      Synopsis

      Large print hardback edition of the first volume of J.R.R. Tolkien's epic adventure, The Lord of the Rings, complete with fold-out map. Sauron, the Dark Lord, has gathered to him all the Rings of Power -- the means by which he intends to rule Middle-earth. All he lacks in his plans for dominion is the One Ring -- the ring that rules them all -- which has fallen into the hands of the hobbit, Bilbo Baggins. In a sleepy village in the Shire, young Frodo Baggins finds himself faced with an immense task, as his elderly cousin Bilbo entrusts the Ring to his care. Frodo must leave his home and make a perilous journey across Middle-earth to the Cracks of Doom, there to destroy the Ring and foil the Dark Lord in his evil purpose. Now available in large print and impossible to describe in a few words, JRR Tolkien's great work of imaginative fiction has been labelled both a heroic romance and a classic fantasy fiction. By turns comic and homely, epic and diabolic, the narrative moves through countless changes of scene and character in an imaginary world which is totally convincing in its detail.

      • An epic beginning!
        From Amazon

        I'm not a die-hard fantasy fan but I truly enjoyed Fellowship of the Ring (and am currently working on The Two Towers). It is a delightful combination of poetry, lovable characters, beautiful descriptive writing, and adventure. Tolkien is an incredible wordsmith and paints beautiful (or terrifying) pictures of scenery, from the clouds in the sky to the grass on the ground. The reader can see the forests, the mountains, the rivers, even the clothing worn by the characters. The characters in this story are diverse and fascinating, coming from different races, speaking different languages, but all having a common purpose and a profound friendship. Frodo, a hobbit, the humblest of all creatures, is chosen to embark on a perilous journey to destroy the One Ring, the greatest instrument of evil known to Middle Earth. Together with eight other companions, they begin the first leg of their heroic journey to Mount Doom.

      • could have been better
        From Amazon

        I would have liked to know, before ordering, that the books in question were not the full original, but a radio adaptation

      • mediocre fantasy
        From Amazon

        Despite the fact Tolkien has inspired hundreds of great fantasy authors, these books are boring. They detail way too much environment, the characters are stale and the action is warm at best. What more could you ask for to completely avoid a book? I listened to the audiobook and while I realize Inglis is a sub-par reader when it came to many of the characters, the book just isn't engaging. I don't think the tone of voice would've fixed it all that much (but it would've vastly improved the action scenes and tougher characters)

      • Fellowship of the Rings-Unabridged
        From Amazon

        This CD set is quite enjoyable to listen to. It includes the entire book and the narrator does a nice job of adding intrigue to the story with his voice renditions of the different characters. It's a lot of fun to listen to this after listening to the BBC dramatization as this fills in the parts that are cut out in the BBC version. I would recommend this to any Lord of the Rings fan. I look forward to listening to the other two books in the trilogy and The Hobbit unabridged once I'm finished listening to this book on CD.

      • Love the Large Print!
        From Amazon

        I have now passed my 50th Birthday several years ago and am having more difficulty reading the small print in some books. These Charnwood Series of books are just what the doctor ordered for me and those like me. I'm now looking for more from this line.
