The first movie venture for 'The Next Generation' crew, is also a great book. Deeper storyline, superb sound effects, and masterful narration. An excellent book, and yet another worthwhile addition to my collection.

A great book, based upon the movie of the same name, but with more depth to the storyline, and how things developed 'behind the scenes' (so to speak).

Excellent!

If you've ever watched the movie, you'll also enjoy this. Having Star Trek actors narrating the story, adds to the atmosphere, and really brings the story to life.

A great listen, and well worth buying.

Merry and Pippin, captured by orcs, escaped into Fangorn Forest and there encountered the Ents. And all the time the armies of the Dark Lord are massing.

WOW!! Absolutely superb! A truly amazing book, from start to finish. The Lord of the Rings movies, really don't even scratch the surface. This is, without doubt, a masterpiece. Excellently written, and narrated with style.

Frodo and the Companions of the Ring have been beset by danger during their quest to prevent the Ruling Ring from falling into the hands of the Dark Lord by destroying it in the Cracks of Doom. Now they continue their journey alone down the great River Anduin, alone, that is, save for the mysterious creeping figure that follows wherever they go.

Sauron, the Dark Lord, has gathered to him all the Rings of Power - the means by which he intends to rule Middle-earth.

Whisked from his comfortable hobbit hole by Gandalf the wizard and a band of dwarves, Bilbo Baggins finds himself caught up in a plot to raid the treasure hoard of Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous dragon. Smaug certainly looked fast asleep, when Bilbo peeped once more from the entrance. He was just about to step out onto the floor when he caught a sudden thin ray of red from under the drooping lid of Smaug's left eye. He was only pretending to be sleep! He was watching the tunnel entrance!

The Genius Of Tolkien

Overall
5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 23-01-10

I've owned the printed version of this book for a number of years now, and from the moment I started reading it, I realised why it was called a classic.

The 'Lord of the Rings' movies, only offer a mere hint of the legend that is Bilbo Baggins. The only way to fully appreciate this story, is to experience it through the book.

I'm hoping now that 'The Hobbit' movie will reveal the intricacies of the story, and offer a real look into, as the review title says, 'The Genius Of Tolkien'.
