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.
Beautiful. just beautiful. Tolkien really knows how to write a book.
The end will always haunt you as being very SAD and DEPRESSING
I NEVER cry in books but this is an exception.
It wasn't just the book that was sad, but the prospect of finishing the series.
If you love this series I recommend that you go on to read the history books and Narn I chin Hurin.
