Editorial Reviews

Review

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for my need, and perfect for JUST the read!
By John William Mazzochi on February 28, 2020
I bought two of these books to take with me to MegaCon in Orlando this year and have signed by the actors who played the Hobbits in the LOTR movies. These books are to be gifts for my family who love LOTR. For that purpose, these books are PERFECT! They are economically feasible, compact, and have really unique design. Again, PERFECT for having signed and then being keepsakes. OR, if you are new to LOTR and want JUST to read the book in its physical form, and pay little to do so, then these are PERFECT! However, if you are a die-hard LOTR fan and want big sprawling maps and illustrations and the like, these books are NOT for you! Ideal for the pocket, travel, on the go reader or newbie. Also, these books are a little over 6" tall, and are the light blue ones depicted in the advert above, and are actually really nice looking!

3.0 out of 5 stars Very small print size
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on November 2, 2018
Not a review of the book (which is obviously a classic and excellent) but of the print - the type font used is very small. This might be an issue for some readers. This review refers to the paperback Harper Collins 2011 edition of the Two Towers with the black and red cover.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Sequel
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on February 19, 2021
This is an interesting sequel with again many interesting scenes and characters not in the film, particularly concerning the Palantir. Unfortunately it is very slow going and I found it particular difficult to read the Battle of Helms Deep and beyond. If you want to read this, I would recommend reading it before watching the films if you can. This is a lovely copy to have with wonderful watercolour illustrations, so I would recommend purchasing this copy.
