Overview
An epic detailing the Great War of the Ring, a struggle between good and evil in Middle-Earth, in which the tiny Hobbits play a key role.

Publishers Description
Three-volume boxed set edition lavishly illustrated in full color by Alan Lee

One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them

In ancient times the Rings of Power were crafted by the Elven-smiths, and Sauron, The Dark Lord, forged the One Ring, filling it with his own power so that he could rule all others. But the One Ring was taken from him, and though he sought it throughout Middle-earth still it remained lost to him. After many ages it fell, by chance, into the hands of the hobbit, Bilbo Baggins.

From his fastness in the Dark Tower of Mordor, Sauron's power spread far and wide. He gathered all the Great Rings to him, but ever he searched far and wide for the One Ring that would complete his dominion.

On his eleventy-first birthday, Bilbo dissapeared bequeathing to his young cousin, Frodo, the Ruling Ring, and a perilous quest: to journey across Middle-earth, deep into the shadow of the Dark Lord and destroy the Ring by casting it into the Cracks of Doom.

The Lord of the Rings tells of the great quest undertaken by Frodo and the Fellowship of the Ring: Gandalf the wizard, the hobbits Merry, Pippin and Sam, Gimli the Dwarf, Legolas the Elf, Boromir of Gondor, and a tall, mysterious stranger called Strider.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Absolutely Amazing   Jun 14, 2008
Being a Lord of the Rings fan for 7 years, I decided that it was time to buy an illustrated set of it. I'm so happy that I bought this one!!

The dust covers are very beautiful with illustrations by Alan Lee. The box is also illustrated and the books fit in very good. Every book has ,under the dust cover, the actual cover: nice red fabric with in gold the title etc. It looks very 'Tolkien-ish'
The books are all illustrated, about .. well I haven't counted them but there are lots and lots of beautiful illustrations. They are all a bit 'watery', but it fits the mood of the book.
I read complaints about the glossy pages. Personally, I don't have any trouble reading, even if there's bright light. The pages are smooth, but do not reflect much light.

So, I don't really see one negative thing about the box - except that the books are very tight in the box and it is difficult to get them out.

If you are a real Lord of the Rings fan, please buy this edition. It's great!
 
Wonderful Reading Experience  May 20, 2008
I've owned two editions of The Lord of the Rings before this, both were one-volume versions.

These hardcovers are brilliantly impressively large, the paper quality is good, and they are bound in a red cloth/material under the glossy printed jackets.

Most Lord of the Rings fans will be familiar with Alan Lee's illustrations already, and they serve this set well.

I probably read the previous two versions I had of this book 40+ times over, and I imagine I'll read them more often with this set. The break-up into three, and the larger size, makes this book a somewhat more leisurely read, and I found myself giving more time to each chapter, reading it slower, absorbing more than I ever had earlier.

The only drawback, as already mentioned, is that the paper used in the book as a whole is glossy, and therefore gives some glare if you read it with white light falling on it directly. Not that big an issue, though, since you're more likely to be lounging about when reading this book :)
 
Nice set edition  May 15, 2008
The books are great, I got this set as a gift. They were well received. Seems like something to 'collect' more than to read. Nice illustrations...
 
Beautiful set - but can be hard to read  May 2, 2008
This review is for this edition only. This is a beautiful set with great artwork (I wish it had more). I love hardbacks and the print is centered nicely on the page for easy reading from that perspective. The size of the books, though larger than most, is not a problem for me as it was for some, but in my house, sitting on the couch, there was reflection coming off the glossy pages that caused me to have to hold the books in certain positions to see the words clearly. I believe my eyes got tired faster than if it had been on matte paper. I bought this set to last and read to my children and maybe, one day, my grandchildren. I will finish this set with my children, but may buy another set with matte paper to read to my grandchildren. On second thought, being only 70% through with the first book, I may buy that other set before I'm done.
 
Great Worldbuilding   Apr 25, 2008
Tolkien is a master at worldbuilding and characterization. But I did find much of the books BORING. I mean fall asleep BORING. ZZZZZZZZZZZ. Some of it even silly in some aspects. Like Tom Bombadil. ? He is very LONG WINDED in describing the travel of the hobbits, especially in the first book. Which almost put me to sleep. He describes every nuance and rock, but after four pages of reading about the rocks and grass it gets a bit overdone. But I did enjoy the books. Just be prepared for more than a few chapters of fluff here and there that really aren't nessisary. Once again he's writing for world immersion. A great read though and an amazing world to explore. But not one of my all time favorite series. In fact I don't think I'll ever read Tolkien again, because I was that bored.
