About the Book

THE LORD OF THE RINGS is J.R.R. Tolkien's great three-volume epic set in the imaginary world of the Third-Age of Middle-earth - a world inhabited by many strange beings, including hobbits, an ancient people, smaller than dwarves, peace-loving and shy. Since its original publication, this work has caught the imagination of readers of all ages and walks of life. It is an adventure story, an adult fairy tale, a classic myth which Michael Straight has called one of the "very few works of genius in recent literature."
