Recommended for: Lovers of good fiction, fantasy lovers, fans of the movie trilogy
Read in January, 2005

What a wonderful discovery it was to read this book, shamefully, after watching the movie. Frodo's not a complete pussy, Sam's not a blundering puppyish idiot, Pippin and Merry have more than two emotions and every character has a read depth and personality.
The plot soars from the first sentence and never once loses altitude, sweeping the reader on to a wonderful, exciting and beautiful adventure in a land so well described it can't help but feel true.
This is a must read to anyone with a brain and anyone with a flavor for fantasy.
