3.0 out of 5 stars Great Writing, Average Quality Edition, 22 Feb 2012
This review is from: The Hobbit & The Lord of the Rings Boxed Set (Paperback)
I bought this box set but always felt I wanted the illustrated set, so I bought that as well!

This set is printed on yellowy paper with very small print (too small in my opinion).

The illustrated set has better quality paper (whiter) and more pages (bigger print).

My advice is buy the illustrated set and pay the extra 10 quid. Well worth it. The images and better paper / type are definitely worth it.

By the way, I really enjoyed the Hobbit. The quickest I've read a book in years. Now on to the rest.

This reviewer says this edition is small type and not illustrated. Others say it is. I'm confused. Which s the best bookset to buy?

Amazon have combined two different products review sections. Look at the top of the review where it says "This review is from...". The larger font one is the one with pictures from the films on the covers and this review is for the one with the yellow box.
