Delivered By

?
  • Usually Delivered in 2-3 business days.

What is the estimated delivery time?

Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.
Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:
  • The Seller offering the product
  • Product's availability with the Seller
  • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

What do the different tags like "In Stock", "Available" mean?

'In Stock'

For items listed as "In Stock", Sellers will mention the delivery time based on your location pincode (usually 2-3 business days, 4-5 business days or 4-6 business days in areas where standard courier service is available).

Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

You have probably noticed varying estimated delivery times for Sellers of the product you are interested in. Delivery times are influenced by product availability, geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination and the courier partner's time-to-deliver to your location.

Please enter your default pin code on the product page (you don't have to enter it every single time) to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

Enter your pincode on the product page (you don't have to enter it every single time) to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

  • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
  • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
  • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

The Lord Of The Rings (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 629

One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In ancient times the Rings of Power were crafted by the Elven-smiths, and Sauron, the Dark Lord, forged the One Ring, filling it with his own power so that he could rule all others. But the One Ring was taken from him, and though he sought it throughout Middle-earth, it remained lost to him. After many ages it fell by chance into the hands of the hobbit Bilbo Baggins.
From Sauron's fastness in the Dark Tower of Mordor, his power spread far and wide. Sauron gathered all the Great Rings to him, but always he searched for the One Ring that would complete his dominion.
When Bilbo reached his eleventy-first birthday he disappeared, bequeathing to his young cousin Frodo the Ruling Ring and a perilous quest: to journey across Middle-earth, deep into the shadow of the Dark Lord, and destroy the Ring by casting it into the Cracks of Doom.
The Lord of the Rings tells of the great quest undertaken by Frodo and the Fellowship of the Ring: Gandalf the Wizard; the hobbits Merry, Pippin, and Sam; Gimli the Dwarf; Legolas the Elf; Boromir of Gondor; and a tall, mysterious stranger called Strider.
This new edition includes the fiftieth-anniversary fully corrected text setting and, for the first time, an extensive new index.
J.R.R. Tolkien (1892-1973), beloved throughout the world as the creator of The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and The Silmarillion, was a professor of Anglo-Saxon at Oxford, a fellow of Pembroke College, and a fellow of Merton College until his retirement in 1959. His chief interest was the linguistic aspects of the early English written tradition, but while he studied classic works of the past, he was creating a set of his own.

a near-flawless copy

it took around 15 days for this book to get delivered.. But it was worth the wait.

I read this book once when i was 13 and am giddy with excitement to delve into this world again.

As mentioned in my title. There was a slight crease on the book binding bordering on a tear.

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. B… (View complete review)

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

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.

I ordered 'The Hobbit' from Flipkart. You can read my review. It was a darn sim

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).

All Your Doubts Cleared

This is the second best-selling book in the world!! Now , the book is definitely worth a read but I won't comment on that as you can find a lot of resources on that.
Many think that reading the Hobbit first is necessary , well , at the starting of this book , for the readers who haven't read the Hobbit , there is `10-11 page description of what happens in The Hobbit by JRR Tolkein himself! So , no need to read The Hobbit.
The Binding is pretty good , the current price(400 rs.) is astonishing so just go for it. Maps a re pretty awesome.

So , dont wrry , genuine product , just go f

One Tale to Rule them all!

This is probably the first fantasy book written. And it remains the best. There are light moments, and at the same time action, adventure and darkness. JRR Tolkien's masterpiece will take you to a world beyond this one.

Go ahead and buy it

I confess with deep embarrassment that I have not had the pleasure of reading Lord of the rings to date. So,I ordered the book on flipkart. Although, I was expecting big volumes with yellowish pages but what I got was the reverse of it. It is one whole book with wonderful page quality @ an amazing price. Although the book looks a little compressed , the text spacing is minimal but the wonderful front page cover makes up for that. Can't wait to get my hand on dis one.

The best epic for ever

I love this book.

It's just not a novel. It can guide you through tough times.
Even though all 3 books are lengthy, they are rich in detail and great in imagination.

NO doubt, once you read it, you will read it many more times.

Have it as your collection. You wont regret spending 550 rs/-. Its worth more than many fortunes.

REALLY GOOOD

Loved it.. The book is awesome as its the 50th anniversary edition and the story is epic \m/ \m/ Have to read this one but mind you, its a bit complicated and boring in the beginning..Well, the story gets building later on and you will find it bloody interesting..The poems, riddles and all the imaginary characters are awesome..A mere person couldn't have thought of all these.

And flipkart, awesome service. got the book the very next day.
