Overview

From the New York Times best-selling author of The Two Towers Visual Companion comes a lavishly illustrated keepsake guide to The Return of the King. As Frodo, Sam, and Gollum slowly make their way into the depths of the Dark Lord's realm of Mordor in their desperate quest to destroy the One Ring, the scattered members of the fellowship, now scarred and battered from the Battle of Helm's Deep, must journey to the Gondorian stronghold of Minas Tirith for a last stand against the might of Sauron and his evil minions.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The Photo Guide and Visual Companion are simply collections of screen shots with a minimum of text-very YA. The real gems here are Art of and (especially) Weapons and Warfare, true fan books that detail costumes, props, and set designs through photos and concept drawings. Gollum is a bit of a novelty for those interested in computer special effects, as actor Serkis, who provided Gollum's voice and physical movements, explains how graphics were used to create the screen character. The indie spirit A film doesn't need to be a sweeping epic featuring a cast of thousands to be good. The market for independent films is huge, so no film collection is complete without a few of these titles. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
School Library Journal
Adult/High School-The first book essentially retells the story of the title film and has uneven picture quality. Weapons fleshes out the world created in the movies by discussing the arms and armor of the various races in Middle-earth, both historically and from the time that the films take place. The informative, interesting text is supplemented by many gorgeous pictures. Readers who have questions about anything they saw in the film, from orcs to the Witch-King of Angmar to the Fountain Guards of Gondor, can probably find the answers here. The author treats these cultures and artifacts as if they were straight-up history. A lot of thought, effort, and love obviously went into creating Middle-earth, and much of it shows up in these pages.-Susan Salpini, Fairfax County Public Schools, VA Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
