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.

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!!

Bliss for all the Tolkien's fan

My friend Anurag told me the other night that all the three books of Our all time fav. Literature are coming in an unbelievable price.
After watching The Hobbit with 48fps i again wanted to visit the middle earth with my friend Frodo and with my wizard friend, Gandalf the Grey/White.
Being a hardcore reader and being a Fan of the middle earth, the wait and patience was not in my limit. Searched it and found it. Ordered it and got t within 48hrs. Just 48hrs and the Lords of the Ring series was at my door step.
So again, the adventure of the middle earth begins with Frodo, here and back again.

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 ....

It takes you into another world !!!

I used to hate LOTR series of movies (yes....I haven't seen the movies yet). I had never seen them coz it looked like a strain to go through all that complex scenery & characters they had built. One day I was fidgeting with my remote & got myself watching 'The Hobbit (part 1)'. I caught that movie midway where Bilbo was riddling with Gollum. I was glued. It was not English yet English (you know how gollum speaks). I was fascinated & for the first time I found myself interested in J.R.R. Tolkien & his works.

It was not English yet English (you know how gollum speaks). I was fascinated & for the first time I found myself interested in J.R.R. Tolkien & his works.

I ordered 'The Hobbit' from Flipkart. You can read my review. It was a darn simple book. Character development is simple & the book moved at amazing pace. Later I came to know that Tolkien wrote it for his grandchildren. Hobbit was written in late thirties. I was amazed coz it was such a mix of humor, thrill & fiction.

After realizing that I can actually read, understand & enjoy Tolkien...I ordered the Epic...yep....this red colored...size 7 font...1200 page epic. Book is damn heavy...but the good part is you get all the three books in one & save some money. I will seriously recommend you to order the 3 part series if you can spare some 300 or so extra bucks. (I haven't seen that set but I am assuming that fonts will be bigger & there will be much more spacing between lines)...that will make your reading experience better (& chances are that you won't quit the book in first 300 or so pages).

Coming to the content, 'LOTR' is a completely different book than 'The Hobbit'. Tolkien published this book nearly 20 years after hobbit. Whereas 'Hobbit' was a pacy, easygoing, light thriller...LOTR is an intense, extremely detailed, intricate saga of Good vs. Evil. I'd also recommend a reader to read 'The Hobbit' first...it will be far easier to relate as what's going on in first 100 or so pages.

Please don't quit the book in first 200-300 pages as it tend to get a bit boring & complex. Tolkien has created a whole new world & you need to settle down in that world to enjoy it. It will definitely take some time settling down. But once you cross that stage...its one in the century kind of book. His imagination is incredible...just incredible.

Guess what... 73 % off!

I got this book for Rs. 297 (73% off MRP). In local stores they were selling this at MRP or at max only 20% off. @Flipkart: Your book deals are awesome!
??? Regarding this book, I would say that it is much much better than its price. Even if it is paperback, the cover is not as thin, but lies somewhere between paperback & hardcover.
??? Many ppl have complained about the small maps & fonts in this book. I think the maps are ok, but the font size could have been larger. But that is unavoidable if you want all the three parts in one book (for the sake of simplicity and less cost).

Best epic fantasy!

I haven't seen the films yet (because I wanted to read it first). And finally, after reading it, I'm left complete spellbound by Tolkien's imagination power. There's no match of Tolkien in epic fantasy. And I've seen many people debating about which is better, Harry Potter or LOTR. Both are great... (View complete review)

Out of the World!

Firstly, I have known this book since before Flipkart was born (I bought more than a decade ago).
Secondly, in my opinion, this is single greatest work of mythic literature produced by mankind - second only to the Mahabharata itself.

It entails the story of a legendary Dark Lord who created Ring...
