I've enjoyed Tolkien's Hobbit and Lord of the Rings since first reading them in my teenage years. The stories are well known and timeless, and for anyone who has not yet enjoyed them in the written form, it is highly worthwhile (whether you are young or old, I might add).
I've re-visited them quite a few times over the years, and when the Kindle editions became available, and for a very reasonable price, I decided to grab them both. I've examined the formatting and functionality, and have found that they are well done Kindle editions with fully functioning table of contents and links. The maps and illustrations are just barely readable on the displays of any of the black-and-white regular Kindle models, and even when viewed on a full sized color display (on my iMac, for example), they are small and somewhat blurred. That is really the only disadvantage to this Kindle version that I think is worth pointing out.
Overall these Kindle versions bring the
The Lord of the Rings
to my favorite reading device, and I can now have them with me at all times to enjoy conveniently wherever I may happen to be.
(Note regarding pricing for the Kindle versions - I was able to get both of these Kindle editions for three bucks each here on Amazon, so it is worth keeping an eye on them as they do go on sale from time to time).
