    This encourages you to read others

    For people who have read the LOTR and the hobbit, you should continue to read the others, such as the Unfinished Tales, Book of Lost Tales, Silmarillions and etc

    Nice add to a LOTR Collection.

    I bought this just recently. It's a nifty pocket size book for reading anywhere, it's great to figure out things you want to know. If you have read the LOTR books and forgot about something and wan't to know about it (or you have only watched the movies and your not sure about a few things), this just may have what you need to know right infront of you. It's great when trying to find info about a character(etc.). It has book summaries, location info, Middle Earth info, origins, character info, movie info, and a lot of other misc. stuff that you can just look up quick and easy. It also has random facts and info about JRR Tolkien and many other people accosiated with Lord of the Rings that you probably never knew about before. (I didn't know some things!) It also includes some nice quality photos from the movie (really nice!). It's great to just read when your bored, or anytime at all! It's a really nice book to just have. Recomended to those who have read the LOTR Trilogy and/or have enjoyed the movies.
