I first read The Lord of the Rings when I was in middle school, and I've been wanting to re-read it for quite a while. The writing is beautifully complex and some of the characters are complex as well. This book is not easy to read at all and requires patience. There were a few times when I went back to read a few things. I loved this book the first time I read it, but after reading it again for the first time since middle school I appreciate how beautiful this book really is so much more. The strongest themes in this book are friendship and trust. The main character, Frodo Baggins volunteers himself to take on a huge task that has major implications if he fails, and certain races but their trust in him to save the world in which everyone lives. Frodo's task not only takes him and his companions on a dangerous journey, it takes readers on his journey as well. There is added material once the book is over. There are some appendixes, I read most of them as they helped me to better understand the story. The only appendixes that I read were A, B, and C as I felt that these were the most useful. Appendix A had a lot of really useful information about the lines of the different kings because the lines of kings can get a little confusing. There was also a back story of Aragorn and Arwen that I really loved reading. Appendix B contains a chronological timeline of events that happened in the Westlands, and Appendix C has quite a few family trees that were very interesting to look at. I also loved the maps, they are simply stunning and really give a sense of where everything in Middle Earth is. If you love high fantasy and aren't afraid of a challenge, I definitely recommend reading this book, after reading The Hobbit, or There and Back Again of course!

This is an awesome edition of LOTR! I am not sure if the cover is actually suede but it sure feels like it. It's cheaper--and also much better bound--than the one volume regular hardcover edition that is nowhere near as nice. If there is only one regret I have is that there aren't big, fold-out maps; instead it has the condensed map of Mordor, and that of Middle Earth (divided into four parts) just like the hardcover edition. This book is well worth the price I paid for it.

I bought the book at my local B&N store and it was in perfect condition. The cover draws you to it. I can't stop reading it. I'm a huge fan of the Lord of the Rings and this was a wonderful addition.

My 15 year old son cannot put it down. He first read The Hobbit and then asked for this book. He loves this action packed (classic) book and it has renewed his love of reading.

I read through this for an hour the other day at B&N. It's and excellent installment to the Tolkien anthology. The cover looks and feels like suede leather and the overall size of the book is comfortable enough to snuggle up with. Great if you're looking to upgrade your collection. I don't know how they're getting away with selling it for under 30 but, personally, I'm going to try to grab it the second I have the chance.
