When they were first published, The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings became instant classics. Treasured by readers young and old, these works of sweeping fantasy, steeped in unrivalled magic and otherworldliness have sold more than 150 million copies around the world.
Evil goblins, beautiful elves,magic wizards, and much more! Thats what's in store for anyone who reads J.R.R Tolkien's The Hobbit and The Lord of The Rings. Reading them has been very enjoyable, a true classic. I highly recommend these books for anyone who loves adventure, comedy, and magic.
@Stephen Rigg - I don't want to get tangled up in this too much, but that's different from everything I've read previously. In Tolkien's collected letters he talks about beginning the sequel to The Hobbit in 1938, a year after The Hobbit was published. He also mentions writing specific sections of LOTR, so I find it hard to believe that it was already written. And keep in mind he's writing these letters to his son. Additionally, Tolkien revised The Hobbit after the publication of The Lord of the Rings to connect the two better (changing the scene with Gollum and the ring, for example). But if you have sources I can look at, please let me know. As I said before, he HAD already written much of the background lore of Middle-Earth, basically what would become the Silmarillion, before The Hobbit or The Lord of the Rings was published.
From the “The Lord of the Rings” series such as The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers and The Return of the King to the “The Hobbit” series such as An Unexpected Journey, The Desolation of Smaug and There and Back Again, each race is bound to its fate – and so are you. Now, I have been summoned to collect the best artworks and illustrations depicting the characters of the fantasy adventure film series: The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.
