Gosto muito da forma como a escrita de Tolkien flui. Tem uma grande parte de contar histórias e isso é bastante interessante.
Pensava que o livro era diferente, mais parecido com Contos Inacabados, mais sobre a Terra Média e especialmente, mais sobre Tom Bombadil.
E não estava à espera da escrita em poesia.

Mas, gostei. Gostei especialmente dos três contos em prosa. Em especial do de Smith e do de Niggle. Achei o primeiro muito bom devido a toda a Fantasia presente e gostei muito do cariz filosóf

Este era o único livro de Tolkien com algumas ligações com a Terra Média que me faltava ler. Acho que adiei a leitura porque sabia que uma boa parte do livro era escrito em verso e essa não é, de todo, a minha praia.

Mais de um terço do livro contém, precisamente, poesia. Essa secção corresponde a As Aventuras de Tom Bombadil , um conjunto de 16 poemas sobre os mais diversos temas, em que os dois primeiros são dedicados a esta peculiar personagem do universo Tolkien, que volta a fazer uma apariç

This is a collection of Tolkien's poetry, in Hobbit style, taken from Bilbo's Red Book. Only the first two poems refer to Bombadil, the others being general verses from Middle-Earth, and a couple of them are familiar from The Lord of the Rings.

If you like Tolkien's poetry (and I do), you'll enjoy these (mostly) simple poems, which can be read quite quickly.

I have to say this book is half good half boring. The Adventures of Tom Bombadil are written in poem (I knew I had never read this one for some reason...) which I don't really like, but the other stories are pretty cool.

Leer este poemario me ha dado dos problemas: la traducción en español perdía el encanto y la musicalidad del original, por lo que la calidad me parecía más bien cuestionable (ojo, reconozco el gran reto al que han tenido que hacer frente los traductores a la hora de hacer su trabajo); y por otro lado, al leerlo en inglés, a pesar de lo rítmico y bien sonoro de los poemas, no entendía buena parte de lo que leía, por eso no he podido disfrutarlo totalmente.

Se puede decir que la culpa de que le dé

This was fun...I felt like I was hanging out with Bilbo! This is a book of poetry...written by hobbits?? :) I think my favorite poem was Shadow's Bride. Although I looked at two different copies of this, my favorite part was in the book Tales from the Perilous Realm with Roverandom the preface to The Adventures of Tom Bombadil. That was the best part of the whole thing! :) So..I suggest if you pick any of these further readings from Tolkien...read the forwards and prefaces...they really are wor ...more

Didn't like it at all, usually the poems that Tolkien wrote for The Lord of The rings were incredible , these are simple and kind of childish
Artnoose Noose
Somewhat interesting from a Tolkien study angle. I really appreciate the in-world narrative of the preface that explains how the compiler of the poems knows which hobbits wrote which ones and under what circumstances.

Bonito, bonito. Lo tengo en una rara edición mexicana, opción a la edición conocida de Minotauro, un tesoro :)

Viele kleine Kurztrips nach Mittelerde

Das Hörbuch hat mir viel Freude bereitet. Es war sehr schön, mal wieder in die Welt von Mittelerde abzutauchen. Die kleinen Gedichte sind schön, niedlich, manchmal ein bisschen traurig, aber immer märchenhaft, und verleiten zum Träumen. Manches Mal hätte ich mir ein bisschen mehr "Drumherum" gewünscht. Auch hab ich mich dabei ertappt, ab und an abgeschaltet zu haben...zum Glück kann man zurückspulen ;)

Insgesamt ist es aber eine tolle Reise für alle Tolkien

4 stars for the stories at the end - I loved them ^^
The translated poetry was not my cup of tea though, couldn't get into it at all (reason why I took so long to have the heart to finish this book).
But I'll probably read the short stories again in the near future - at least, I feel really inclined to do so. Couldn't really pick a favourite from all three, but somehow I feel that I didn't completely grasp the third one, Niggle. I'll start rereading from that one.

Saw this in the stacks today, as I climbed up to my new office. I did not know it existed, so was very pleased to spend a few moments with it. This is a bunch of verse from the Red Book of Westmarch (a fictional book of verse and whatnot that hobbits read in Tolkien land). Charming and magical and nice to discover more stuff from that world. (P.S. the copy in the stacks is a first edition - the art is pretty great--not what Goodreads shows, but that's neat, too.)
Bruno Silva
As histórias são excelentes em particular a de Smith de Wooton Major que com simplicidade e coragem um lavrador faz frente a um Rei utilizando com habilidade um Dragão e algumas percepções diferentes da realidade relativas a acontecimentos com o mesmo. O Leaf de Niggle também é uma pequena pérola.

Em resumo, Tolkien pode ser considerado como um dos maiores génios literários do Séc XX e este pequeno conjunto de histórias confirma-o

Really awesome! Just the way poems are supposed to be...
Paula García reynaldos
Soy fan de las obras de Tolkien y definitivamente uno de los personajes que más me intrigan en su mitología es Tom Bombadil, sin embargo el libro no contiene demasiada información sobre su origen o su destino, respecto a los acontecimientos ocurridos en el Señor de los Anillos. El libro está escrito en forma de poemas/canciones al estilo de las que Tolkien intercala en sus obras.
Janne Paananen
Tolkienin kuusitoista runoa, jotka joko liippaavat suoraan Keski-Maata tai sitten ovat hobbittien tekemiksi kirjoitettuja. Parasta antia ovat ensimmäiset, Tom Bombadilista kertovat runot ja viimeinen, haltijoiden harmaisiin satamiin lähtemisestä kertova runo. Siinä välissä olevat ovat lähinnä kuriositeettejä Tolkien-fanaatikoille.
Jeni Enjaian
I don't have much to say about this short book. I think I may have been missing some of the book in the audiobook version I listened too. It was good and an interesting dramatized narration. However, since I knew the entire story (it's almost straight from Fellowship...at least the part I listened to) it wasn't my favorite.
Felipe Guerrero
Es muy bueno pero al ser un libro enteramente de poesías no se disfrutar tanto como se debería a menos que se lean las versiones en ingles. Así podremos disfrutar de las rimas creadas por el maestro J.R.R. Tolkien.
Su Evenstar
Gostei bastante.

Nada tem a ver com a obra d'O Senhor dos Anéis. Mas são pequenos contos interessantes. O conto que mais gostei foi O Ferreiro de Wooton Major.

É uma leitura fácil e leve. Tolkien mesmo com este tipo de abordagem tem o seu encanto.
Frank Vermeulen
Ik geef het boek de voordeel van de twijfel.
Ik ben persoonlijk niet weg van dat gerijm in de eerste helft van het boek dat over Tom Bombadil gaat, maar het verhaal "Blad van Klein" maakte een hoop goed. Ik zou dus eigenlijk 3,5 ster willen geven...

This is a quick, fun little read. You won’t gain any new information about the mythology of Middle Earth nor will you learn anything new about Tom Bombadil from reading this book but I think any Tolkien fan will enjoy reading it.

Summary
My goal for 2013 is to finish the Middle-Earth Universe of books. While doing so I will be following The Tolkien Professor Lectures.
Dennis
Poems! I'm not a huge fan of these. Roses are red, violets are blue. Poems of Bombadil are only a few. Only the first two are actually about Bombadil and the rest, written by Frodo, bilbo or Sam are random and whimsical.
Ruth Hyland
I'm not sure what i was hoping for. I guess something more Lord of the Ringsish. I don't do well with prose and meter. I don't love words. For me it is about the story.
Eveymorgan
Vi este ejemplar al pasar por una librería y en ese instante tuve que entrar y comprarlo. Una edición que es una maravilla con ilustraciones y bilingüe. Para fans de Tolkien
David Jones
Tom Bombadil was one of my favorite characters in the Trilogy. The book also has fuller versions of some of the funnier poems/songs that the hobbits sing in the Trilogy.
Hazel Ann Samson
Awww, I miss Tom Bombadil. Definitely, one of my favorite characters in LOTR. He was one of the irrelevant but funny and interesting character in the trilogy.
Reta Anna Maria
Varmasti avautuu paljon paremmin niille jotka tietävät Keskimaasta ja Tolkienista enemmän ja ovat harjaantuneempia lukemaan runoutta.
Joel Gomes
Primeira leitura: há mais de vinte anos. Do que é que me lembro? Lembro-me que gostei. É o que interessa, não é?
