This book is an excellent guide to fans and would-be fans of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. It gives the reader an insiders tour and behind the scenes details in making of this epic masterpiece. The journey from the book to movie is an incredilbe one.
Peter Jackson is a real Tolkien Fan. He gave his best effort to make the dream of fellow Tolkien fans come true, seeing their beloved books transformed into an epic film. In reading this book, you could see how perfectly the actors where cast in their respective characters. It also featured the views of the actors regarding the characters that they played and of the movie itself. You would come to appreciate the tremendous efforts made by the production staff in making middle earth come alive before our very eyes. The pictures of sets, casts, and locations, are fantastic. It's a definite must for all Tolkien Fans' collection.

Amazing photos! a real feast to look at... and some great infomation too. If this book is anything to go by the film should be fantastic. From what I can see Peter Jackson has caught the essence of what Tolkein was all about... buy it now.

This book is simply wonderful, telling you the ins and outs and making one of the most anticipated films ever! Everything, from hobbit feet and miniatures of Rivendell are mentioned, and whether you're an Orlando or an Elijah fan, there's plenty of pictures of them to keep you happy!...

This book is a nice teaser for the upcoming blockbuster "Fellowship of the ring", but to call it a movie guide... that I find somewhat too much to say.
Sure, there a are some great photographs and interesting looks behind the scenes, but the stories about the people behind the movie remain rather superficial. For example, only the main characters are quoted, but their date of birth, for example, isn't even included. And of the hundreds of people behind the scenes, only four or five are really brought into the spotlight.
I suspect that there will be a much more comprehensive movie guide when all three films of the trilogy have been released, say in the spring of 2004.

This book gives you a clear view on how the cast coped with the pressure of the three films that were for the first time in film history filmed back to back. It also tells you about the actors who played each of the characters for example Elijah Wood who plays Frodo Baggins an adventurous hobbit. This book also talks about how the sets and the costumes were made. Overall this book is definatly a top read if you love the film.

It's ok, it could've had more pictures of the main characters, I would still buy as a Lord of the rings fan.
