The making of a masterpiece,
This review is from: The Lord of the Rings: The Making of the Movie Trilogy (Hardcover)
This book is for those people who, like myself, have watched the whole of the appendices section of the Extended 'Fellowship of the Ring' DVD, and want to know more about the making of The Lord of the Rings. It's full of fascinating and often hilarious accounts by people who were (and still are) involved in the films, from the Director, the cast, the designers and producers, through to the people who make the amazing wigs! The book is written in a very easy to read and informal way, which makes it quite unusual but a pleasure to read. One of the best bits is the interview between the author and actors Billy Boyd and Dominic Monaghan, which is very funny. The illustrations and photographs are wonderful, and the foreword by Sir Ian McKellen adds a really nice touch.
This is a must-have for all LOTR fans.
