J. R. R. Tolkien Books

It all began with The Hobbit, a classic children's story created by linguistics professor J. R. R. Tolkien. Readers clamoured for a sequel, but Tolkien was trying - and failing - to get his mythological Eä stories into print. Eventually, the two ideas came together, and became the internationally successful The Lord of the Rings. This story, told across a trilogy of books, invented modern fantasy, and inspired everything from Game of Thrones to Dungeons & Dragons. 

Tolkien's work has been adapted many times, most notably Peter Jackson's Middle-Earth cycle of films. Now, get ready for the upcoming series The Rings of Power with the books where it all began. We’ve got a complete box set of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings available at a great price.

Whereas The Lord of the Rings is set at the end of the Third Age, The Rings of Power will tell the story of the Second Age. It’s adapted from the references sprinkled throughout The Lord of the Rings, and its extensive appendices. You can read a more complete account of the history of Middle-Earth in books published after Tolkien’s death such as The Silmarillion, Unfinished Tales, The Children of Hurin and The Fall of Gondolin.
