    " This is the adult introduction for to Tolkien's magical universe. The book is wonderfully narrated. The audio book format is the only way that I could enjoy the book. Way too much detail for my taste for action and intrigue packed reads. "

    " I think this book did get boring during the first part, other than that it was stunning. I have just finished the Return of the King and the whole series is great. A must read. "

    " A very good read but it takes a long time to pick up. This book is half setup for the trilogy. It's mostly exposition so I had to bare through it to get to what I deem the good stuff but it is by no stretch of the imagination a badly written book. Tolkien is just a stickler for details. "

    " Just as brilliant as i remembered, actually better. Gandalf, Galadriel and Boromir are may favourite characters... by the way i have seen the movies and read these before so I am fully aware of all heartaches that occur even if i refuse to accept them... :) I love this story! "

    " The writing was gorgeous, perhaps I just don't take to fantasy stories but I found this really hard to follow and quite dry in bits. Of course it was much better than the movie with the walking ;) "

    " Loved it. The book was far better than the movie but it was great that another author was chosen to be recognized. It was a book that I had to read twice in my life to get all the way through it. But with age comes wisdom. "

    " If you like very detailed descriptions (such as what the color red looks like) than this is the book for you. If you don't, I recommend just watching the movies. "

    " This a re-reading. After reading modern fantasy stories (actually, I'm looking at Name of the Wind), this is obsolete. Yes, a mark in worldbuildng, and the father of all fantasy stories but, despite that, a regular book. Boring beginning, poor plot... Read it for historical purposes. "
