All three parts of the epic masterpiece 'The Lord of the Rings' in one paperback. Features brand new packaging, the definitive edition of the text, fold-out flaps with the original two-colour maps, and a revised and expanded index. Sauron, the Dark Lord, has gathered to him all the Rings of Power -- the means by which he intends to rule Middle-earth. All he lacks in his plans for dominion is the One Ring -- the ring that rules them all -- which has fallen into the hands of the hobbit, Bilbo Baggins. In a sleepy village in the Shire, young Frodo Baggins finds himself faced with an immense task, as the Ring is entrusted to his care. He must leave his home and make a perilous journey across the realms of Middle-earth to the Crack of Doom, deep inside the territories of the Dark Lord. There he must destroy the Ring forever and foil the Dark Lord in his evil purpose. Since it was first published in 1954, 'The Lord of the Rings' has been a book people have treasured. Steeped in unrivalled magic and otherworldliness, its sweeping fantasy has touched the hearts of young and old alike. Now, to coincide with the publication of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Children of Hurin, the definitive 50th Anniversary text, fully restored with almost 400 corrections -- with the full co-operation of Christopher Tolkien -- is reissued with a striking new cover.

Lord of the rings is an excellent book, with a beautifully constructed storyline. It is filled with interesting characters and dives into a world of beasts and other mythological beings like elves and hobbits. All culminating into an adventure filled with hardships, friends, foes, and whatever your imagination can stretch to. Wonderful fantasy, highly recommend.

The lord of the rings

Tolkien created an incredible and imaginative world with one of the best trilogies I have ever read. The struggle between good and evil inside some characters gives this book such deep characters. This series never gets old or uninteresting no matter the age of the reader.

Lord of The Rings

A true masterpiece! This is a fantasy novel is written by JRR Tolkien and is the sequel to the Hobbit series. it is action packed and has an exceptional story line where Tolkien creates his own world and languages. The imagery in this book makes you feel as if you have travelled to the world itself. I definitely recommend this book if you enjoy adventure.
