This box set set contains a must have for every fantasy or Lord of the Rings fan. It contains four novels: the silmarillion, Unfinished Tales, Sir Gawin and the Green Knight, and the Tolkien Reader. These four novels help the reader delve deeper into the world which Tolken himself created. If you are not a fan of middle eaarth i would not recomennd this for you but if you have read the Lord of the Rings you may want to read the Silmarillion and the Unfinished Tales. These books help the understand some of the things that were not mentioned or left out in the LOTR trilogy.
