Editorial Reviews

New York Times
A unique, wholly realized other world, evoked from deep in the well of Time, massively detailed, absorbingly entertaining, profound in meaning.
Library Journal

School Library Journal
Adult/High School-This official, authorized companion to the movie will be helpful to anyone wanting background about Middle-earth, the ancient history of the rings of power, and the main characters and creatures in J. R. R. Tolkien's work. Readers will learn the history of the free peoples of Middle-earth, hobbits, elves, dwarves, and men. The book ends with the Istari, an Elvish term meaning an order or brotherhood of wizards; Gandalf the Grey and Saruman the White are highlighted in this section. Finally, the Dark Powers are featured, including the Orcs, Uruk-Hai, and the Nazgul. The photos are excellent and give readers a good idea of what the characters are all about and their roles in the movie. Anyone interested in a brief history of Tolkien's novel, filmmaking, and cinematography will find this an entertaining read.-Patricia White-Williams, Kings Park Library, Fairfax County, VA Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
