, vasto ambiente ficcional criado por Tolkien, que fez acompanharem o livro dois mapas Estes tamb m s o dif ceis de consultar no e reader num livro f sico basta virar as p ginas, mas no digital preciso navegar pelo arquivo, o que toma tempo e dificulta a leitura Sugiro abrir os mapas no Kindle para PC e imprimi los Tentarei tamb m anex los a esta resenha 1.5 H algumas notas de rodap , cuja interliga o n o funcionou muito bem em meu Kindle Nada que prejudicasse a compreens o do texto 2 SOBRE A HIST RIA 2.1 Os fatos relatados em O Hobbit s o anteriores queles de O Senhor dos An is o protagonista do primeiro, Bilbo Baggins, tio de Frodo, portador do Um Anel no segundo 2.2 As refer ncias de O Hobbit a O Silmarillion , esp cie de Antigo Testamento do universo m tico de Tolkien, s o poucas e f ceis n o necess rio ler este para entender o aquele Por outro lado, recomendo a leitura tanto do Hobbit quanto do Silmarillion como prepara o para encarar o Senhor dos An is Sobre a express o Antigo Testamento , v esta resenha ao Silmarillion 2.3 O ingl s de O Hobbit relativamente simples embora o autor utilize alguns termos arcaicos, sua sintaxe clara e o vocabul rio pode ser dominado logo sugiro a consulta ao Google Imagens para os nomes de acidentes geogr ficos Enquanto em O Silmarillion temos uma narrativa em tom m tico e estilo b blico, e no Senhor dos An is uma fantasia pica com tra os de romance aventuresco, O Hobbit praticamente de conto de fadas N o se pense, por m, que com isso seja uma hist ria para criancinhas esta narrativa fant stica capaz de produzir e sustentar uma impress o de sabedoria latente vetusta como Gandalf, caseira como Bilbo que, a par das perip cias, muito entreter o leitor adulto A aventura de Bilbo Baggins, seu there and back again , um processo de transforma o vital, no qual cada um de n s poder se enxergar, mas cada um de maneira sempre particular, levemente adaptada ou traduzida Eis a uma poss vel defini o de s mbolo 2.4 Ainda sobre a linguagem empregada, vale destacar a rela o l dica que Tolkien estabelece com a sonoridade, com a melodia da l ngua inglesa As can es de elfos e an es s o prova disso, e na pena do autor at as preposi es, que t m fama de vazias e sensaboronas, ganham relevo The return of Mr Bilbo Baggins created quite a disturbance, both under the Hill and over the Hill, and across the Water it was a great deal than a nine days wonder As primeiras p ginas do Cap tulo V, Riddles in the Dark , brindam nos com uma s rie de frases deliciosas Olhe por alguns instantes para fotografias do velho J.R.R Tolkien, e em seguida leia seu texto em voz alta, como um av lendo para seus netos ou como seu av para voc Deep down here by the dark water lived old Gollum, a small slimy creature I don t know where he came from, nor who or what he was He was Gollum as dark as darkness, except for two big round pale eyes in his thin face He had a little boat, and he rowed about quite quietly on the lake for lake it was, wide and deep and deadly cold 2.5 Por fim, Tolkien mostra se habilidoso na t cnica de produzir tempo e espa o com palavras O Hobbit um conto de aventura e viagem, e para descrever uma viagem preciso fazer com que a dist ncia entre os diferentes cen rios deixe se sentir por mais do

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 O Hobbit n o uma hist ria genial e grandiosa, mas
