8Parents need to know that, of J.R.R. Tolkien’s many excellent books, The Hobbit is the better choice for tweens. It makes a great read-aloud for kids 8 and up and read-alone for 10 or 11 and up. Kids younger than 8 will probably have a tough time with both the vocabulary and some of the violence.

Adams, Tolkien reader since 1968. I don’t know what you’re used to, but The Hobbit is a light, easy read intended for children. The Lord of the Rings is much more slow-moving, with fairly long descriptions of the landscape and the weather, big sections of history, and a lot of poetry.

One is an original language version by Rob Inglis, who also made audiobook versions of “Lord of the Rings” and of the three books of the original “Earthsea” trilogy (but in fact nothing else, as far as I can see – he must have been very selective). Inglis’ version of “The Hobbit” is very good.
