The Hobbit (Paperback) Price: Rs.493

Bilbo Baggins was a hobbit who wanted to be left alone in quiet comfort. But the wizard Gandalf came along with a band of homeless dwarves. Soon Bilbo was drawn into their quest, facing evil orcs, savage wolves, giant spiders, and worse unknown dangers. Finally, it was Bilbo?alone and unaided?who had to confront the great dragon Smaug, the terror of an entire countryside . . .

The book, publicized widely as a children's read according to me is a must read for everyone--
We all love dreaming--Tolkien just enhances this ability a bit more--

Loved reading and thanks to flipkart for delivering it on time.

Timeless classic

I'm a fan of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, The Silmarillion, and looking forward to reading unfinished tales of Numenor and the children of Hurin. But this is the book where it all began for me.
I need not say much about the great professor's work, which are magnificient in their own, and one of those stories that stay with you. A must have for any Ringer (especially if the collector's edition or a hardback one is out of reach).
This is a reprint from the collector's edition-and thus each chapter has little illustrations at the beginning, and Thorin's map of Erebor is...

This is a reprint from the collector's edition-and thus each chapter has little illustrations at the beginning, and Thorin's map of Erebor is spread across two pages, once at the beginning of the book, and again at the very end.
This is also my first online buying experience, and I'm impressed with Flipkart's speedy delivery (arrived within 2 days), and excellent packaging. I was waiting for a good offer on this book, and finally got it for Rs. 173 here! Thanks a lot, Flipkart!

Bilbo Baggins and Company(Nori, Fili, Dori, Bofur, Gloin, Dwalin, Thorin, Balin, Oin, Bombur, Bifur, Ori and Kili...phew!!) with Gandalf are a must read for ALL!!!

"To read is an adventure for it is full of twists and turns"
At last I got to read this book ... and what an adventure it is...! Bilbo Baggins is a hobbit one will absolutely adore, his journey with 13 dwarfs(Nori, Fili, Dori, Bofur, Gloin, Dwalin, Thorin, Balin, Oin, Bombur, Bifur, Ori and Kili....phew!!!) and the famous wizard Gandalf can never bore anyone...
75 years since it was published, "The Hobbit"(perfectly titled) continues to enthrall us and it is one of the Books I thoroughly enjoyed

The Hobbit

The Hobbit is an introduction to the world of Tolkien. It was written as a book for children but the legend later evolved greatly. A few characters in The Lord of the Rings are introduced here, such as Elrond, Gandalf and Sauron. Sauron is not mentioned by this name. He is present as a dark and mysterious character called the Necromancer. The Hobbit tells the story of how Bilbo got the One Ring and it also tells of the death of Smaug and the restoration of the kingdom of Erebor. The book is a delightful read and an introduction to the world of The Lord of the Rings.

The reprint of the Collector's Edition

This piece makes a wonderful read and is definitely worth storing in your book shelves. I feel the story makes an interesting read for both the kids and adults alike. This is the latest version of the story which was tweaked by the author himself a bit to suit the Lord of The Rings trilogy on which he continued the work post the World War 2. It contains the maps and drawings by the author (Thorin’s map and the dwarf runes).

I suggest this book to all the fantasy lovers out there. Special thanks to flipkart for making this collector’s edition available to us and for the speedy de...

The Hobbit refers to the account of all the adventures experienced by Bilbo and His company of dwarves.

It is a great book and will be quite helpful for those who aim to read The Lord of The Rings in the future. It is quite humorous and light-hearted. The book is worth the money you will spend to buy it. (View complete review)
