1.0 out of 5 stars Cash Grab
By Chris R on November 3, 2021
As a Lord of the Rings fan, I was incredibly excited about this product. Unfortunately, the product did not live up to my expectations. I've listed the negatives below:

- Very few illustrations that add zero value to the experience. If you were expecting "Harry Potter Illustrated Version" levels of content, you won't find that here.
- The pages are concerningly thin. I'd compare them to the colorful tissue paper you put in gift bags.
- The book is prepared with little to no care (examples in pictures). Make sure you go through your book before it finds your bookshelf, as I was amazed at how many pages were misprinted or cut.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing product! Great edition for collectors
Reviewed in India on October 25, 2018
I bought the 60th Anniversary edition (hardcover). I paid Rs. 2,999 and after receiving the book, I must say it's worth the price, although the delivery by Amazon was abysmal (delivery was delayed by 3-4 days).

Inside the packaging by Amazon, there's a cardboard box by Harper Collins that stores the book. The book is also protected by the slipcase, which is of good-quality plastic. The binding is very sturdy. The cover and back designs are beautiful, and the spine is a beauty to look at.

There are 50 illustrations by Alan Lee printed on high quality paper. In fact, the pages of the book feel very superior and letter size is perfect to read.

To anyone interested in buying this edition, go for it! You won't regret it one bit.
