The Hobbit or There and Back Again Download ¼ 109 Reluctant hero a powerful and dangerous ring and the cruel dragon Smaug the Magnificent The text in this 372 page paperback edition is based on that first published in Great Britain by Collins Modern Classics 1998 and includes a note on the text by Douglas A Anderson 200. From a hole in the ground came one of my favorite characters of all time the very reluctant and unassuming hero Bilbo Baggins As a child The Hobbit sparked my young imagination causing wonderful daydreams and horrible nightmares As a teen the book made me want to become a writer of fantastical talesor go shoeless live in a hole and smoke a pipe As an adult Tolkien s novel maintains within me a link to my childhood safekeeping cherished memories and evoking everlasting emotions The troubles with trolls those slinking spiders the finding of treasure cave exploration riddles in the darkit all added up in me a love for adventure I would make many an ornate wooden sword in my father s basement workshop because of Sting Funny I didn t take to wearing rings thoughBeing pint sized Mr Baggins makes the perfect magnetic character for a young person He is about a child s size yet he is mature Similar yet something to aspire to His diminutive stature made his implausible escapes and victories that much satisfying Nothing bores me than muscle bound killing machines wielding swords the size of windmill blades I have read this fantastic tale a number of times watched the 70s cartoon movie version countless times and was counting down the days with unabashed eagerness until Peter Jackson s new live action film came out I will continue to read The Hobbit again and again for the road goes ever ever onAppendix ish type reviews The Hobbit the 1977 animated film version by Rankin BassThis may be the movie I ve watched the most in my life This is the one I can uote from start to finish and annoy the fuck out of my friends I try to refrain but when John Huston bellows out I am Gandalf and Gandalf means MEwell I just can t help myself Crazy off his rocker Brother Theodore as Gollum still astounds me with the sheer depth of his guttural growl Sorry voice straining Serkis but this is the real Gollum the creepy muthah that kept me up nights Though Rankin Bass s version skips over the whole Beorn scene entirely coming in at 90 minutes they actually managed to pack in uite a bit of story Certainly it is truncated to absurdity during The Battle of Five Armies but at least it s not overblown as appears to be happening with Peter Jackson s unnecessarily long trilogy of this single book The Hobbit or There And Back Again An illustrated book by Rankin BassThough it s a few pages shorter than the regular paperback version this marvelous part text part illustrated version seems to be unabridged It includes screenshots taken directly from the 70s cartoon plus where the movie skipped over parts of the book they ve included extra illustrations admittedly of mixed uality It s a little strange to see the same characters rendered differently sitting side by sidebut nonetheless it s always fun to see how artists interpret the work especially when it s a work dear to your heart The Hobbit a film version by Peter JacksonIt s never fun to see an artist tear the heart out of a work Peter Jackson was given too long a leash when New Line stretched this one book out to three separate movies Instead of one movie packed with awesome we get three that so far I ve yet to see the third and I m not eager to have been watered down and dragged out Extra scenes are added and add nothing Really a sleigh ride chase scene with an incredibly minor character And honestly can Richard Armitage as Thorin Oakenshield act with any other part of his body besides his eyebrows

The Hobbit or There and Back Again Download ¼ 109 Ildren The Hobbit met with instant critical acclaim when it was first published in 1937 Now recognized as a timeless classic this introduction to the hobbit Bilbo Baggins the wizard Gandalf Gollum and the spectacular world of Middle earth recounts of the adventures of a. In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit Books exist in time and place and our experience of them is affected by the specific time and place in which we encounter them Sometimes an uplifting or inspiring book can change the path of a life that has wandered onto a wrong course Sometimes a book discovered early on can form part of the foundation of who we are Or discovered late can offer insight into the journey we have taken to date Sometimes a book is just a book But not The Hobbit Not for me In January 2013 I pulled out my forty year old copy in anticipation of seeing the recently released Peter Jackson film It is a substantial book heavy not only with its inherent mass but for the weight of associations the sediment of time The book itself is a special hard cover edition published in 1973 leather bound in a slipcase the booty of new love from that era The book while victim to some internal binding cracks aren t we all is still in decent shape unlike that long vanuished relationship Not surprising I had read the story six times and been there and back again with this particular volume five JRR Tolkien image from Visionorg The Hobbit had first come to my attention in 1965 or 66 I was then a high school underclassman and my eyes were drawn to it at a school book fair That was probably the ideal age for me anyway to gain an introduction to Tolkien Not too far along into adolescence and an appreciation of the reality of the world to have completely tarnished my capacity for child like wonder That is what one must bring to a reading of this book openness and innocence Tolkien was a step sidewise for me as I was a fan of the science fiction of that and prior eras It was also of course a gateway drug for the grander addiction of LOTR still my favorite read of all time One might think that looking at this book again with old weary fresh eyes might lend new insight After all I have read literally thousands of books since and have picked up at least a little critical capacity And yes there are things I notice now that perhaps skipped past back then Of course that begs a specification of which back then one considers While I first read the book as a high schooler I read it again when I was gifted with this beautiful volume in my twenties That makes two readings But there would be I well recall reading the book aloud while sitting in a chair by my son s bed And yes each of the major characters was delivered with a distinct voice I went as deep as I could for Gandalf I vaguely recall giving the dwarves a Scottish burr Bilbo was definitely a tenor My Gollum was remarkably like the sound of the one created by Andy Serkisssssss patting self on back Of course my son was not the last to arrive at the gathering Some years later there was a daughter and bedside theater It was a bit of a struggle then Life was rather hectic Nerves were often frayed Sleep was in short supply And there were far too many times when my eyes closed before those of my little gingersnap But reading it that fourth time one couldn t help but notice the absence of any significant females Who might my little girl relate to here It is certainly possible for folks to identify with characters of another gender but the stark absence of representatives of the female persuasion did stand out Somehow I managed to keep my eyes open long enough to get through the volumeBut the party was not yet complete There would be one arrival and one opportunity to sit on or near a daughter s bed and read aloud sometimes to an upturned eager face sometimes to a riot of ringlets as she settled My capacity for consciousness remained an issue By then my voice had also suffered a bit with the years the reward for too many cigarettes too much yelling too much ballpark whistling and the usual demise of age so it took a fair bit effort and strain than reading it aloud had done previously I am pretty certain I made it through that third time aloud Truthfully I am not 100% certain that I did You probably know the story or the broad strokes anyway In the uiet rural village of Hobbiton Across the Water in a land called Middle Earth an unpresupposing everyman Bilbo Baggins lives a uiet existence He has a smidgen of wanderlust in him the genetic gift of ancestors on the Took branch of his family tree but he is mostly content to enjoy hearty meals and a good pipe One day Gandalf a lordly father figure wizard Bilbo has known for many years comes a calling and Bilbo s life is upended Gandalf is helping a group of dwarves who are on a uest Led by Thorin Oakenshield a dwarf king they aim to return to their home inside the Lonely Mountain somehow rid the place of Smaug the dragon who has taken up residence and regain the land and incredible treasure that is rightfully theirs Gandalf has recommended that Bilbo accompany the group as a burglar Bilbo of course has never burgled a thing in his life and is horrified by the prospect But heeding his Tookish side Bilbo joins the dwarves and the adventure is on One need not go far to see this as a journey of self discovery as Bilbo finds that there is to him than even he realized This raises one uestion for me How did Gandalf know that Bilbo would be the right hobbit for the job Bilbo faces many challenges and I betray no secrets for any who have not just arrived on this planet by reporting that Bilbo s dragons real and symbolic are ultimately slain and he returns home a new and somewhat notorious hobbit Bilbo serves well as the everyman someone who is uite modest about his capacities but who rises to meet the challenges that present acting in spite of his fear and not in the absence of it He is someone we can easily care and root for Elements abound of youthful adventure yarns treasure a map to the treasure a secret entrance that reuires solving a riddle to gain entry a spooky forest foolishness and greed among those in charge a huge battle and ultimately good sense triumphing over evil and stupidity Oh yeah there is something in there as well about a secret powerful ring that can make it s wearer invisible Sorry no damsels in distressRivendell remains a pretty special place If I am ever fortunate enough to be able to retire I think I would like to spend my final days there whether the vision seen by Tolkien or the Maxfield Parrish take as seen in the LOTR films There are magical beings aplenty here Hobbits of course and the wizard and dwarves we meet immediately A shape shifting Beorn assists the party but remains uite frightening There are trolls giant spiders giants goblins were wolf sorts called wargs talking eagles a communicative if murderous dragon elves of both the helpful and difficult sorts and a few men as well Then there is GollumIMHO Bilbo is not the most interesting character in Tolkien s world Arguably there is a lot going on with Gollum an erstwhile hobbit riven by the internal conflict of love and hate corrupted but not without a salvageable soul While he is given considerably ink in the LOTR story it is in The Hobbit that we meet him for the first time He is the single least YA element in this classic yarn one of the things that elevates this book from the field and makes it a classic The Hobbit was written before Tolkien s ambitious Lord of the Rings While there are many references to classic lore the bottom line is that this is a YA book It is easy to read and to read aloud something that is not the case with LOTR I know and is clearly intended for readers far younger than I am today It remains a fun read even on the sixth or so I may have dipped in again somewhere along the line time through Were I reading it today for the first time I would probably give it four stars But as it bears the weighty treasure of memory and fond association I must keep it at five If you are reading this for the first time as an adult or an antiue the impact is likely to be different for you If you are a younger sort of the adolescent or pre adolescent persuasion particularly if you are a boy it might become an invaluable part of your life Maybe one day you can sit by your child s or grandchild s bedside and be the person who reads these words to them for the first time In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit and begin the adventure again To see the glowing young eyes as the tale unfolds is nothing less than absolutely preciousPS I would check out the review offered by GR pal Ted He includes in his review outstanding informative and very entertaining excerpts and comments re info on The Hobbit from JRRT s son Christopher EXTRA STUFFHere is a lovely article on JRRT from Smithsonian Magazine January 2002In comment 32 below GR pal Rand added a link to a reading of the entire book by Nicol Williamson It is just the thing for bedtime yours or your child s Adding it here was done with Rand s kind permission

    The Hobbit or There and Back Again (E–pub/E–book) Ô J.R.R. Tolkien What makes The Hobbit such a seminal work in the fantasy genre? Is it the nine hours of over budget sensorially explosive movies by Peter Jackson? Nope Is it a complex tale of multiple human kingdoms slaughtering each other for an Iron Throne with buckets of blood and guts and plenty of sex?
