J.R.R. Tolkien Boxed Set (The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings)
WARNING: This book might lead to addiction..


This book is undoubtedly the greatest fantasy epic ever. Tolkien is a pioneer of fantasy writing, and a creator of a whole world, with a history as complete as that of our world. As you read this book, Middle Earth comes alive in your mind - the places, the people, the events. Each place and event is described in detail, and yet there is room for your own imagination to play a part. The book is about the mission of a group nine (an Elf, a Dwarf, four Hobbits, two Men and a Wizard guide) who have to destroy a Ring in order to put an end to the growing Dark power of Sauron the Evil, and save Middle Earth from Darkness. The book is written from the point of view of the Hobbits who are forced to undertake this journey because of the legacy of Bilbo Baggins from "The Hobbit". The first part of the book (The Fellowship of the Ring) starts on a light note, and here, the Hobbits are still simple folk, fond of good food and drink, and the Shire is still an innocent place. As the journey to destroy the ring and defeat Sauron the Dark Lord begins, things begin to get more serious, and one can note the change in the tone and style starting with The Two Towers. This second part is perhaps the most interesting, and contains the core of the book. The third part, The Retrun of the King, is mostly about the last big war between Good and Evil. Each scene in the battle is described in great detail, and one can close ones eyes and see the battle in the Fields of Pelennor. Although Good ultimately prevails over Evil, the book is still a little tragic, for things can never be the same or regain the old innocence. Middle Earth is changed forever, and the personalities of the Hobbits have undergone a great change too. The Third Age of Middle Earth has come to an end, and when the members of the fellowship part, I felt sad that it was all over..The appendices at the end of the book are very useful. Since the events in the two parts of the Return of the King take place at the same time, it helps to refer to the dates-events table in Appendix B to know what events took place on the same day. At the end, I was converted into a real Tolkien buff, wanting to know more about the Middle Earth and its history and people. The Silmarillion, which narrates the history of Middle Earth is the book where many questions raised in the Lord of the Rings are answered. I highly recommend this book even to those who are first time fantasy readers.

The Hobbit : The Enchanting Prelude to The Lord of the Rings
An adventurous Tale


I loved this story; it had all the elements a good story needs. It had great mythical lands, hobbits, a band of hostile dwarves, a mage, goblins, trolls, and many other mythical creatures. The descriptions of the places were in-depth, and colourful. The plot was great; though the original quest was petty, it turned into a wonderful adventure.

The Hobbit : The Enchanting Prelude to The Lord of the Rings
great book


Bilbo baggins is a happy little hobbit that lives in bag end, a small hobbit town. One day, alot of little dwarves come to his door, one by one, these little dwarves keep showing up. Then, his good friend, Gandalf shows up. Gandalf is a very powerful wizard whom Bilbo looks up to. Gandalf had come to Bilbo's door with all the dwarves because he had an adventure, or rather a quest for little bilbo baggins. One of the dwarves was related to a king that ruled a moutain. He had many riches and he treasured them so much that he filled the tunnels in the mountain with the treasure. One day a huge dragon invaded the mountain and horded all the gold and had been guarding it to the present day that Gandalf went to Bag End to Bilbo's little hobbit home. So Bilbo and Gandalf and the 14 Dwarves set out to the mountain. The mountain was set in the North Mountain chain. They went through the Dark Woods and the hills and through various mountain chains. They finally got to the mountain and they hid in a cave. Finally, Bilbo found a way to defeat the dragon and he was a hero. He had all the gold and riches he could ever want.The theme of "The Hobbit", I think is that size does not matter. It is what is inside that counts.
I thought that "The Hobbit" was an extremely good novel. It not only taught a lesson but was intertaining also.

The Hobbit : The Enchanting Prelude to The Lord of the Rings
A Great Read for Young and Old


The Hobbit is a fantasy legend. This is where the world of Middle Earth was created, and this book is a classic. Tolkien develops a world of conflict, and diversity, in which you are instantly sucked into. The character development is absolutely spectacular, and is a most reader not only for fantasy fans, but for fans of superb literature.

The History of the Lord of the Rings
Good, but some times Slow..


The history of the lord of the rings is a great setof books that tells much more lore about the lord of the ringd that is left out in other books. It is great if you wish to expand yout knowledge of middle earth but if your looking for a traditional story this isn't really it ( they are acollection of the lore of middle earth).

The Lord of the Rings
IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT, YOU SHOULD READ IT AGAIN


I know many people have different tastes in literature, and that is fine. But for someone to read the Lord of the Rings and say it had no feelings and wasn't great is missing the picture. The story is about myth and fantasy. Before this work, how much imagination was present in modern literature? Tolkien spent most of his life creating a world, describing every stone and blade of grass, and forming entire languages for its inhabitants. When I first read it, it was difficult to get involved in the story. So I read it again at a later time, and you know what? Each time I read it I discover something I missed before, and only then can you truly discover the magic of Tolkien's work. Please don't be too hasty in your judgement !!!!

The Return of the King (The Lord of the Rings, Book 3)
This Is The Book Of The Century


This book is very good. Just like a Laker win! Do you know the muffin man? Well, this book is very intense at some points, and very surprising. It's like "The Book Of The Century" My favorite character Legolas becuase he is swift and is immortal. He is my Hero. This book is soooo good that i would read it again even though it took me almost 3 months to finish it! I Think J.R.R Tolkien is a mastermind, and knows how to get some attention!ps.

Collector's Edition of The Lord Of The Rings


This is the most beautiful edition of this work. Tolkien has always been my favorite author since I first read his works as a teenager. The intense dedication to create a complete world, with history and even languages amazes me each time I read it. And I've read it several times. This will be the second copy of the Collector's Edition I have purchased. It's the perfect gift for a Tolkien fan, new or old. It's terribly lovely and I simply adore it.

The Lord of the Rings (Leatherette Collector's Edition)
Why people love them so much, I will never know.


Many people belive these books to be some of the greatest books ever written. I, on the other hand have read the Lord of the Rings trilogy and do not believe them to be that good. Sure the story portrays a classic theme of good vs. evil, and the plot is a good one. However, these books are slow moving and not very exciting. In fact, the books are pretty boring overall. There isn't enough action and there are usually long, drawn-out conversations. I really don't believe that these books are worth reading, and if you really want to know what they are about, watch the movies. They are excellent and a lot more exciting.
