Review of the EDITION not the story, 7 Aug 2011
This review is for the edition itself and not of the actual story. The story is amazing plain and simple. But this is the best edition i have ever owned. The cover is sturdy and soft, the pages are the perfect thickness and has the perfect creamy color and feel. The maps are perfect. The binding is sturdy and will hold up to many many many readings throughout my lifetime and that of my future kids. The dust jackets are also very nice, i like how they are the original designs by tolkien himself. Buy all three parts in this edition! That's what I did and i'm 100 percent satisfied.
