Continuing the story of The Hobbit, this three-volume boxed set of Tolkien's epic masterpiece, The Lord of the Rings, features striking black covers based on Tolkien's own design, the definitive text, and three maps including a detailed map of Middle-earth. Sauron, the Dark Lord, has gathered to him all the Rings of Power - the means by which he intends to rule Middle-earth. All he lacks in his plans for dominion is the One Ring - the ring that rules them all - which has fallen into the hands of the hobbit, Bilbo Baggins. In a sleepy village in the Shire, young Frodo Baggins finds himself faced with an immense task, as his elderly cousin Bilbo entrusts the Ring to his care. Frodo must leave his home and make a perilous journey across Middle-earth to the Cracks of Doom, there to destroy the Ring and foil the Dark Lord in his evil purpose. Since it was first published in 1954, 'The Lord of the Rings' has been a book people have treasured. Steeped in unrivalled magic and otherworldliness, its sweeping fantasy has touched the hearts of young and old alike.

What is their to say about The Lord of the Rings that hasn't been said before? Not much really - it's a fantastic fantasy story - amazingly conceived and written by J.R.R. Tolkien with fantastic creatures and magical storytelling.

I felt I had to write a review of this boxset however, simply because it's exactly what has allowed me to persuade other people to read this landmark creation. It comes in 3 smaller books which are not as daunting to the uninitiated unlike the many huge tome versions available.

This boxset allows you to read each beautifully crafted part of the story in a handy sized book. I would recommend it for it practicality but that would be belittling the creation that these books house.

A magnificent story in a magnificent boxset.

 Great Books at a Great Price!

I've been a great fan of Lord of the Rings from its release and I thought it would be a good idea to consider actually reading the books. I thought I might as well give it a go, and I did. I will never regret it! The books tell you so much that you do not get to hear in the films. If you did not have a full understanding in the film, the books tell you all the little details and tell a more interesting story than the films. It is a really good price for these masterpieces and is totally worth reading again. Great for big Lord of the Rings fans!
