The Fellowship of the Ring (The Lord of the Rings, Book 1)
Sheer genius -- completely supported throughout


I will not belabor the obvious with praises of Tolkien's works. I've read the whole trilogy (and "The Hobbit," of course) over 30 times and love them all more with each reading. Just wanted to say to be sure to read the appendixes -- valuable and insightful (and amusing) additions to the storyline. Frodo Lives!

Lord of the Rings
A terrible abridged version of a great book


I have been a long time fan of the LOTR. Since the movies were released some of my friends wanted to know more about the books, so I checked this set out of the Library thinking it was a good place to start. Sadly I was mistaken from the very begining this recording is a disappointment. The Actors voices are flat and devoid of expression. As a result, the listener gets the impression that the characters treat their task with the same respect that they would place on a Disney movie.
After one disc of waiting for things to get better, I decided to try listening to the battle Of Helms Deep. Here too I found nothing but an endless monotone backed by poor sound effects.
If you are a true Tolkien fan or someone who wants to get the full magic of The Lord of the Rings I recommend the BBC production starring Ian Holm.

The Hobbit : The Enchanting Prelude to The Lord of the Rings
There and Back Again


I gave this book 5 stars because that was as many as I could give. If I could give more I would! This is an entertaining, captivating and imaginative book. Tolkein creates a magical world where you feel that anything can happen (which in all truth could)and the characters he makes are both lovable (Bilbo)and despisable (e.g.Smaug). For people who love fantasy, this is the best in that context that I have ever read, save a few other well known books by the same author. I don't believe that anyone has not heard of Tolkien by now, either because of the movie Lord of the Rings or because of his reputable books. In either case, those who have not read this book (and also The Lord of The Rings series, which is a sequel of sorts to The Hobbit)READ IT NOW!!!Don't be among the minority. You won't regret it, I promise.

The Lord of the Rings (Leatherette Collector's Edition)
the Lord of the rings is great


This is unquestionably THE best version of Lord of the Rings for serious fans. It's beautifully bound with golden elvish script embossed on the red leather, and the whole thing creates the feeling that you're reading the actual compilation of Bilbo, Frodo, and Sam. One of the book's most valuable features is it's lack of pictures -- other than diagrams of runes and symbols used upon the door of Moria and such -- allowing the readers to formulate their own imagery. Moreover, this edition is published as the story was meant to be read: with all three "books" in one (many uneducated folk scorned the 2001 movie's unsatisfying ending, which was meant to be merely a cliff-hanger leading into the immediately ensuing chapter). True, the size may render it unwieldy for younger fans (PLEASE take great care), but part of the treasure of this edition is its textile feel and weight, its "sprawl out in front of the fireplace" nature, for this is not a magazine to skim but a treasure trove to ponder and study. It contains a huge fold-out map with comprehensive place-names, as well as family trees and guides for translating the various runic languages. Another great feature is the archive of appendices proffering tidbits on everything from the fall of Numenor to the future of Aragorn and Arwen together, allowing immediate references for every occasion that an item piques your interest. Don't underestimate the value of the index, either, for help in looking up individual songs and riddles or creatures and people. As much as I love reading, this particular book has remained my most cherished posession since its introduction to our family 20 years ago. Together with the Collector's Edition of The Hobbit and BBC's radio broadcast performace on CD, I'm content to share with my family for generations to come the wealth of pleasure to be derived from this greatest of classics.

Rating: 5/5
The Two Towers (The Lord of the Rings, Book 2)
Better


This book is better than the first one as all the ground work has been laid and I was familiar and attached to all of the characters by this point. It was really interesting to discover more and learn more of the character Gollum and to meet other creatures and life which wanders Middle Earth. This book was FULL of surprises that I didn't see coming with a wonderful ending that kind of gave me the creeps. I'm about the start the third and final book.
