Top customer reviews
I have never read the lord of the Rings before but I have watched the movies and played the games and I loved them. However I was always confused at what was going on at times but after reading the books everything makes so much sense now. I honestly liked the books more than the movies and although they are similar the books have way more content and details in them. So if you loved the movies I would 100% suggest getting the books.
Speaking of the books I got the paperback version and they are beautiful. Although they are simple and the covers are one plain color per book it still has that sense of style and simplicity. They covers and case are thick and well made. Although their were points in the books where the words were slightly faded I still has no problem reading them.
I’m not even going to talk about the story since just trust me when I say its one of the best series ever. I have never read or even considered reading a series twice but I honestly think that I might read this one a second time that’s how much I liked it.
So if you liked the movies and aren’t sure about reading the books I would say go for it and get them since you wont be disappointed. If you never watched the movies then get both them and the books:)
Review for The Lord of the Rings.
I’ll keep it brief, this is not a review of the actual story but of this specific edition. I have attached many pictures that I hope help you decide if this is an edition you want to buy.
– The font is big and easy to read.
– 65 beautiful illustrations by Alan Lee that bring the story to life.
– Slipcover is an opaque plastic, whit a modern look that I think doesn’t complement the book.
– One or two blank pages before and/or after each illustration.
Overall I think this is a great edition and it’s worth buying.
