I'm always so inspired by the art contained in this series of books. The writing is lacking mainly due to the fact there is none. But the pictures tell a thousands stories. Absolutely awe inspiring and a tribute to the efforts in those gorgeous films, even with the work that didn't make it to the film.Collin!
The lord of the rings is a very in depth book that with change your hole idea on adventurer and has become my favorite book ever ,and i intend on reading the rest of the Sears i love calm shire and the mines of morea the wizards battling and cave troll and Frodo the best hero ever.Charlotte
I liked the plot and it was well written, to the point it was gripping.Annie
I am almost through the book- 4 chapters left!The only thing that I despise and adore about J.R.R Tolkien is his love of description and the language he uses. The book draws on with no need for certain description and needs of description, but the language draws you in and hooks you to the setting, characters, and theme.Though it may also be because I saw the movie before actually diving into the literary world of the hobbits, I enjoy the creativity that rushes from the pages like waves (pun hehehe). I am excited to get through the first and continue on with the rest.(I have read The Hobbit (prequel) and loved it and will probably love this one as well)Brent Coros
Not too much to say, amazing, can't wait to finish the next twoEric H

This book has lots of interesting things to look at. It's got a boatload conceptual drawings and paintings, and lots of information from the artists and wardrobe people.Vicki

This is a great boo for young readers that are looking for a challenge. I think all people should read the book because it is a great adventure story and the book goes well with the movie. I think it deserves a 5 star rating. It is an amazing book!!! You should read the series.Ashwise
I love concept art and this was amazing!Michael Lezza
I felt like the first chapter was really dry and had a bunch of big words. But after that it was great I loved it. It was so entertaining I couldn't put it down. I would recommend this to 6th graders and up.
