A Pretty Good Read
15 December 2013 - Published on Amazon.com
This is a book for those who've had extensive experience with both the movies, predominately The Fellowship of the Ring, and the Lord of the Rings book trilogy. Other readers will be lost. The analysis is very good although highly literary and somewhat opaque at times. The casual reader may find the essays contained here a bit hard to get through. The book is somewhat deceptive, however, in that it really discusses storytelling difficulties and differences between the literary medium (books) and media (films). Picturing Tolkien is very good, however, in that one can read around -- that is, read out of order or at whim. The essays are relatively short and, for the reader with contextual knowledge of the source material, informative. Although not a book for newcomers to the Lord of the Rings franchise, all in all it is a pretty good read.
