Jude Fisher's Lord of the Rings Visual Companion is a real treat for Tolkien fans and brings readers up close to some of the amazing detail they will find in the big-screen version of this fantasy classic. Not just a straightforward movie guide, this is more of a Middle Earth encyclopaedia with information on the people and places that cinema-goers will be introduced. The text is informative and never presumes any level of knowledge, making this book more than accessible for Tolkien fans or those who have yet to discover his work. The pictures are full colour and quite simply superb, showcasing the movies epic scope and immense special effects. There is even a fold-out map of Middle Earth in the centre pages using shots from the movie to illustrate key locations, giving it a more realistic feel. Not an average movie tie-in book, Fisher's wonderful guide has been as lovingly put together as the movie itself and has "quality" stamped all over it. This is definitely one to add to your collection. --Jonathan Weir

The text is thorough and informative - a lot more accessible than Robert Foster's Guide to Middle-earth, though serving the same sort of purpose. A useful starting point for non-buffs, but a must-have for those of us who do know our way round the books, too. There are some interesting hints in the Visual Companion, since it's based on the movie and the scripts rather than the book, of where the divergences between the two occur.Read more ›
Amazing source of information for all enthusiasts of the film.
