   Kindle should clean it up
I've loved this book set since I first read it in 1966. My eyesight is so poor that I need the Kindle version so I can enlarge the picture. The problem is that I hate words that are highlighted, and this comes highlighted with no way to turn it off! After being on the phone with Amazon for a while, I had to give up. They need someone to edit all the highlighting. If you click on the highlighted words, they give the wrong definition of "keyword."
   Best fantasy story ever
To review this book is very easy, you wont read an entire story if you haven't read LOTR, it is so well written you almost feel the story is based on real stuff, i understand why, but it just showes a story is best read not seen, if you haven't read LOTR.
   One of a very few I reread, as I have done many times.
For over two decades, the world's literary world waited for Tolkien's epic tale to be completed. The Lord of the Rings, the Hobbit, the elves, wizards and anyone could ever want, as well as their many foes. Indeed, no Hollywood movie, television or music studio can compete with the fullness of the author's own hand. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Apprentice are back in Time for another spellbinding adventure.
   Review for 50th Anniversary edition (2021 listing on Amazon)
Very good edition with most up to date revisions to the text and an interesting forward. NO ILLUSTRATIONS like some reviews mention, as those must've been for a previous edition that Amazon sold under the same url. There are still some appendices and maps in the back of the book. The book looks good on the back cover with the author's initials in script on the spine. Even with the introduction, I would recommend that you try and get a book signed by the artist.
   Wonderful book, vinyl cover has problems.
Note the rating is for the vinyl cover version, not the book itself. Lord of the Rings fans, I'm a huge Tolkien fan. The book is now being sold with the help of Amazon. com. The cover was torn away from the printer, and I ordered a new one. It was returned for a replacement, and the new one had the same issue—cover had torn away from the binding. Yes, I'm returning the replacement. I don't know whether I was just unlucky, but I'm going to look for a better edition.
   Good Quality Book Set
This set of books is very well written, and I recommend it to anyone. The slipcase is sturdy, the paper for the pages is good, and the price is reasonable. The book cover is also adorned with Saurons' Eye, the infamously red and gold logo. What I missed the most was that there were no illustrations inside the books. Since Alan Lee had done the illustrations for the book dust jackets and slipcase, I assumed there would be illustrations inside. But, you can just tell, by touching and holding these books that they are exceptional quality and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.
   Well made - most current (updated) text
My softcover trilogy was from the 60s and has literally worn out - pages are dropping and the covers are breaking apart. My other set of books I bought at the clearance, when I finally read it after a few months, I discovered that the Fellowship of the Ring had a misprint and repeated about a 100 pages. This set does have that problem - it has the most updated and complete text and bibliography that is available, it has all the necessary corrections, and it has the most updated and complete bibliographies that are available. The only nit I could throw at this is the font, because this is a photocopy version, there are occasional blurs in the text. If you need a new set of wheels, or if you want the latest version of the text, this is a very good choice. Shipping was fast, too.
   Absolute Masterpiece
I'm delighted that Mr. Hughes has chosen to pen a sequel, one of the finest works of English literature. The book deals with an epic struggle between good and evil, between the rich and the poor, between the good and the evil. With great adventures, struggles, successes and failures, simplicity and depth of emotion, Tolkien perfectly illustrates the verse in the Gospel of John, chapter 1, that reads: “the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”
   Timothy Leary could have used enough mind altering drugs to write this.
I have a tee shirt that says I love in my own little world, but that's okay because they know me here. I cannot imagine what a world J.R.R. would have created. Lord of the Rings writer JRR Tolkien lived in the English city of Birmingham. He invented several different types of humanoids. He created slimey leeches that had human-type goals and desires, Raymond said. There were lands and towns that reflected the side of cast characters, and tying them all together was a desire to own a magical ring that had the owner the power to dominate all of the disparate groups that came from somewhere deep in Tolkien's imagination. But the strangest phenomenon of all is the fact that the reader actually buys into it all lock, stock, and barrel, all 1196 pages.
