  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!

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.
