I loved this book. It is full of fantasy, beautiful descriptions, and is a story that you will love from beginning 'til you get to the last page!

Wolf Lahti, January 19, 2012 (view all comments by Wolf Lahti)
Although the writing may be a little dated for today's reading public, this classic has a richness far beyond that imparted by the films. If you have seen only the Peter Jackson movies, you have not experienced The Lord of the Rings. Tolkien is the background radiation of all modern fantasy, and, for good or ill, this work informs all such works that have been written since its publication.

Most of the elements in the story are not original to Tolkien, but he offers almost an embarrassment of riches - most authors would have taken one hundredth of his ideas and made a novel out of them. And Tolkien did something that hitherto no one had done: he took an epic tale of kings and vast armies and told it from the viewpoint of the little people - in this case literally. (This is why I become incensed when I see some publisher promoting a book about epic kings and vast armies as being "in the Tolkien tradition".)

If you haven't read this yet, it probably isn't what you think.

What can I say about this classic book? It has a little of everything... action and romance, history and humor, and so on. I waited several years to read this book but now that I have, I re-read it almost every year.

I am a reader. Nuff said? I read big books, little books, fiction, non-fiction. Most books are worth one read. SOme books you might visit again. Only a few books are of the calibre that you can read and reread them and still enjoy them. Tolkien's Triolgy is one of those. I have them in hard copy and now I have them for reading on my ereader (BeBook).

As I have finished reading them AGAIN, I am still amazed at the quality of writing and the ability Tolkien had in weaving a story.

In fact, I can assure you, this last time will not be the last time I read the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. If you haven't read it yet, you should. If you have already read it, give it another shot, I'm sure that you, like me, will enjoy going around again.
