5.0 out of 5 stars David Bratman 1 Feb 2010
Format:Paperback
It's a shame this book is out of print because it contains a scintillating demolition of
Peter Jackson's "film of the video game, not of the book" (my description) by David Bratman.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant and balanced 15 Aug 2006
By J. Bongiorno - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This highly recommended title explores Tolkien's Lord of the Rings vs. Peter Jackson's film adaptation of it. The several essays chosen by the editors are all very convincing and well-researched. They're also immensely enjoyable to read for those who've read Tolkien and seen the film (or vice versa) and love to compare the two. The editors were also careful in presenting a balanced view, for both pros and cons are represented (sometimes even within the same essay.) And there are even some essays on Tolkienian fan-fiction (and slash) that's proliferated on the net. Truly an engrossing study of Tolkien's work and Jackson's successes and failures in adapting it! I hope a second volume is being considered...

5.0 out of 5 stars The best book on the book/film contrasts 6 Aug 2007
By John S. Lawrence - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found this book enormously helpful in figuring out what I had seen and how the material had been adapted for the screen. The authors of this book have a deep knowledge of the Tolkien texts and they have also viewed the films and DVDs very carefully. The assessments are balanced, well informed, and not likely to be surpassed as a commentary on the transformation.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good overview of the negatives, and positives, of Jackson's Tolkien trilogy 22 Aug 2011
By Coffeechick - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Fans of both the books and the films will enjoy these essays--the problems of depicting some of Tolkien's saga; the good and bad choices made as to how to tell the overall story; the baffling changes Jackson made. Those familiar with both books and movies will enjoy reading these well-argued essays, and those only familiar with the movies (quite a lot of people, these days) will perhaps appreciate how Tolkien constructed an entire world that's worth looking into via the novels. The movie fans will realize that there may be quite a lot they're missing by sticking with the movies alone...
5.0 out of 5 stars A fun book for fans of LotR 18 May 2011
By Loves to Knit - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I had fun with this, re-enjoying the trilogy of books and movies. The essays gave me new peerspectives to think about, and as a bonus I now have new sources of fan-fiction so I can revisit Middle Earth whenever I need to read a new story- or reread an old one.

Great book for anyone who loves The Lord of the Rings and wants to see the differences from how the novel translated to the big screen.
