4 3 small tomespuzzledmonkey | 17/07/2007 | See all puzzledmonkey's reviews (23)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.
