Continuing the story begun in The Hobbit, this is the first part of Tolkien’s epic masterpiece, The Lord of the Rings, featuring the definitive text and a detailed map of Middle-earth.

Sauron, the Dark Lord, has gathered to him all the Rings of Power – the means by which he intends to rule Middle-earth. All he lacks in his plans for dominion is the One Ring – the ring that rules them all – which has fallen into the hands of the hobbit, Bilbo Baggins.

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.

J.R.R. Tolkien’s great work of imaginative fiction has been labelled both a heroic romance and a classic fantasy fiction. By turns comic and homely, epic and diabolic, the narrative moves through countless changes of scene and character in an imaginary world which is totally convincing in its detail.

The best edition to-date of the Lord of the Rings

 on 1 May 2018
By JGG
This review is about this specific edition, not Tolkien’s work (which hardly needs more reviews anyway).

The Hobbit: Facsimile First Edition

 on 15 November 2016
By Bob C
This has been a long-delayed product, but I found it to be worth the wait. I was pleasantly surprised by how nice the slipcase was and it arrived here in the U.S. undamaged, which is not always the case. I had to order this from AmazonUK because AmazonUS cancelled the product, several times. And I wasn’t going to wait for them to actually get it in stock. Because frequently many of the Tolkien offerings from AmazonUK never end up here in the U.S. To me, it’s well worth international shipping.

CONSIDER THE BOOK A FAMILY HEIRLOOM

 on 1 November 2014
By Helpless
This book is expensive, a paperback would be a fraction of the price, but it is worth every penny. I had just finished reading the Hobbit to my 9 year old and thought The Lord of the Rings would be a great follow on from that.

A terrific edition of a terrific book

***As Amazon often sticks reviews of one edition on the product page of another I should clarify at the top that I am reviewing the Alan Lee illustrated paperback – 

Great Quality, Good Price

 on 7 December 2017
By Abdul Butt
This book is great quality for the price. Buy this if you would like to read the Lord of the Rings but do not have a particular large budget. Came in perfect condition, with no complaints. This is perfect for those who would like to further indulge in the Tolkien series beyond the movies. As someone who had only seen the movies, the book opened me up to new things which were left out in the movie so it is certainly a book to read for those Lord of the Rings fans. One thing is that the pages are quite thin so they can be torn if not dealt with care, however I have not torn my copy of this book.

The Lord Of The Rings Special Edition Review

 on 1 September 2015
By Zedman
Beware if you are buying this 2004 hardcover edition, having read the product description and expecting it to be a 3 volume boxset.

Excellence on Excellence

 on 21 January 2015
By I. A. Wright
I’ve been a follower of Tolkein for more decades than I care to remember. He took more care when writing his tales, reading forward and backward, to remove all kinks. His in-depth knowledge of Old English and Old Norse legends provided the basis of his stories, to wonderful effect.

The Fellowship of the Ring: 50th Anniversary Edition [Hardcover]

 on 12 July 2013
By Nat Whilk
An unfortunate consequence of the success of The Lord of the Rings has been that frequent resetting has engendered errors by the hundred. In some copies, the ring verse has lost its last line; in others, The Council of Elrond its last two sentences. The chief virtue of this 50th Anniversary Edition of The Fellowship of the Ring (ISBN 9780007203543) is that its text, prepared by some of the most eminent Tolkienologists on Arda, is undoubtedly the most accurate ever published.

Awesome.

 on 24 November 2017
By MrMackerel
What can I say, which hasn’t already been said. A classic. A touch gutted that my nine year book devouring daughter thinks it’s old fashioned, weird and boring – but I’m sure she’ll eventually love it after I’ve forced her to sit through a reading for the twentieth time. That or she’ll just learn to say that she loves it in order to convince me to stop.

One book to rule them all (possibly).
