    "The world its history in this story is meticulously built and the characters that populate it are rich and full of detail. Everything about the story is very complex and ambiguous and will challenge any preconceived notions you have about fantasy worlds and fiction in general. This is a must read for any lover of fantasy or historical drama. "

    "The three part volume , let me rephrase that. The three part epic volume of Lord of the rings starts right here with part 1. By now every one should know what the lord of the rings series is, from the moves to the books to the games etc. So if you are new and do not know about it this is first part you have to read before you get deep into the series.

    "This tale is one of my favorite classic stories. My girlfriend insisted that i read it a while back and I fell in love with it. That doesn't happen with me regarding books very often whatsoever. I was immediately engaged with the very complex storyline and fantastic characters. Pick up a copy soon!"
