A beautiful edition of a timeless classic,
This review is from: The Lord of the Rings - 3 book boxset (hardbacks) (Hardcover)
I will not waste words here raving about the Lord of the Rings. Most people already know that it is one of the greatest stories ever told and has been reviewed more eloquently elsewhere.
If you are a fan of Tolkien then this box set is a wonderful collectors item. It is presented in sturdy hardback to survive multiple readings over the years. It also has some of Alan Lee's wonderful illustrations, which clearly demonstrate the influence they had over the visualisation of Peter Jackson's movies. Some of these pictures look like they might have been taken straight out of the movies.
All in all, as a fan whose previous paperback editions have fallen apart, look forward to enjoying these hardbacks for years to come.
