This review is from: The Fellowship of the Ring: Fellowship of the Ring Vol 1 (The Lord of the Rings) (Paperback)
Obviously with the hype of the movies slowing, it's time to really appreciate these books again. I was given the whole trilogy of books a couple of months before the first movie came out, but I didn't start reading them until after the second movie was out on DVD. I now realise what a fool I was.
The books are simply brilliant. I don't think anyone with a slight hint of intelligence could speak badly about Tolkien's work. His books have never ceased to amaze audiences around the world, and they may or may not be more popular after the movies than what they have ever been. I'm now re-reading the trilogy for the forth time now, and I can barely put it down. If you have seen the movies and have not yet read the books, I stronlgy reccommend you do. It tells alot more of the story, and many many pages were left out of the movie. Nothing against Peter Jackson, of course. I worship his movies, but nothing will ever match this amazing work by Tolkien.

It is not a trilogy....a trilogy would be 3 books with DIFFERENT stories using the same situation or characters. It is SIX books, published in THREE volumes, making up ONE story.
