I think it is because LotR has so many layers that are only hinted at in The Hobbit. The Hobbit is a great book, but it leaves you wondering about so many things that are answered in LotR. I also think that LotR can appeal to a wider audience. The Silmarillion and the Unfinished Tales and the other books are more scholarly and hard to read. The Hobbit, while also being a wonderful book, is written for children, so can only go so far with grownups. LotR can appeal to grownups and children, casual readers and Tolkien devotees.
I love The Hobbit too Celtavhc and don't particularly like one over the other. But that is why I think LotR is more famous.

I think it was the most famous because it is the best book ever, I must admit there is one book by a different postAuthorID that comes close to drawing 1st place with LOTR. I`m only 141 pages through FOTR and I think it`s the greatest story ever. :D (The book I said drawed with it is an autobiography by the way.)

And what exactly is this book Sheryl?
A mind full of fire and a fistful of steel.
