About this deal

Tolkien (1892-1973) was a distinguished academic, though he is best known for writing The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, The Silmarillion and The Children of Hurin, plus other stories and essays. In the final chapter or so, I'm not ashamed to admit that I found it difficult to hold back those bittersweet tears. Tolkien’s mastery of storytelling has inspired generations, leaving an indelible mark on the literary landscape. The vivid descriptions of the Shire, Rivendell, and other mesmerizing landscapes, coupled with the charming and eccentric characters, transported me to a world brimming with wonder. This deluxe edition of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings is the perfect gift for any fan of Tolkien's world, and a great replacement for your battered paperbacks.

If a refund or reimbursement is payable to you, we will transfer the money using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase. Tolkien was a professor at the Universities of Leeds and Oxford for almost forty years, teaching Old and Middle English, as well as Old Norse and Gothic. 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. I will not deny that The Lord of the Rings trilogy is a difficult read in terms of perseverance (hence 4 stars).Impossible to describe in a few words, JRR Tolkien’s great work of imaginative fiction has been labelled both a heroic romance and a classic fantasy fiction.

The foundations of the genre rely on invention and reinvention, pushing boundaries, and infusing the known with the unknown. Tolkien would be one of those guys who, if I could invite any 3 people to have dinner with, would get a seat at the table. We will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case within thirty (30) days of the day we confirm via e-mail that you are entitled to a refund for defective goods. Yet despite internal conflicts, there is something respectable in what he achieved, and no fantasy author has yet been capable of comprehending what Tolkien was trying to do and innovating upon it. I have read and absolutely relished these books a number of times, but haven't really put any effort behind understanding rather than just enjoyment.Now, unlike his bestie Clive Staples Lewis, Tolkien was a perfectionist and took his sweet time writing his books. Furthermore, Tolkien’s exploration of themes such as friendship, sacrifice, and the triumph of good over evil resonated with me on a profound level. One other thing, we see that evil gets nervous also and that it will eventually collapse in on itself. It's been many years since I read this for the first time and what struck me is that I had completely forgotten it was written for children. It offers readers a new opportunity to discover Tolkien’s remarkable world of Middle-earth and to follow the complete story of Bilbo Baggins and the Hobbits’ part in the epic quest for the Ring – beginning with Bilbo’s fateful visit from Gandalf and culminating in the dramatic climax between Frodo and Gollum atop Mount Doom.
