I almost gave this book 3 stars, because of what I think it lacked, but it deserves the other star just because the movies were so good! If given the choice, I might have given it 3.65 stars.
I was expecting much more - actors' biographies, the screenwriters' methods and decisions in writing the screenplay, a timeline of the making of the trilogy, etc. Also I hoped that it would be more celebratory of the achievements of this landmark film series. This was impossible since the book was published prior to the release of the Two Towers. So that's my fault for not looking at the publication date.
In a nutshell, the book is a premature summary that fails to pay tribute to the entire trilogy. It makes a mediocre collector's item that I could have done without. One star for information and another for quality photos.
Sibley's writing style can be awkward at times, but that doesn't spoil it for me.
