Author:J.R.R.Tolkein From:26/Aug/ 17 ,To:16/sep/17 Pages:1031[the felowhip of the ring,two towers,return of the king] Verdict: 4,1/2 stars #HighlyRecommended

Discription:”A fantastic starter set for new Tolkien fans or readers interested in rediscovering the magic of Middle-earth, this three-volume box set features paperback editions of the complete trilogy — The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King — each with art from the New Line Productions feature film on the cover. J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings trilogy is a genuine masterpiece. The most widely read and influential fantasy epic of all time, it is also quite simply one of the most memorable and beloved tales ever told. Originally published in 1954, The Lord of the Rings set the framework upon which all epic/quest fantasy since has been built. Through the urgings of the enigmatic wizard Gandalf, young hobbit Frodo Baggins embarks on an urgent, incredibly treacherous journey to destroy the One Ring. This ring — created and then lost by the Dark Lord, Sauron, centuries earlier — is a weapon of evil, one that Sauron desperately wants returned to him. With the power of the ring once again his own, the Dark Lord will unleash his wrath upon all of Middle-earth. The only way to prevent this horrible fate from becoming reality is to return the Ring to Mordor, the only place it can be destroyed. Unfortunately for our heroes, Mordor is also Sauron’s lair. The Lord of the Rings trilogy is essential reading not only for fans of fantasy but for lovers of classic literature as well…” SOURCE:GOODREADS

Firstly we all konw the story of the lord of the rings very well[I Guess],Its a very long read but it worth reading The book has mysterious magic of holding with it . I am a book critic as for more detail please visit my site link given down below https://bookwyrm874.wordpress.com

So let the review starts. Cons:Book has many places where ,complicated names are there like of places and people.They are in a huge number which you think you can clear with the passage of the book but NO.With the passage of the book you get so used to of that names which you will know that it is of no use at all. I also mention that its just a con but it is required for that type of writing style. “There’s very less work of writing in which I have to find cons ,and in real this is THAT book

“It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to. J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings (The Lord of the Rings, #1-3)”

Pros:There are lot of pros in this book by which you miss the book alot after completion and makes you to remember the book and the journey of reading it for life long. The writing style is so simple yet efective at its best.The change from the third eye prespective to ,second person writing is AWSM.You always know who is saying to whom.There is a identical voices for each and every charecter by which it make you easy to read.

You wanted the end so desperately and in the end you miss book’s writing and especially its characters.

The book has a very balanced notes about describtion .By saying balance ,not a lot ,not less just the best amount you to imagine what Tolkein wants to show you.

Poems-its so simple yet effective Whenever a poem comes in book i am already thinking ,how someone can be so creative that creating a poem respect to the situation . The charecters are best as it can be .When story takes the twist in heroic Frodo comes ,when scare ,or confusion comes pippin and merry is there For mystery Mithradir is there Bravery .Aragorn. The story is very balanced and interesting. The story deserves a applause as the fluidity of story is without any vicosity. Every story lover gonna love this book . The story is long ,but it does’nt matter as it has the strong gripping power. At last highly recommended and special bonus for fantasy lover.

      1. Time not being spent on a worthy read isn’t an issue (as now I know it’s worth reading). The issue, in fact, is spending all of my time on it leaving everything else aside (which is scary).
        But will definitely read it some day.🤓

  2. I have only watched the film. I know that books are 100 times better that the movies created by it. Thank you for the detailed post it is very helpful for people like me. I usually first read the book and than watch the movie… but now I decided to do the opposite. After seeing the film I took the decision not the read the book, so I just started reading “The hitchhiker’s guide to the galaxy”. Have you read it? Do you think it is worth reading?

  3. Nice Post! I liked your pros and cons take on this book.
    I was a resident assistant in college and had not watched this movie before, so during training, one of the weekends, my fellow RAs decided to have a LOTR’s movie marathon for me. I watched ALL the movies through the night with them…..and what woke me up screaming that morning?..Gollem!! 🙂
