a definite must to tolkien fans, 4 Sep 2002
This book is an excellent guide to fans and would-be fans of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. It gives the reader an insiders tour and behind the scenes details in making of this epic masterpiece. The journey from the book to movie is an incredilbe one.
Peter Jackson is a real Tolkien Fan. He gave his best effort to make the dream of fellow Tolkien fans come true, seeing their beloved books transformed into an epic film. In reading this book, you could see how perfectly the actors where cast in their respective characters. It also featured the views of the actors regarding the characters that they played and of the movie itself. You would come to appreciate the tremendous efforts made by the production staff in making middle earth come alive before our very eyes. The pictures of sets, casts, and locations, are fantastic. It's a definite must for all Tolkien Fans' collection.
