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.

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.

The Hobbit : The Enchanting Prelude to The Lord of the Rings
Great book, one of the best


This was a great book of how a hobbit named Bilbo comes out of an ordinary boring life
and joins a bunch dworfs in a long and dangerous journey to come out victorious. And live the rest of his life not so boring.
It shows the heart of a true hero in the most leastlikely spot. I think anybody who likes fantasy should deffinatly read.
One note on the sequel the Fellowship of the Ring, it's also a great book but is a little confusing at the end

PERFECT I LIKED THIS BOOK IT WAS GREAT!500000000 STARS!


I really liked this book and to all you people who think this book sucked, you're all stupid jerks! This was a perfect series. I didn't want to read these books because my mom said they were good and I didn't want to reveal she was right, but I got a big shock. I have always been the biggest fan of mythology[dwarves,elves etc,] and then this book blew me away.My favorite people were Gandalf and Aragorn. The detail was written perfectly and I "was actually in the book". The most amazing part was how Gandalf always showed up just in the nick of time. I was amazed at how Frodo and Sam escaped the dangers of their journey-especially Shelob. I had nightmares about her. But I was still amazed at the end when there was a big fight at the Shire. I would be so lucky if I wrote this series because I would be so proud. This was a magical series and it swept me off my feet. I really enjoyed how Legolas and Gimli grew a strong relationship and at the beginning of the end when Aragorn was crowned king.I was astonished at the beauty that Tolkien described of Galadriel. I was enjoyed at the perkiness of Tom Bombadil. AHH! HELP! I'm being attacked by a..... a Gollum? Just kidding. And I cried when Frodo had left with Gandalf and the others and left Sam and Merry and Pippen behind. I know I could use over a ton of thousands of words to describe this series completeltv but yet I couldn't describe it clearly because of its magic and its magical effect it had on me. But I know if you would like to know more about this magical series, you should READ IT FOR YOURSELF! WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE TO LOSE? SEE NOTHING! And what would you get to gain? The knowledge that you have read one of the most ENCHANTING SERIES OF THE WHOLE HISTORY OF THE EARTH! This was a magical series of books and it swept me off into another land. I really do advise you to read this set of enchanting books. You'll enjoy it- I know I did. And it won't be a waste of time. I can assure you you will be satisfied with the mysteries this book holds. I really wish they would never have stopped telling this story.

Absolute must Read


Tolkien is my favorite. No one even comes close. If you're going to read the triology - I strongly suggest you start with The Hobbit. It's a great story - very engaging and will give you a lot of insight as you go on to the three more indepth stories.
