Intriguing to the uninitiated, enchanting to the Tolkien enthusiast, The Hobbit Companion can only enhance our enjoyment of his dark, mysterious world.

Exploring the brilliant web of verbal hocus-pocus that J.R.R. Tolkien delightedly spun in The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, master hobbit investigator David Day reveals the myriad crafty puns and riddles, hidden meanings, and mythical associations beneath the saga's thrilling surface. The Hobbit is also the subject of a forthcoming two-part film adaptation; Peter Jackson, director of The Lord of the Rings film trilogy, is the director, producer and co-writer. The two parts were filmed in New Zealand with the first installment, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey? being released in December 2012.
