I think I could like this but I havent been motivated enough to start the series.. is it worth it. Loved the movies. Not a big fantasy person.
its definitely worth it if u liked the movies, although i read it after i saw the first movie ... the end part of the series is fantastic ... the war scenes are so vast in imagingation (u'll b amazed) ... but there is some long drawn description in the second book which u can skip ...
It is definately worth it - probably the best books I have read - they are long but you won't mind - its an amazing journey.
ini buku lama, tetapi dengan bahasa inggeris yang saya suka :) (ya, ya. saya tahu ia dicetak kembali dengan wajah baru.) ;)
A fascinating journey in a whole new world. Overall a great book for all those adaventure seeking people.
HU said that when he saw the movie, that everything was as he had imagined. I thought all this time that the Hobbits were living underground. After reading all three books! I preferred The Hobbit and laughed at the multiple breakfasts, as I ate two breakfasts at the time. I didn't enjoy the war details in the three books. I saw the cartoon, read the book of the cartoon, too.
Have you noticed that Hobbit society looks more like actual human society than the Humans on the Middle Earth?
Read them in college...need to read them again. I will not be reading The Hobbit again. It took me longer to get through The Hobbit than the trilogy. I remember loving The Two Towers.
It's been a long time since I've read these, but I'm reading them again this summer! :)
Ballantine is THE publisher J.R.R. Tolkein himself authorized for reprinting of his work in 1973. If you would do homage to his memory, then buy (or borrow) and read THIS edition.
I have read these works more than two dozen times. And every time, I am always surprised to find something new, or a new angle I hadn't considered.
Enjoy. They are a parable for the Ages...
Awesome book loved it.
