Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

The Lord of the Rings is a must-read for all fantasy genre fans. Those who have previously read The Hobbit will find The Lord of the Rings as a familiar time and place to return to. This epic fantasy book centers on a hobbit named Frodo Baggins and his loyal group of companions, called The Fellowship of the Ring.

The Lord of the Rings is a three-book compilation that includes The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of The King. The book follows the struggles that a simple hobbit, Frodo, and his friends encounter while trying to destroy an all-powerful ring to save Middle-earth. The Lord of the Rings takes place in a fantasy world that is not too unlike the English countryside, though it has characters that range from hobbits to Elven creatures.

The author, J.R.R. Tolkien, uses his command of the English language to beautifully weave a tale like no other, which has laid the groundwork for many of the most popular fantasy books today. Widely regarded as one of the genre's most loved works, The Lord of the Rings has garnered worldwide acclaim and praise from critics and fans alike. The book has been adapted into movies, games, radio, artwork, and many other media.

The Lord of the Rings is the third-best-selling novel of all time and should be required reading for all fans of the namesake movie series.

From Publishers Weekly

Originally broadcast in 1981 on BBC Radio, this full-cast adaptation of Tolkien's epic trilogy is justifiably regarded as a classic; unfortunately, in 2008, it faces inevitable comparison with Peter Jackson's films. While Jackson had stunning visuals, purists may find this simpler adaptation more to their taste. The radio version remains, in some ways, more faithful to the original trilogy. The extensive cuts to the narrative mean that much of Tolkien's poetic description and a degree of emotional resonance are lost, but narrator Gerard Murphy gives what remains the appropriate gravity. Most of the dialogue is pure Tolkien, and the fine cast does it justice. Ian Holm (who appeared as Bilbo in the films) offers a mature, nuanced portrayal of Frodo that is far truer to the text than Elijah Wood's wide-eyed innocent approach. (On the other hand, Sean Astin's accent and inflections as Sam are so similar to the audiobook's Bill Nighy's, one might suspect that Astin studied this recording before filming.) The 12th CD is devoted to a selection of songs from the books, set to original music. (Sept.)
