Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The first volume in J.R.R. Tolkien's epic adventure The Lord of the Rings.

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, it remained lost to him. After many ages it fell into the hands of Bilbo Baggins, as told in The Hobbit.

In a sleepy village in the Shire, young Frodo Baggins finds himself faced with an immense task, as his elderly cousin Bilbo entrusts the Ring to his care. Frodo must leave his home and make a perilous journey across Middle-earth to the Cracks of Doom, there to destroy the Ring and foil the Dark Lord in his evil purpose.

Review:

"A unique, wholly realized other world, evoked from deep in the well of Time, massively detailed, absorbingly entertaining..." The New York Times

Synopsis:

Frodo Baggins, bearer of the Ring of Power that would enable the evil Sauron to destroy all that is good in Middle-earth, takes on the task of carrying the Ring to Mount Doom to oversee its destruction. A new cover features artwork from the upcoming film adaptation of "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, " starring Elijah Wood, Sir Ian McKellen, Cate Blanchett, and Liv Tyler, scheduled for release in December.

Synopsis:

THE GREATEST FANTASY EPIC OF OUR TIME

The dark, fearsome Ringwraiths were searching for a hobbit. Frodo Baggins knew they were seeking him and the Ring he bore — the Ring of Power that would enable evil Sauron to destroy all that was good in Middle-earth. Now it is up to Frodo and his faithful servant, Sam, with a small band of companions, to carry the Ring to the one place it could be destroyed — Mount Doom, in the very center of Sauron's dark kingdom.

THUS BEGINS J.R.R. TOLKIEN'S CLASSIC THE LORD OF THE RINGS, WHICH CONTINUES IN THE TWO TOWERS AND THE RETURN OF THE KING.
