Lord of the Rings (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.817

The Lord Of The Rings (Set Of 3 Titles) is a collection of all the three books in J.R.R. Tolkien’s epic trilogy about Sauron, a Dark Lord, and his quest of a magical, all-powerful ring.


Summary Of the Book

The Lord Of The Rings (Set Of 3 Titles) is a set of the three titles in Tolkien’s bestselling high fantasy series. The novel is divided into a total of three volumes, spanning six books, two per volume.


The novel is set in a fictional universe called middle-earth. A Dark Lord named Sauron harbors the ambition to conquer and reign over all of middle-earth. He creates a powerful ring called the One Ring to control the Rings Of Power, several magical rings created under Sauron’s guidance. Sauron is the main antagonist in the novel, and the titular character of the series as well.


In The Hobbit, the prequel to The Lord Of The Rings, the One Ring leaves Sauron’s hand. The Lord Of The Rings covers Sauron’s quest to reclaim the One Ring coupled with the continued efforts of the West to foil his ambitious plans.


The first volume is titled The Fellowship Of The Ring. It begins at Bag End with the birthday celebrations of the hobbit Bilbo Baggins. Bilbo leaves all his possessions to Frodo, his adopted heir. Frodo eventually learns that the ring he received as part of his legacy is actually the powerful One ring belonging to Sauron. On the advice of a wizard named Gandalf, Frodo sets out on a mission to ensure the safety of the ring. Several hobbits, dwarves, wizards, and elves join hands to keep the ring from falling into Sauron’s hands.


The second volume, The Two Towers, focuses on the betrayal of a wizard named Saruman, who switches to the Dark side and pledges his allegiance to Sauron. Subsequently, Frodo travels east with the ring, and unwittingly walks into danger.


In the third and final volume, The Return Of The King, the journey of the ring culminates in a decisive showdown that could result in the victory of good over evil, or it could backfire and the dark forces could end up conquering all. This volume contains many appendices that provide a wealth of background information on the story.


The Lord Of The Rings was first released in 1954. With sales of over 150 million copies, it is the third best-selling novel ever. It has been translated into numerous languages and has also been reprinted several times over. Its film, theater, and radio adaptations have won numerous awards. The book continues to form the basis of a variety of ancillary products in the form of video games, artwork, music, and more.


About J.R.R. Tolkien

J.R.R. Tolkien was an English author, professor, philologist, and poet.


He is best known for his epic fantasy works The Hobbit, The Lord Of The Rings, and The Silmarillion. Some of his other works include The Lonely Isle, The Sorrowful City, Farmer Giles Of Ham, Leaf by Niggle, and Smith Of Wootton Major.


His writing was greatly influenced by Old English literature, poetry, mythology, and Catholic theology. With the revival of his works, he is now posthumously considered the Father of the high fantasy genre.


Tolkien was born John Ronald Reuel Tolkien on January 3, 1982, in Bloemfontein, South Africa. He was married to Edith Bratt, and the couple had four children. Tolkien passed away on September 2, 1973. In 2008, he appeared at the sixth spot on The Times list of The 50 Greatest British Writers since 1945. In 2009, he was listed as the fifth top-earning dead celebrity by Forbes.

On the phyiscal quality and condition of the book-

Pros-
1. Good font size and type. Doesnt strain the eyes of the reader.
2. Page nos begin in book 1 and end in book 3, i.e continuity is maintained.
3. Maps are present in all 3 books for the ready reference of the reader.

Cons-
1. Maps size is a bit small and the reader may have to strain his eyes looking for smaller details.

Nonetheless a steal at the price at which it is being sold by flipkart!!

b.)The Book Quality Is Very Good And I Particularly The Cover Art Which Is Quite Elegant And Nice .
c.)The Letters In Book Are Of Adequate Size And Does Not Strain Your Eyes But People Who Have Eye Problems Might Have To Wear Glasses.
d.)The Size Of The Maps Is Unfortunately Quite Small.. And I Don't Think Even Glasses Might Help You Read The Map Despite The Maps Being Quite Detailed.
e.)Paper Quality Is What I Would Call Decent.
f.)A Problem I Have With The Books Is That The Size Of The Books Is Quite Small As Compared To The Thickness Which Makes It A Problem While Reading, The Size Of Book Could Have Been A Little Bigger

Delivery - a.)I Ordered The Book On A Friday And Assuming The Sunday Holiday In Between I Got The Book On Monday, Which I Think Is Fast.
b.)The Packaging Was Good, No Complains About That.
c.)I Purchased The Books When The Price Of The Product Was 819Rs Which At Time Of This Review Writing Has Become Even Cheaper, So All in All I Think It Is Worth Its Money And Are A First Time Reader Of The LOTR Series.
Hope U Found This Review Helpful ....

Good that the Price is back.

I just ordered the books after seeing the price as I was saving for long and seeing the price hike during Diwali was disappointing. A recent read of 'The Hobbit' is what encouraged ignited my interest in Middle Earth despite my busy schedule of late. Also, HarperCollins is releasing a new boxed set edition which includes 'The Hobbit' by December. Interested buyers should check that out as well.

My Personal View

Assuming that i have not heard how great and amazing this book is , i would still say that this book is great.To be honest i find it even more nice after watching the movies, but oviously thats now how a book should be read.If u like harry potter u will like this ( on the basis of imagination.)However these 3 books are better written than harry potter.

IF IMAGINATION IS YOUR CUP OF TEA , YOU WILL BUY THIS!!!

Epic Masterpiece.

I don't need to tell you that LOTR is amazing, awesome, takes you to another world of fantasy etc. You know it. What i can say is this edition of LOTR with ISBN-13 code - 9780261102385, is the best with original cover and map designs from Tolkien. You can say that it's a special edition in a way. With the price range from 500-1200 this is the best offer you'll get, cause the cheaper ones may be concise editions. You can always search the ISBN-10 or ISBN-13 code in google to get more bibliographical data like no. of pages, dimensions, reviews from popular/reputed magazines and daily (times,... ()

Great books, not so great box

The Lord of the Rings is one of the most epic series ever written. If you are interested in fantasy genre, these books are a must.
Regarding the product itself, the paper quality is decent. The only disappointing feature was the box. Its made of thin cardboard and paper and doesn't looks like it...

Money well spent.

Wonderful set of the LoTR Trilogy. Amazing cover, great quality of pages and great cover designs. This is a must buy for fans of the fantasy genre.

And it is a classic. I don't need to say much about it. A bit cumbersome at times, it is worth it.
