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.

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.

My review is only about the quality of this box set booksSince flipkarts mix the reviews for all editions so I classify my review for this edition to be specific:

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 ViewAssuming 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.

It's not spending, it's an investment.I do not think I am qualified enough to comment on the contents of the books or the ability of the author. As for the physical conditions of the books and the services of flipkart, I would say they are top class.

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, the… (Expand)
