Exclusive to this Enhanced version of the eBook are recently
discovered audio recordings by J.R.R. Tolkien, and high-resolution
colour images of all of Tolkien's illustrations for the book, many
of which are also included in their earlier black-and-white
versions and can be revealed by a simple swipe of the screen. A
Foreword by Christopher Tolkien, complete with illustrations
including manuscript pages and unused drawings, examines the
writing of the book. This Enhanced eBook also includes recently
discovered audio recordings of J.R.R. Tolkien reading excerpts from
The Hobbit, including the dwarves' party song, the account of their
capture by the three trolls, and Bilbo Baggins's creepy encounter
with the hideous Gollum. Bilbo Baggins enjoys a quiet and contented
life, with no desire to travel far from the comforts of home. Then
one day the wizard Gandalf and a band of dwarves arrive
unexpectedly and enlist his services-as a burglar-on a dangerous
expedition to raid the treasure-hoard of Smaug the dragon. Bilbo's
life is never to be the same again. The Hobbit was an instant
success when it was first published in 1937, and 75 years later
Tolkien's epic tale of hobbits, elves, dwarves, goblins, magic and
adventure has lost none of its appeal.
