Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For over fifty years, J.R.R. Tolkien's peerless fantasy has accumulated

worldwide acclaim as the greatest adventure tale ever written.

No other writer has created a world as distinct as Middle-earth, complete

with its own geography, history, languages, and legends. And

no one has created characters as endearing as Tolkien's large-hearted,

hairy-footed hobbits. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings continues to

seize the imaginations of readers of all ages, and this new three-volume

paperback edition is designed to appeal to the youngest of them.

In ancient times the Rings of Power were crafted by the Elvensmiths,

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 . . .

Synopsis:

The Lord of the Rings, J.R.R. Tolkien's three-volume epic, is set in the imaginary world of Middle-earth - home to many strange beings, and most notably hobbits, a peace-loving "little people," cheerful and shy. Since its original British publication in 1954-55, the saga has entranced readers of all ages. It is at once a classic myth and a modern fairy tale. Critic Michael Straight has hailed it as one of the "very few works of genius in recent literature." Middle-earth is a world receptive to poets, scholars, children, and all other people of good will. Donald Barr has described it as "a scrubbed morning world, and a ringing nightmare world...especially sunlit, and shadowed by perils very fundamental, of a peculiarly uncompounded darkness." The story of ths world is one of high and heroic adventure. Barr compared it to Beowulf, C.S. Lewis to Orlando Furioso, W.H. Auden to The Thirty-nine Steps. In fact the saga is sui generis - a triumph of imagination which springs to life within its own framework and on its own terms.

Synopsis:

Tolkien's classic fantasy about the quest to save Middle-Earth--and the basis for Peter Jackson's Academy Award(-winning film trilogy--is now available in these Young Reader's Editions. Each book of the trilogy is available individually, or together in a three-volume paperback boxed set.
