Not just revolutionary because it was groundbreaking, 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. --Paul Hughes --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Tolkien does a good job of creating a fantasy world with many interesting characters.
The movie, The Fellowship of the Ring has inspired me to read the set of fantasy classics by J.R.R Tolkien; The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.
