The Lord of the Rings - J. R. R. Tolkien

A Christian can almost be forgiven for not reading the Bible, but there's no salvation for ... more

a fantasy fan who hasn't read the gospel of the
genre, JRR. Tolkien's definitive three-book epic,
The Lord of the Rings (encompassing The Fellowship
of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the
King), and its charming precursor, The Hobbit.
That many (if not most) fantasy works are in some
way derivative of Tolkien is understood, but the
influence of The Lord of the Rings is so universal
that everybody from George Lucas to Led Zeppelin
has appropriated it for one purpose or another.
Not just revolutionary because it was
ground-breaking, The Lord of the Rings is timeless
because it's the product of a truly top-shelf
mind. Tolkien was a distinguished linguist and
Oxford scholar of dead languages, with strong
ideas about the importance of myth and story and a
deep appreciation of nature. His epic, 10 years in
the making, recounts the Great War of the Ring and
the closing of Middle-Earth's Third Age, a time
when magic begins to fade from the world and men
rise to dominance. Tolkien carefully details this
transition with tremendous skill and love,
creating in The Lord of the Rings a universal and
all-embracing tale, a justly celebrated classic.

Quick review of The Lord of the Rings (3 Book Box set) - J. R. R. Tolkien

"a story that tells about everything in life. a meeting - a farewell, a happiness - sorrow, smiles and tears, peace - war, pride - cowardness, everythings chained in a beautifull flow. Some brave enough to face the reality, someone has to do something for everybody, sombebody has to die for his belief. All of us has to copy the spirit of every character in the story. The incredible journey shall be continue to find the true love indeed

"this boxset is the three books in one which is good so you dont have to go out and buy them all!but generally they r good books much better than harry potter and they really capture your imagination.

Advantagesthree books in one

"...bring them all and in the darkness bind them. i already watch the first one but not yet the two other. so it is good to read the book. since it is three in one it is affordable. when you read the book, you still can watch cd or dvd for the movie but it is good to have the book because, since it is a book, your imagination works on how it will happen, your brain will works in it. You will learn more through reading a lot, and since these books has ..." Read review

Product Information for "The Lord of the Rings (3 Book Box set) - J. R. R. Tolkien" »

Manufacturer's product description

For those who have not read Tolkien's epic fantasy, or for those looking to replace a worn and battered copy, this three-volume <I>The Lord of the Rings</I> box set is a great place to start. Comprising the three novels that make up the <I>Lord of the Rings</I> sequence--<I>The Fellowship of the Ring</I>, <I>The Two Towers</I> and <I>The Return of the King</I>--the whole set is presented in matching matt black packaging with embossed runes and coloured rings. Of course, beneath the fancy covers lies a great epic story of good versus evil, perhaps one of the greatest stories ever told. Attractively presented--and at a great price--there really is no excuse not to have this in your collection. So go on, give it a try; once you've entered Tolkien's fantastic imagination, you'll find it hard to leave. <I>--Jonathan Weir</I>

An amazing blend of fantasy and ordinary life, Stories that touch heart, mind, and soul,
None! (*)
a good read
you wont be able to put it down until you finish it (*)
Interesting, nice drawings
none (*)
Intrigue, magic, and characters that live, and breathe for the reader. Stands up well to repeated readings.
Poor editing in my copy , and perhaps a bit cluttered with extra characters and side stories (*)
similar by Title (First Letter) (T)
Interesting diversion for the fans
Not much to recommend it to anyone else (*)
A wholly satisfying read
A long read (*)
The wonderfully decriptive text unlike anything else, the brooding and plotting so complex.
Cab be hard to read in terms of style. His command of the language puts you in awe. (*)
The Best book of all Time.
none for me. (*)
similar by Author Surname (First Letter) (T)
Well-crafted story in the traditional vein
Unsubtle transfer into volume 2 (maybe) (*)
Great in its own right and sets you up well for the follow up
the fact that you can't actually live in Middle Earth (*)
Amazing characters, gripping plot.
None for me, but it is a long book (*)
Fantastic books, will probably endure for ever, great to own them as a set.
Can be heavy going, appendices not necessarily worth reading. (*)
