The radio dramatisation of The Hobbit became a classic when it was first broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in 1968 and it continues to delight today.

Tolkien's famous saga, the prelude to the Lord of the Rings, has all the ingredients of fantasy and adventure: dwarves, elves, goblins and trolls, a fearsome dragon, a great wizard, a perilous quest, and a dramatic climax. At the centre is the unsuspecting hero Bilbo Baggins, a home-loving unambitious Hobbit who is suddenly thrust into the biggest, indeed the only adventure of his life.

    " Excellent fantasy series. Esoteric language, but if you're determined it's an amazing series. "

    " It's a good Book, a great story and I can really tell that he wrote it as he told his children the story of Frodo and the fellow-ship :D "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Natasha | 5/21/2011

    " I am not usually a huge fan of fantasy novels, but I had to make an exception for Tolkien. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paige | 5/21/2011

    " Why hadn't I read this series earlier in my life? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alan | 5/20/2011

    " no review will ever do Tolkiens books justice, simply read them and let yourself go. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cheryl | 5/20/2011

    " This wasn't exactly the edition that I have, but I'm assuming that the reading is all the same. This is the 2nd time I read the book & found new things each time. Now I want to rewatch the movie! Wonderful story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gustavo | 5/20/2011

    " Changed my life. If every book I read could bring perspective like The Lord of the Rings, I`d be a smart smart lad. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bridget | 5/18/2011

    " Read this twice and will probably do it again. Just a classic read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cindy | 5/17/2011

    " What can I say - one of my favourites of all time. An allegory of WWII with the nasty nazi's as Mordor and rural England as the innocent yet noble rural Englanders (pre-industrial) as the Hobbits. To design whole languages, interlocking stories and cultures. What an achievement.... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sabah | 5/17/2011

    " Didn't like the book, so much so that I never finished it. Didn't like the movies either... "

About the Author

J. R. R. Tolkien (1892–1973), beloved throughout the world as the creator of The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and other tales of Middle-earth, was a professor of Anglo-Saxon at Oxford, a fellow of Pembroke College, and a fellow of Merton College until his retirement in 1959. His chief interest was the linguistic aspects of the early English written tradition, but even as he studied these classics he was creating a set of his own. His books have been translated into more than fifty languages and have sold many millions of copies worldwide.
