'The second part of Tolkien’s epic masterpiece, The Lord of the Rings, featuring an exclusive cover image from the film.'
Impossible to describe in a few words, JRR 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. Tolkien created a vast new mythology in an invented world which has proved timeless in its appeal.
To celebrate the release of the major motion picture trilogy, we will be reissuing the A-format paperbacks with exclusive images from the films on the covers, the first of which being The Fellowship of the Ring, in which the young hobbit, Frodo, is bequeathed a magical ring from his Uncle Bilbo, and learns that he must take it into the land of the Dark Lord, Sauron, and cast it into the Cracks of Doom.
This is a great way to continue the story. I love how the book is spilt into two major journeys and how some of the smaller characters (not all hobbits ha) are put more forward. Read morePublished 1 day ago by Steven Myers

No words to describe Tolkiens books. Read them at school, during my teenage years and now have the set on Kindle to take all the book wherever I want without filling my suitcasePublished 16 days ago by We Big Man

What can be said, the book has some great advantages to the film, but I truly believe they are worth both taking in as they compliment each other....Published 26 days ago by hayden dackombe
