Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
This official movie guide is your all-access backstage pass to the film adaptation of The Lord of the Rings. Featuring stunning photographs of the cast, sets, and costumes, plus background info on the stars of the movie, this beautifully illustrated volume takes readers into the heart of the film's production. The book showcases the monumental task of building the sets, which transformed New Zealand into Tolkien's magical realm of Middle-earth, a feat that took several years.
Library Journal
A behind-the-scenes look at bringing the book to the screen that is chock-full of pics from the flick. If the film is as big as predicted (think Star Wars big!), you might want to buy a few copies of this and the Visual Companion volume. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
School Library Journal
Adult/High School-A complete behind-the-scenes look at the making of the trilogy and the cast and production crew who worked on the films. There are full-color photos of the sets, cast, costumes, and the New Zealand locations where the films were shot. This movie guide is a good place to get an overview of the stories and how this talented group of people worked to bring them to life. The book begins with an interesting interview and biography of writer/producer/director Peter Jackson. Interviews with the principal cast members and crew are also included. A book for students interested in moviemaking, fantasy, and J. R. R. Tolkien's work.-Patricia White-Williams, Kings Park Library, Fairfax County, VA Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

    All you need to know

    I'm a fan of the movie and the books! some people said that this book was too short, but i think it's pretty much all you really need to know. if it were longer, it would be too long. i give this book 5 stars because they stuck to the basics. i've read this book so many times i've almost got it memorized!!!

    Take A Slice Of Tolkien Home!!!

    This book was well written, truly a great book, but I must say that it should have been four-times its size maybe 310 pages or so, but other than that, it was all right. I loved reading it, and learning some behind the camera information. I loved it, but should have been much longer, much longer. I believe the author should have added more pictures from the film, and more outstanding interviews with the actors, and Peter Jackson. Also I do believe that Howard Shore should have had a section of his own in the book, the score for the film was beyond great, beyond the best, it was perfection. You thought James Horner, and John Williams were good, Howard makes them all look like rats, other than that, it was all very good. Loved, can't wait till august 6th, the date that will live on forever.

    THE BEST MOVIE OF ALL TIME

    After seeing this movie, it has expanded my imagination beyond anyone's belief. It has shown that such a small thing make a big difference in the World.

    They made a boo-boo

    The book was pretty cool, but they made a mistake on page 17 (Seeing Tolkien's World). They call something the Brandywine Ferry. In the books (and the movie) there's a Brandywine Bridge and a Buckleberry Ferry, not a mixture between the two =(

    A Definite Must Have

    I have been keeping up with the production of the film for over a year now and have seen many sneek peek pictures online, but I was pleasantly surpised to find that I actually had not seen some of the pictures in this book. Most impressive is the two page layout of the Rivendell model. Even if you think you have seen it all, this book is worth the money.
