5.0 out of 5 stars A MAGICAL TALE OF EPIC PROPORTIONS, 11 Dec. 2001
I FIRST READ THE TRILOGY SOME 10 YEARS AGO, AND WAS UTTERLY SPELLBOUND,ALTHOUGH STEEPED IN THE TRADITION OF FANTASY, IT IS AT TIMES, HARD TO BELIEVE THAT THIS COULD NOT BE TRUE.AN EPIC TALE OF GOOD AND EVIL.THERE IS AN INTRINSIC INTERPOLATION BETWEEN DARK AND LIGHT,WHICH IS A FEATURE OF TOLKIEN'S WORK.IT IS A BOOK WHICH WILL STAND THE TEST OF TIME, AND, DOUBTLESS, BE READ BY COUNTLESS GENERATIONS TO COME TOLKIEN IS UNDOUBTEDLY THE FINEST WRITER OF THIS PARTICULAR GENRE.WHAT A PITY THERE IS NO ONE TO TAKE OVER HIS CROWN.
