The book starts with a reminder of what happened in the first film, and then shows some of what awaits the Fellowship as they travel their separate ways. It gives good detail without giving away the plot of the film and so can be read before you see the film, or as a reminder of some of the 'good bits' after you have seen the film. The still from the film of the seige at Helm's Deep at the end of the book is extremely stunning. The page then opens out to show an illustration of the battle-plan, helping to visualise what happens when, where and by whom.
I found it a very good guide; with reference to the original Tolkein text as well as quotes from the film. Fans of the film will love it.
The most striking part of this companion is the photographs especially two of them. The first is of the Ent; it is so much fuller than you remember from the movie and could almost be a portrait over your fireplace. Looking at the Ent’s translucent eyes and plant like whiskers you would think this is what “The Green Man” should look like. The second striking picture is the two page conflict between Gandalf and the Balrog (read, orange and yellow with a black background.) To add to these pictures is a full 4 page fold out of the highlights of Middle-Earth.
