J.R.R. Tolkien Boxed Set (The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings)
The Best!


I've only read the Lord of the Rings, but it's fabulous! I absolutely loved it! I also saw the movie and it was incredible! I definitely recommend seeing the movie and reading the book! The LOTR movie is better than the Harry Potter movie by far. It was a graceful turn from a book to movie! If you love the LOTR book, then you'll love the movie!

The Hobbit : The Enchanting Prelude to The Lord of the Rings
Gorgeous Illustrations: Best Design!


Whereas other reviews have focused on Tolkien's excellent story, I want to recommend Alan Lee's fantastic illustrations. Lee was one of two Tolkien illustrators called by Peter Jackson for the making of the trilogy film, The Lord of the Rings. His brilliance shines through in the recreation of Rivendell and the warm feel of Hobbiton. As a life-long fan of the Lord of the Rings, I have never been disappointed by Lee's interpretation of a scene or character. His artistic skill hits the mark dead center every time on every concept. In fact, his is one artist of a few (if not the only one) who are officially recognized by Tolkien's estate as a bard of Middle Earth. Therefore, the illustrations in this beautiful edition of a great book by the 20th century's best author are bound to appeal to you as you read it. In this book, the arguing trolls are just as I've imagined them, and the dwarves are like real people, not plump bodies with noses the size of their heads. The eagles, too, are glorious. I heartily recommend this edition of Tolkien's wonderful fantasy!

The Lord of the Rings
A Great Fantasy Book- They are Amongst the Best Published


These books, which are the full story of the One Ring, which is explained along with other matters in The Silmarillion (Written by Tolkien, but his son edited and published it on account of his father's death) are indeed one of the best if not the best fantasy books written. The plot is simple and intriguing at the same time. I love these books and find Tolkien to be a sheer genius, as he created and made the entire history of Middle-Earth, almost as detailed as a Bible. Something that may draw people away is racial comments, which are proved UNTRUE. Tolkien published the book and said it has nothing to do with outside affairs. The Orcs in these books are evil, and always considered so, as they are TRAINED to be evil, yes trained. Elves in these books are usually portrayed the greatest, but note that the Orcs came from Elves, which says that they cannot be perfect. Same with Hobbits, look at Smeagol (Gollum) who was a Hobbit and became a vile creature. Apart from that, I'll comment on how the book is so great. The incredible description of characters, which makes you feel like you actually know them. If you were to read the LotR, I would recommend to read The Silmarillion, first, followed by The Hobbit. Those two books are for those who really wish to know the series. It's still easy to read the LotR without being dumbfounded, but I think it is a wise choice to read these two. If the man takes his entire life making and building the history, and creating the languages and the people, you just have to know that his books must be excellent. Thankyou.

The Return of the King (The Lord of the Rings, Book 3)
The BEST book in the trilogy


One of the reasons I liked this book is because it gives a great veiw of the the bad guy(a really,really bad guy.I'm thinking Satan here)Bad guys are my weakness.I feel that if the bad guys aren't believable,the book won't hold together.(makes you kinda wonder what would have happened if Sauron got the Ring.I am now thinking "a stream of evil-looking red light zaps into the sky,a hurricane-thingy forms above Mount Doom complete with lightening,there is maniacal laughter...but,I'll let you draw your own conclusions)The beginning of the book is a tad boring,but don't lose faith,keep reading!Anyway in the last book,Frodo is captured by "Big baddie's"(Sauron's)minions.Sam goes to find him,into MORDOR!!!Help!Meanwhile,Gandalf and co. fight off Sauron's leiutenant,the Witch-King of somewhere,a real medusa(hideous)and Pippin wounds hims with an enchanted knife,and SPALT!!He's dead.After that,they go to Mount Doom and do,oh you know what,so I not sayin'.Oh,and a reveiwer from Canada wrote that Sauron shouldn't of been killed because "thats what gives the book its meaning",well,I have two things to say about that:#1 the third age(and the series)is coming to a close.The era of magic is over(this is when the world,or Middle-Earth,comes into the Middle Ages).And #2There in nothing in a book that compares(or that the reader has been waiting for more)to the climactic battle,in which,the villin is destroyed in a BIG bang.Anyway,I wish Tolken was still around to write more,as I still have questions: what happened to the Blue Wizards?What did Gandalf do before he met Bilbo?What..........(enough,already!)

J.R.R. Tolkien Boxed Set (The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings)
Carefully, carefully, with the plates!


I've been rereading the LOTR here and there for the first time in years. I had some unexpected emotional reactions to sections I well remembered, but in middle age they had a new impact on me. I see now why science fiction was such a disappointment to me that I gave up reading it. I no longer read fiction at all, but if all fiction were like this, odds are good that...I still love the old red and black covers of the Ballantine paperback edition from thirty years ago, along with that huge poster of the same images, but would read these books if they had no covers and the spines had let go of all the pages. These books are world famous and popular for good reason. Be sure to read all these before the movies start to come out starting this Christmas, because the books can only be better. I'm sure it will help to have some idea what is supposed to be going on in the movie. And of course, buying it now lets you say truthfully, "oh, in the book there was so much more," while acting as if you read them years before.Check out "The Elder Edda", one of the many medieval sources which contributed mythos to Tolkien's masterworks. There's a fairly new edition and translation available in paperback. Look up some of the dwarves' names and pretend to be surprised. Not only are all of Bilbo's companions found there, Gandalf's name, as well as three otherwise unknown dwarves mentioned in "Fellowship of the Ring", are found in the same passage of the Edda.Also worth reading, from the perspective of mythos, is the Ring of the Nibelungs saga (Siegfried); Orlando Furioso (a renaissance era parody of the epic poem genre); Beowulf (if you must); and Plato (the Greek philosopher), the dialogues "Timaeus" and "Critias" (the source of the Atlantis story).Tolkien was no plagiarist, however; "the Hobbit" and the LOTR trilogy are not merely original works, they may be the reason geeks play dungeons and dragons, computer games like Tombraider, and dress up for the Society for Creative Anachronism, as well as write thousands of pages of sword and sorcery and other fantasy fiction.Read these already, but no longer have your copies? Buy new ones and re-experience these masterpieces. Haven't read them? Know that I envy you the experience of reading them for the first time.Buy them, read them, enjoy them. Highly recommended!

The Fellowship of the Ring (The Lord of the Rings, Book 1)
An amazing novel


The Fellowship of the Ring is one of the best novels I have read. Buying Tolkien's novels for people is a great gift because they read them over and over. I keep reading the series each year because it is that good. I also recommend reading this novel slowly, because the depth of his writing is amazing. If one reads slowly, and let Tolkien's words sink in, imagine what he describes, the reader will be taken to a magical place. Each time I read this novel, I notice something I didn't before, and it is always entertaining. I noticed this time that in the past, I read to quickly and did not allow myself to see the landscapes he paints.What happens. The book begins with a continuation of the Hobbit, and Bilbo's magic ring has been found to have a dark past. The Ring must be destroyed. But Bilbo passes the ring on before this is known, and the quest is thrust upon his heir, Frodo. Frodo leaves with his friends and meets elves and Tom Bombadil, before he reaches Rivendell. The movie leaves out some stuff. Once Frodo and the other hobbits make it to Rivendell they continue with five others. Their goal is to destroy the ring, but they must go to Mordor, and the road is long and tough. The novel ends with the fellowship being broken. Boromir's horn has not yet sounded.

I've read the Lord of the Rings twice, and each time, I have a hard time putting it down. I've got my son reading it now.

The Hobbit : The Enchanting Prelude to The Lord of the Rings
A large adventure for a small person


Wow, where do I begin this review, first of let me say that JRR Tolkien is one of the best storytellers of all time. He is my favorite along with Stephen King. This book is full of surprises and twists that will kepp you turning. I don't really agree with some other reviews that it is intended for children and adults. I am 17 years old and I still love this type of story-telling, with magic and dragons. This book, in fact, is one of my favorite. Tolkien does a fantastic job of character development and describing the surroundings. I was enthralled with the ending. I really could not find anything wrong with the book, it is consistent and it kept me turning the pages. It also does a good job setting the pace to the other Lord of the Rings books. If you are ever bored and with a few hours to kill, definately pick this one up.

My Review of The Hobbit


POSSIBLY THE BEST BOOK OF ALL TIME, AND IT'S ONLY IN 300 PAGES! The Hobbit is about Bilbo Baggins. One day, Gandalf, a wizard, fooled Bilbo into an adventure. The adventure is to get back "stolen treasure" from Smaug and bring it back to the dwarves of Laketown.I cant describe in words how great this book is! You'll have to read it for yourself!
