J.R.R. Tolkien's beloved novel The hobbit has deep roots in European folklore, mythology, and language. As a reader's introduction to Tolkien's Middle-earth, it contains references to the ancient history of this imaginary world which, though rarely explained, contribute greatly to the effect of Tolkien's art. This revised and expanded edition of The annotated hobbit unobtrusively and authoritatively illuminates the novel's antecedents and curiosities. Douglas Anderson has also collected here wonderful illustrations from all over the world. The many new annotations in this edition reflect more than a decade's additional scholarship on the history and evolution of The hobbit, and the annotations and illustrations are newly integrated with the core text in a handsome reader-friendly format. This edition also reproduces the fully corrected text of The hobbit as J.R.R. Tolkien approved it before his death, in 1973.

What Tolkien had described [in the prologue to The Lord of the Rings] is the scenario for the first edition of The Hobbit; and the statement that "this is not the story as Bilbo first told it to his companions" contradicts the statement given here, that Bilbo "sat down and told them everything, except about the finding of the ring," and the statement given later (in the spiders episode), that the dwarves, after hearing about the ring, insist on "having the Gollum story, riddles and all, told over again, with the ring in its proper place." Bilbo's dishonesty, of great importance in The Lord of the Rings, is nowhere explicitly present in The Hobbit.

On picking this up, I did not think The Hobbit particularly needed annotating; it is not a story of riddles and layers (as with [b:The Annotated Alice: The Definitive Edition|176972|The Annotated Alice The Definitive Edition|Lewis Carroll|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1367782378s/176972.jpg|15777985]); its antecedents are clear and its making well known. Having now read this, I am pleased to report I was wrong. The documentation of Tolkien's changes to the "Riddles in the Dark" chapter alone are worth the book, showing as they do the evolution of the story as Tolkien (inadvertently, as it turns out) retconned the story of the ring back into his earlier tale. The illustrations of different editions from around the world and the inclusion of snippets of Tolkien's sources are very nice as well. Worth a read for any fan of Middle Earth.

As to the primary text itself? This is the first time I have actually reread The Hobbit since I was a kid, I think, although I have reread The Lord of the Rings a number of times. I am pleased to say it holds up; Gollum and the spiders and Smaug and Beorn and Bard and all of it. I get the same chills now as I always have when the cry goes up that the Eagles are coming. I know it is not fashionable, among the seriously literary lovers of fantasy, to love Tolkien unironically. But I do. All I can say is that if any of the naysayers who want to call him a wart on a horse's butt (or a wanna-be fascist or whatever the going thing is) ever write anything as good as this little tale of an Everyman, I will read it and love it, too.

Indispensable for any serious Tolkienist. The second edition is a huge improvement over the first.

So yeah, I'm 36 years old, have read LoTR a couple of times, seen the movies a bunch, played lots of D&D, and somehow never got around to reading The Hobbit. I did see the movie once, at the library when I was a little kid, and I think one more time in the last decade or so.

It's a damn clever story; the locales are quite vivid, and I'm intrigued by the characters who weren't in LoTR. (Beorn in particular.)

I do wish I hadn't gotten the annotated version, though. Fascinating stuff, some of it, but also terribly distracting. And I'm still not so much for Tolkien's poetry.

All in all, I'm glad I finally got around to it. ( )

J.R.R. Tolkien's complete work The Lord of the Rings consists of six Books, frequently bound in three Volumes, as follow:
  • Volume I: The Fellowship of the Ring, consisting of Book 1, "The Ring Sets Out" and Book 2, "The Ring Goes South";

  • Volume II: The Two Towers, consisting of Book 3, "The Treason of Isengard," and Book 4, "The Ring Goes East"; and

  • Volume III: The Return of the King, consisting of Book 5, "The War of the Ring," and Book 6, "The End of the Third Age," with Appendices.
This is The Annotated Hobbit, which has additional material as well as the contents of the original book; they should not be combined.
